Card & Great Idea



I received this stamp free from Whipper Snapper. Anna Wight posted recently about spending $60.00 and you get a free stamp of your choice. I have procrastinated for some time on buying stamps and when I saw free stamp.....well, I was sucked in. I love my new stamps. I used prisma & gamsol to color the card. I wasn't too creative on this one since I loved how they colored it on the stamp itself.




My SIL sent me this email about sending a card to the troops so I wanted to pass it along.

A Great Idea!!!

When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:


A Recovering American soldier


c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center


6900 Georgia Avenue,NW


Washington,D.C. 20307-5001
If you approve of the idea, please pass it on to your e-mail list.

Have a Happy Friday!!

EDIT: My friend Rachele (http://www.theinkboutique.blogspot.com/) sent me this email....You could always do what I do and mail your cards to Dawn. Dawn forwards the cards to her DH in Iraq who gives them out to troops to send home to their loved ones...just a thought.

ME and my kids made about 20 cards last year and sent them and they were all returned with a note telling us that due to heightened security all mail notaddressed to a specific soldier was being returned. We were VERYdisappointed. Please take a moment and forward this to everyone you mighthave asked to do this as unfortunately it won't serve the soldiers we carefor. There is a charity called Cards for Soldiers and you can get themcards which they send to active military in foreign countries, so this mightbe a better use of your time. Thanks for reading!From My Heart,Rachele FunkPreserving and Creating Memories Close To Your Heart!

isnt it unfortunate we can't send cards to non-specific soldiers now? Anyhow I got this email the other day from a friend, Xerox has a website with a bunch of cards school children drew/colored. select one and a message and they will copy/print it and send it to a member of the armed forces. Real easy, only takes a moment to do. Website is www.LetsSayThanks.com
