There is a HUGE need for Mother's Day cards ASAP because the cards have to be sent over at least 8 weeks ahead of the holiday/occasion. If you need to clean out your stash to make room for new goodies, I will gladly accept card fronts, completed cards, and *gasp* commercially made cards for any occasion to give to my friend whose mother sends them to the chaplains. I can finish card fronts and provide envelopes. Thanks for any help you can provide!
I don't usually have any "extra" cards since I seem to only make a card about 3-4 weeks after I should have sent it. HOWEVER ... I am still designing my shoebox project and if I can find my Mother's Day stamp I will incorporate it into the design and make a few extra (the colors might be different than the shoebox).
This is just the direction I needed to finalize (and prep etc.) my shoebox. I knew procrastination had merits!
Also, does anyone remember who was collecting soda can tabs? I couldn't find the thread (only did a quick search and it was from awhile ago). If she is going to be there Saturday I'll pack them. Otherwise, I'll get them mailed next week.
