Birthdays are all about giving so we are asking you to join us by creating a card or even a few for Cards for Soldiers. Please click on this link to find out more about Cards for Soldiers.  

We are asking you to complete as many as you can of the 5 card challenges, take a picture and link the cards here to this post or add them to the appropriate card album in the  FB group.
Then simply mail your cards to Cara Goedeking (Cara's address is provided by either commenting here with your email address and we will email it to you or you can request it on FB by messaging Nicole Brenna).


Cara will take all the cards created this weekend and send them to Cards for Soldiers in Mid August after all the cards have arrived. You have until JULY 31ST to create cards.

There are some guidelines from Cards for Soldiers that we must follow
Cards need to be 5.5" x 4.25"
No Glitter
Please include an envelope for the card
Cards must be blank on the inside
You can sign the back of your card with your name

Dark Cards must have a white area inside so the soldier has a place to write

Great sum up Nicole! I can't wait to see everyone's cards! Think how the soldiers will feel knowing that we care enough to hand craft cards for them to use. =)
