Cards for Heros & BBTB

Happy Monday Everyone! We are having a beautiful day here in Colorado. My kids are enjoying their last 2 days of summer and we will be back into the daily school madness rush really soon! It's crazy to think how fast our summer has flown.



So have you heard of Cards for Heros (cardsforheros.org)? If not it's a non-profit organization devoted to bringing joy to soldiers overseas by means of handmade cards. Handmade cards are sent to soldiers and they are able to pick out cards to send back to their families. Families really enjoy getting letters from their solider....and crafters can unite and joy together to help out these families in such a simple way.

Scrapstreet.com is currently running a 3-week sponsored contest to help out! If you love Jillibean Soup, Marks Paper & Company, and Elle's Studio...you will want to check out these prizes! So what are you waiting for head on over and check it all out and get involved in a good cause...it's not too late to sign up...head on over to this thread (http://scrapstreet.com/MessageBoard/index.php?topic=55753.0) to sign up today! Why not share your talents to brighten a soldiers day!

Here's a card that I made that also happens to utilize the challenge this week from BBTB which was to use the scallop square cut from the celebrations cartridge.




I hope you will join us! Meet some new friends and also do something nice for someone else! Have a super week everyone!

Hi Jen,
Missed ya! You made the right choice though..Our children r only little for such a very short time...You and I r a lot alike in the sense that we want our babies to stay little forever...Sadly they grow up...I guess just enjoy each stage of their precious little lives...Hugs, Krista
Ps..Cute little birds...
