Cards for Troops

I had a service project craft night at my house about six weeks ago and I am embarrassed to say that I am just now getting them sent off.  In my defense my husband just got home from over seas (not supposed to say where), he was home from work for a while (during which I got NOTHING done), then it was spring break and we went out of town.  So I just haven't had time. 

We had a lot of fun and made 52 cards.  I plan on having another one soon.  Oh, I also wanted to mention that we mostly used only scraps that I had been saving:  scraps, die cuts, and already stamped images from playing around.  It was great to reduce my stash and see it go to such a worthy cause.  I want to give a shout out for the lady that I am sending the cards to.  She gets cards from all over the place and lovingly finds troops to send them to.  Her name is Amber, and she has a website where she sells envelopes in different sizes and styles for very reasonable prices so that she can afford to send all these donated cards off.  You can get more information including her contact information here:  Clear Envelopes

I would also like to say a BIG Thanks to all those who came and participated in my little activity.  Here are some of what we came up with:

Thanks for visiting my wesite!
