World Card Making Day Event

I apologize for taking soooooo long to post this!!!! Things have been just nuts here and I've been procrastinating with the photo loading and sorting.....BECAUSE.....I started the loading process and had to postpone - when I came back to it - all my pictures were gone - this BLOG has been giving me somewhat of a hard time...BUT....

What a GREAT day we had for stamping!!!! Our World Card Making Day was centered around making cards for the local Appleton Army Reserve unit, stationed overseas. Everyone was in a GREAT mood as they had a blast making some fantastic cards to donate to the troops. All were encouraged to bring some cards from home, as well as items to donate to the care packages that the troops families will be sending out. Here are the cards that everyone made at the event and some of those donated cards:

These extra boxes were donated.......can you believe that??? There had to be over 300 cards!!!! The kids at the Hortonville Area School District donated some very special Halloween cards with personal messages inside for the troops! Thanks kids!

Here we have Denise K. (left) - thanks so much Denise for all your help in designing one of our featured cards and donating your supplies for that card. Thanks also for donating a box of envelopes and hundreds of cards from your stamping friends! In the middle - we had a VETERAN!!!!! Stacy L. came along to help make cards for those still overseas. She spent 18 months in Iraq with the Guards!!!! And on the right we have Lisa K. - Lisa is one of my Stampin' Up! demonstrators and a GREAT friend!!!! Thanks Lisa for all your help too!

Here are some of the items that were donated for the Troop care packages! I even had a couple stampers donate cash to help with the Troop families' shipping charges!!!

Jason K. and Cindy S. had a great time making their projects too!

Here I am in the middle showing off the cards that Jason made at home and donated to the cause......he is sooooooo talented - really an artist! Below is a photo of Jason' cards.

What looks like alot of concentration, also included alot of laughing with Linda at the table!!! Here's Lynette, Linda, Clare and Tracy hard at work.

Stacy, Lisa, Sue & Lynnette joking around. Notice that HUGE tape gun on the table - Sue is definately serious about her adhesive - she's calls it the TERRORIST TAPE GUN!!!!

We had some help with the food too!!!! Thanks to all who brought something to share - I was definately full when we were done!
