Stampin' for the Troops!!!!!

WOW!!! We had a GREAT turnout for this event and had tons of fun too!!!! In August Lisa Klotz, Cathy Miller, Kathy Beck and I - organized a day of stamping for our Troops! Some in attendance brought bags and boxes of cards to donate to our service men and women - to use to send home to their family & friends, some donated money and some brought treats to keep us energized! Some brought items to put in care packages for the troops too!
Each stamper made 10 cards - 2 each of 5 different designs. They kept one card and donated the other card to the Camo Quilt Project - the ladies at this fabulous organization will be sending these cards with the quilts that they make and send to soldiers serving in the war!
We raised over $200 with registration fees and donations to give to the Camo Quilt Project - please view their website HERE!!!!
I know from personal experience (my step-son served in Iraq) that these troops LOVE the cards that we send to them - when he opened up the box that he got a couple years ago - he said all the cards were gone in a few minutes - all kinds of cards for them to use...birthday, thinking of you, miss you, etc.....
Here's a card that was designed by Lisa to accompany the quilts:
Thank you to all that attended and helped brighten the day of a soldier!!!!
