A NEW YEAR ~ CARDS FOR A CAUSE ~ STAMP FROM THE HEART
 


First of all, thank you Lydia for giving me the heads up that the Cards for a Cause Challenge was in need of someone's assistance in keeping it alive going forward in 2011. I must say I have to give Julie (Readysetstamp671h) a huge pat on the back and a big ole warm and fuzzy hug for all of the effort, organization and work she put into Cards for a Cause in the past! What a kind, generous and *Compassionate* woman! It will not be easy filling those very capable shoes.

Same Mission ~ New Year!

1. As you all are aware, there are so many compassionate, generous and caring stampers in the SCS world. We plan to tap into that vast resource to keep this great challenge going. I will take the responsibility to insure that a destination for our cards is found and posted each month. I feel strongly that there are many important organizations in the lives of the stampers of SCS that they are compassionate to and thankful for within their own communities! I am excited that together, we can thank and reward these organizations throughout many communities by sharing our hand crafted treasures!

2. Beginning January 2011, a new thread will be started on the 1st of each month in the challenge forum by either myself or a Guest Challenge Hostess. It is there where the featured organization for the month will be announced. We will share a little information about the organization featured and how they are making a difference in their community. We will also use this thread to post any specific instructions as well as the address/contact person where the cards are to be mailed to.

3. We will ask the challenge participants to post comments in the thread throughout the month notifying us that they have partcipated by mailing their cards to the monthly featured organization. The thread can also be used to ask questions, chat about any details regarding the monthly cause or even as a place to post thank yous or news about the challenge throughout the month.

4. I am excited about the fact that SCS provides a venue whereby an organization can be recognized for doing good things in the communities of our SCS stampers. I will post a schedule in the Cards for A Cause Forum and will post updates on the various featured organizations just as soon as they are identified. Having this information in advance from month to month, may provide you the additional time you need to participate each and every month. Even though you have the opportunity to make cards ahead of time, in advance of the upcoming Cards for a Cause challenge, we would ask you that you not mail them early. Please mail your cards to the organization during the month they are featured so that the impact of receiving a *blast* of cards during their featured month is realized.

5. Lastly, we need your help! If you have an organization in mind that is located in your community (or any community for that matter!) that is near and dear to your heart, feel free to contact me to get on the schedule. You can host your own challenge or if you would prefer, I will host it for you. Spread the word to other stampers as well!

Anything to get me stamping and bringing cheer to others gets my vote!

triasimite 12-19-2010 01:31 PM

This is a challenge I have supported in the past and will continue to do so with each monthly challenge. Thanks, Cindy, for not allowing this cause to go awry.

hotwheels 12-23-2010 12:55 PM

Happy hotwheels

Ksnurse 12-25-2010 04:39 AM

I'd never checked this challenge before as seemed to much for me...but after the month long HYCCT challenge, I learned that every card doesn't have to take 4 hrs to do....heehee... so will keep my eye on this and plan to join in. Making others smile with my cards is a great reward.

SanuraScraps 12-26-2010 02:09 PM

This sounds cool for the new year. I'm challenging myself to make a difference in someone's life with my creations. This looks like a wonderful place to begin my journey. Thanks for the opportunity.
Question: How many cards do we do each month for the organization??

Joan7356 12-26-2010 02:14 PM

I am pretty new here but this is an awesome idea!

Marzipan 12-26-2010 03:15 PM

:pThis is an amazing challenge...please count me in!

JLP0806 12-27-2010 09:10 AM

Subbing! I've participated in some of the "Cards for a Cause" missions in the past and would love to do more!:smile:

Loopyg 12-27-2010 12:42 PM

I have participated in Cards for a Cause in the past and was sorry to see it end. Julie did a great job but I understood her reasons for having to give it up. Thank you so much for giving it a new life. I will be looking forward to joining the others in this challenge.

I'm new to SCS too but this looks like a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to seeing more details and sending some cards. Thanks for organizing this.

tryingtofindtime 12-30-2010 01:01 PM

looking foward to seeing what's ahead in this challange. new to SCS and working with OWH this year and hope to help more out there. Anything to keep me crafting instead of watching TV, or cleaning my house for that matter. lol.

LuvLee 12-30-2010 01:21 PM

Oh I hear THAT!!! Stampin' beats housecleaning any day!!!! ;) :mrgreen:

Mothermark 12-30-2010 09:17 PM

Wow! I am so tickled to see the response! I am excited too to get this off and running. I have challenges lined up for January, February and March! I will be posting January's on the 1st......thank you so much everyone for your positive responses here.....

To answer your question Sanura, you can make as many cards as you please. You can make one or you can make as many as you want for the organization. It all up to you and your available time through the month.

Each challenge could have some restrictions depending on the requests of the organization but it that is the case I will clearly post it in the challenge!

I am tickled at the response here and look forward to spending time with you all in 2011! Whoo hoo!

LuvLee 12-30-2010 10:10 PM

Restrictions?? Oh tell me I won't be banned from bling!!! :lol: ;)

Mothermark 12-31-2010 11:58 AM

Ha ha! Glitter comes to mine....in some instances! Giggle! What a goofball you are Lee!

LuvLee 12-31-2010 12:28 PM

Well......in that case I'll try to restrain myself!!! ;) :lol:

One more question I am not sure How mark your poll. Because some times I maybe send tons cards? and other times. Maybe just one or none? So not sure? Hotwheels

Hi there! I don't know how its going to work....we will just see.....if you dont send any cards don't mark the poll at all. If you send one card, just mark that you sent one card....and if you send tons of cards, just mark that you sent more than one card.

I won't have an accurate count but I can at least get a feel for approximately how many have been sent....No worries about that....its just me being curious as to how many are going out each month. Thanks for asking though and I will look forward to hearing from you later!

Happy New Year!

etsdas 01-03-2011 03:22 AM

Cindy, your name should be motheramazing, with all you find time to do.

Thank you for taking over this endeavor, and all the best. One of my New Year's Resolutions is to get more cards sent off for these various causes - and, as Sheri mentioned, to remember that I do not have to spend several hours making a card!

Aw....thanks Dorothy! Why am I not surprised to see you here posting......I know you do so much for the troops already......That is a wonderful New Year's Resolution and if I know you, you will succeed.

I think you and Sheri's advice on not spending 42,000 hours is a wise one! This is advice I need to take myself! Giggle!

Happy today!

Count me in, You Amazing Woman, You! Your crown is sure to be a heavy one.

RTJmom 01-06-2011 05:05 AM

Oh my goodness, I am sooo happy Cards for a Cause is going to continue this year!!! I was crushed when I thought we weren't going to be able to do it anymore. I'm one of those card makers that loves to make cards; but then I get a whole stack of them and look at them and think "ok, now what?"!! The fact that I can make them, and send them on their merry little way to someone else and hopefully bring a smile to someone's face just tickles me silly!!

Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!

Mothermark, thanks for doing this. From what I've been reading in the other posts, looks like you ressurected this worthy cause.

I will PM you tonight or sometime this weekend.

I'll be making cards over the weekend so I should be able to mail some before the end of the month.

Thanks again.

No worries Linda...you can put them here but more people might see them if you put it in the thread for the January card drive. Each month I will post a completely new thread for each monthly challenge and you can post links to your cards there if you would like!

Thanks for all you do!
