Cards for the Troops Re-Cap by Vicki Wolfe

Posted on by Laura

If you have not been able to attend a Cards for the Troops event and you would like to, our next event is September 8th.  Card making reservations are for 10-2pm, 2-6pm, or both spots.  This event is free, but we ask that you reserve your spot.  We look forward to seeing you there.  If you cannot attend, but would like to donate handmade cards, envelopes, or supplies – we accept donations for the events year round.  See below for a re-cap of our last event.

Thanks to everybody who participated in the last Cards for Troops Crop!  Our final total mailed to Operation Write Home was 445 Cards!
Special thanks go to the following cardmakers:
Laura, for the use of the space and for donations of prizes and products.
Marlene, for making and inspiring all those card kits.
Alphina and Dianne for making the incredible totes.
Cheryl for donation of Stampin’ Up for the prize basket.
All those who donated cards and envelopes and contributed to the mailing/envelope fund–too many to list!
Everybody who brought lunch and goodies to share, and everybody who came and participated and, I hope, had a good time!!!
Anyone who gets the newsletter from OWH knows that an SOS has gone out for more cards needed!  (Check out the website at OperationWriteHome.org) This has prompted us to try to schedule another cardmaking crop  ASAP.  If you have any cards cluttering up your space that you have been meaning to donate, this is the time!  Of if you have the urge to create a few, don’t hesitate.  Either contact me or drop the cards at Scrapbook Paradise marked  Cards for Troops and I will get them.
When our plans for another crop are finalized I will be emailing you again.
Thanks again to everybody who made this day such a success!
Vicki Wolfe
