More Cards

We got another box off to another FOB. That makes the count to 3 different FOB's that we are sending cards to!! WHOOO HOOOO!!!
Anytime we can spread a little cheer to these soldiers who put their lives on hold and make out a blank check to the USA for, and including, up to his or her life. We are in DESPERATE need for Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa cards. If you have extra's from years past, or have homemade one's you want to donate, please do so. These soldiers can mail these free cards home for free and they just LOVE them. They don't have the availability to go to Wal-Mart and pick up a few cards here and there so that's why we do what we do! Please email me if you'd like to help. Please forward on this to anyone who you know would like to help!
Lets spread some cheer!

Always remember

Never forget, never stop teaching our children either.
For when we stop remembering and teaching then their memory dies with us. Let us continue to remind our next generations of why our
soldiers are fighting and who we need to thank for letting
us sleep in a free land.
And let us keep each and every soldier and their families in our prayers.
Thank you to each and every single soldier
who has and currently is serving our country!

A Book

One of my Blue Star Mom Friends, Christina, stopped by today
and gave me a small, sweet little book.
It's a small book with some BIG quotes,
quotes that tell it like it is,
both sweet and sour.
One touched me, the core of me,
of a Mom waiting for her child to come home safely
and I wanted to share it.
Thank you Christina, for being so sweet and my friend.
I added my daughters name in it to personalize it.

it's all about the JOURNEY.

we are CREATED by it.

we are made STRONGER by it.

we are DESTROYED by it.

and we are REBORN from it.

for as far as your road goes YVONNE...

Card fronts

When we get card fronts from stamping demo's (thank you SO much ladies!!) we organize them in these boxes according to card type.
After we make them into full cards, we add envelopes and organize them into these clear boxes that have locking lids, add dividers to separate the card types, then mail it off to a Chaplain.

We just received another Chaplains name that is at a pretty big FOB and is anxiously awaiting this box of cards for "his guys."

SO cute for him to put it that way!

Thank you for your support ladies! You're gonna put smiles on soldiers faces!
