My Daughter's 17th Birthday Card

     My daughter likes black and white cards, and cats.  She loves cats.  Did I say she loves cats?

219 Cards on their way to Operation Write Home

     That is my final count.  219 cards in this shipment to Operation Write Home.  Most of them are tucked away in the box, but here are a few that I threw together at the last minute to pack that box to the brim.

Final Countdown for Operation Write Home donation.

     My box is basically full for my Operation Write Home donation.

Sentiment is My Favorite Things Clearly Sentimental about Art (discontinued).

     When I went through the box to stamp the logo on the back of the cards I noticed that since I had been saving cards over several years, there were a few sets of cards where I had more than 5 of the same or similar design.  I use to be allowed to make 7 or 8 of the same design, but now I am limited to 5 since there are fewer boxes being sent to fewer troops.

Jodie Lee Designs Fairy Belle Collection Stamp (Free with a card making magazine).
Sentiment is from Fiskars Heidi Grace Greetings which appears to be discontinued.

     I had to take some cards out of the donation box and put them in a smaller donation box that I hope to have filled up by fall.  I have a lot of Christmas cards which I shouldn't send this early plus extra LOVE cards, and other miscellaneous cards.
