Welcome 2011!

Happy New Year All!

I must say our first shipment for the year has been a successful one! Here is what my scrapbook room looked like when a couple of friends came over to help me with this overwhelming pile:

New Year's 005 New Year's 006

And the results were 7200 cards to send to the troops! That’s 20 Large Flat Rate boxes full! Amazing huh? I know I say it over and over again but I just can’t thank you all enough! I will try to send out a personal note to each of you that enclosed your emails as well within the next few days, as you can see I’ve been a bit busy! I have to say thank you again to the Card Maker Magazine readers who are sending due to the Reader’s Reach Out article! Please keep them coming!

Also, thank you so much for the postage donations! They are greatly appreciated and with my shipping costs now having quadrupled much needed!

We need envelopes!!! I finally had to break down and order envelopes for the first time as we actually ran out! I found a great place to get them though so if anyone knows of someone who doesn’t make cards but wants to help they can always send an envelope donation! Action Envelope their web address is: www.Envelopes.com

and here are then envelopes we need:


Just a few reminders again:

Cards should be blank inside, a small stamped greeting is OK but there must be room for the soldiers to write handwritten notes.

Dark cards must have a white or light paper added inside. The soldiers don’t have access to light colored pens to write on that dark cardstock. Same for envelopes, please add a white label to them if you send a dark envelope.

NO GLITTER unless it’s Ranger Stickles or it’s covered with something that makes it not fall off if you rub it!

Handmade cards only please!

Thank you all again and enjoy the new year and what it brings!
