Cards for Our Troops - Christmas Edition - Part 5

Here it is - a FIFTH design for the StampinJewels Cards for Our Troops Events this month! Woohoo!! I am so thrilled to be doing this, and to know that when all the cards are completed - StampinJewels family & friends will have sent 150 Christmas Cards to some of our troops in Iraq! And it wouldn't have happened on this scale without the help of the stampers who gave the gift of their time and talent, and put their love into the stamping and assembling of these cards.


The final event for this month is tonight, Oct. 17th
at Malta Library. Find more info on the StampinJewels Calendar.
Check back to the Calendar often, to find out about future Cards for Our Troops events...St. Valentine's Day cards are next on my wish list to make and send! :)

Juli, Juli, Juli!!! Your cards are *awesome* !!!! I can't wait to get your BOX in the mail! You and your stampers are so kind to take the time and effort to donate to *our mission*, "Stampin' From the Heart for the Troops. These cards you are donating are going DIRECTLY into the hands of our troops who are deployed in Iraq - THANK YOU from the bottom of my HEART! Martie

I love this card, Juli! I like the colors you used and how nice that mistletoe image looks stamped on the green. Very pretty!
