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
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.
