Valentines for Solidiers Stamp-a-thon

Over the weekend, nine terrific ladies joined me at my 2nd annual Valentines for Soldiers  Stamp-a-thon.  We had a wonderful time making 158 Valentines cards to send our soldiers stationed in the likes of Iraq and Afghanistan.  Hopefully they will be able to send the love home to their families & loved ones with these cards. 
hanks to Barb, Elaine, Judy S., Judy T., Kathy, Marla, Mary, Patti & Sally for all your help and support.  Thanks to Kim who was not able to join us but sent some money to help pay for postage. 

To our dear Laurie who was not able to be with us.  We hope your recovery is swift so that you will be able to rejoin us real soon.

Making cards for with my peeps something I love to do and the memories we make are abundant.

Love Ya

If you love stamping or if you love that I love stamping, then this card is for you.  Happy Valentine’s Day!  I wish I could have made a stack and had one in each of your mail boxes today however, I've been busy helping my Grandson's with their Valentines Day projects for school.  We used every heart die and punch that I own.  What fun we had!!!

Valentines for Soldiers Stamp-a-thon

On December 10th, I hosted a  Valentines for Soldiers Stamp-a-thon.  Yes–right in the midst of the busy holiday season, some wonderful and talented ladies gave up a day of shopping for a day of stamping.   We made 140 cards which was far and beyond my goal of 100 cards.  We also had 179 previously made cards and 92 card fronts donated (thanks Judy Sumner).  Thanks to Patti Schnell and Mary Ellen Cope who generously donated product for some of the cards.  It was great friends who made this event so successful and I am so appreciative of your support and commitment.    


I plan on hosting another event sometime in March for Mother's Day and Father's Day cards.  I will let you know as soon as I have finalized a date.  I hope you will be able to join us for this worthwhile cause. 


A BIG thanks to my brother Dave, who came to support us by cutting cardstock, blending beverages and taking these awsome pictures:
