Cards for Heroes!

Hi!!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  I just wanted to post about something one of the S4L girls told us about.  Thanks, Jenney!  Jennifer McGuire from CK is hosting a card drive for our soldiers.  As soon as I heard about this, I was all on it.  All you need to do is send in your holiday cards to the address on her blog.  I went through my box of handmade cards and found at least 25 Christmas cards, put them in a big yellow envelope and mailed them out!  



I couldn't even imagine having a loved one overseas.  Although it's not much, I am glad I was able to do a little something for these soldiers who are away from their family and friends.  May God watch over over them and keep them safe!  I hope you can participate!  Also, if you are not a scrapbooker or cardmaker, they will take store bought cards, too.  

Before I go, just want to share a couple of layouts I did earlier in the week!  Yep, still working on the twins' first birthday party pics.  That's what happens when you take way too many pictures!  LOL!  Here's the birthday boy:


Supplies used:  Basic Grey Cupcake Collection (paper, letters, stickers, & chipboard), Doodlebug Paper Frills, Dollar Store foam letters, Colorbox Ink (Chestnut Roan), Chocolate Zig Writer and White Puffy Paint

And here's another "birthday" layout I did using the this week's sketch from Creative Scrappers.



Supplies Used:  Basic Grey Cupcake Collection (paper & letters), buttons, floss, paper clip, Chocolate Zig Writer, Colorbox Ink (Chestnut Roan) and Chocolate Zig Writer

Enjoy the rest of your week!  God Bless!
