Kits for a friend

I belong to a little FB group of ladies who support OWH and also like to do swaps and trade supplies.  One of the ladies, N, is planning to take her cardmaking supplies to the hospital during an upcoming stay and a few of us volunteered to send her some kits.  It can't be easy to put together kits while also thinking of all the other things you'd need to do at home before being away for several days.

I looked through my papers and decided to use the DCWV Green Tea stack.  I really love this stack for its patterns and color scheme.  I hope N likes it too. 

Here's the one card I made.  There are five identical kits on their way to her.  Of course, I wrote a little note to N in this card, but I stuck it to a Post-it.  Some OWHers do this so they can then reuse the card and send it to our heroes.
