YOU Did It! - Cards for Our Troops
The first StampinJewels Cards for Our Troops event was a success! THANK YOU to Anita, Cathy, Jen, Patti, Susan & Theresa for joining me in stamping and assembling cards!! A BIG THANKS to Jay at JDZ's Pizza downtown Malta, IL for the use of his room at the restaurant. We had fun chatting, stamping & enjoying pizza and snacks.
The above two cards are what Cathy worked on - both her own designs! She said she was inspired by other sites and galleries - aahh, a stamper after my own heart - another who knows the joy of CASE'ing (Copy And Share Everything)!!
The first design uses the Doodle This stamp set to create poinsettia-like flowers, as well as a Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folder - D'vine Swirls. The second design features the NEW Snow Swirled stamp set. GREAT JOB, Cathy and THANKS for your donation for the Cards for Our Troops event!
Between Cathy's cards and the cards the other fabulous gals helped with - we've got 81 cards completed, and many more in progress - WAHOOO! The initial StampinJewels goal was 100 cards - now it's 200 cards. I'm going to add another design for the Oct. 17th event (please see my Calendar here for details.)
I'll post more Cards for Our troops designs over the next few days - I've got at least three more to share with you, so stay tuned! ENJOY!
