Some of the demonstrators in my Luv 2 Stamp Group got together today to mount some card fronts and make them into folded cards with envelopes to send to our troops in the middle east. We got about 400 cards mounted today!!!!!
These cards will be available for servicemen and women to send home to loved ones, free of charge. We had a wonderful day visiting, talking about the new catalog and making these cards!
Jenna.. these cards will be on their way to you on Monday! :) Thanks for organizing this!!
(has to blur the cover of the new catalog!! ) :)
We still have about 400 more cards to mount so we will be making some for Ronald McDonald House the next time we get together!
UPDATE: for those wanting more info on donating Cards for the Troops (cards for them to send back home for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc), you may contact the following:
http://www.fromourhearts.info From Our Hearts is a not-for-profit 501c3 that was started by stampers wanting to help service men and women stay in touch with their loved one back home in the States by providing them with quality handcrafted greeting cards. Today, our international effort has sent thousands of cards to our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, all donated by the huge stamping community world wide.
And another place to donate:
