Other organizations that do the same service do not allow glitter. Can we use glitter?

va.sunshine 01-01-2013 07:17 AM

hey Cindy, I would say no. Most cards for soldiers do not allow glitter, so lets keep with that. thank you for your willingness to help.

va.sunshine 01-01-2013 07:40 AM

thanks Cindy for the reminder...I added the NO glitter restriction to the post!

Going to hit the craft room Monday and get some cards done.

va.sunshine 01-05-2013 04:17 PM

thanks so much ladies, you gals are awesome!

I am thinking of adding a fun optional challenge each month to get your creative juices flowing. What you think about that? I was thinking fun and easy; perhaps colors, inspiration photo, or sketch. Nothing involved and totally optional. I would luv to know your thoughts on that?

cydstamps 01-06-2013 01:53 PM

I think that would be great! Thanks for all you do!

Missro 01-06-2013 06:38 PM

Wonderful cause! I'll get some cards done this week. I like your idea of a challenge...bring it on!! Thanks for all you do Teresa!

shendrian 01-07-2013 05:15 AM

A terrific cause. I'll be making some cards in the next week or so. Your idea of an Optional Challenge sounds great!

marshallgal 01-07-2013 06:46 AM

Excellent cause, Teresa, and I will love to participate. Love your idea of an optional challenge, too!

Thanks for the terrific cause this month. My grandfather was a veteran of WWI and all servicemen and women hold a special place in my heart!
I do have one question. Is it ok to include juvenile themed cards? I'm guessing that some of the service people currenly deployed may have young children.
