And they arrived today! What fun going through another box of beautiful cards. Each time I open another package, I am overwhelmed with the talent and generosity of everyone.

So..do you want another total, do ya, huh huh? Good, because you're going to get it. Drum roll please....

1591!!

At the beginning of this project, I thought maybe I'd get 500 cards and I'd be happy. Well, I'm happy 3 times over!

Thanks again, everyone!

I mailed you out 58 assorted cards today so hopefully they'll arrive early next week.Now that I have whittled done my stack a little I can sort of justify all the new paper I ordered because I "needed" it!

Jackie,

Thanks so much for sending the cards! I'll keep my eye out for them and let you know when they arrive. I totally understand the "needing" paper - why is that such a hard thing to resist!?

Good morning everyone,

There hasn't been much action here for a little bit (I find it tends to come in spurts), so I thought I would upload a card that my son made for the military project. It's so fun when our kids get involved in something beyond themselves. I think he was feeling a little put out that my daughter and I were making cards and ignoring him. He's learning early - get involved in what your girls are doing! LOL

I had a small bump up in the card total! That's alright, because the contributions came from my kids. My daughter finished her OSW cards (they look awesome) and my son made 1 card (the link is in the post previous to this). We now sit at 1,612!! If you are interested, please PM me and I'll send you some info and/or my address on where to send cards.

I know some of you ladies expressed interest a few months ago, and I did send my address to quite a few of you, but I haven't heard anything since. Are you still planning on sending a few cards? All contributions are accepted and appreciated! I know summer time is very busy; holidays and family time are priorities while the weather is so nice. Enjoy the beautiful weather -it seems to come and go so quickly.

Glad to hear my cards arrived safely. I'm wondering if it is to late to send blank Christmas cards? I have some left from last year I could sent if there is still time.

Thank you. I'll keep an eye out for the box. I've been told that before (about the postal rates). Doesn't make much sense to me, but that's Canada Post for you. My sis-in-law always has me stuff the express post bag as full as possible because it's the same price no matter the weight.

New Card Total: My demo gave me some more card fronts, so now that they're all officially made into cards, I can add them to the boxes! We're now sitting at 1,732!!

Well done, and thanks again!

Hello all,
I just realized that my son's card that I uploaded previously (and put the link on this thread) did not load properly. So, I'm giving it another try. Here it is:

I have a new card total!! Thank to Rainy daze and her contribution we are now up to 1,772!! Thanks again!

My local MP's office contacted me today and they said that unfortunately they are not allowed to use the "franc" (spelling?) - their mailing system to help me deliver the cards. They have now contacted the Department of National Defence to see if they can help! If not, I'm still waiting for my hubby's trucker buddy to go to Manitoba. The cards will get to A Card for Home - ONE WAY OR ANOTHER - so keep them coming. I love all the beautiful creations.

Your package arrived today! Thanks for the beautiful cards. Were some of them made with the scrapbooking kits? With your contribution, our new card total is 1,878! I try to remember to say "ours" because this isn't just my project. All of you are helping in this.

Have a great evening,

We have another card total! Tnewhook's cards arrived yesterday - fishy friends never looked so cute!! Drum roll... we now sit at 1,892!! I'm almost obsessive enough to sit and make 8 cards today so that we can hit the 1,900 mark.

On another note, Global Edmonton will be intereviewing me next Thursday as their "we got good news" segment. They're planning on spending at least an hour with me, so that should be fun. I'll let you know when it will air.

I corresponded with A Card for Home this week too. They're going to be a part of Creativ Festival in Toronto, so if anybody is in that area, look them up and visit their booth and tell them I sent you.

We hit 1,900!!!

Thanks to my demo giving me a couple cardfronts and me finally completing a few cards we hit a new total! I so wanted to do that before I get interviewed for TV on Thursday.

Unfortunately it was having to create a sympathy card that got me in the swing of making some more.

Well, Global News Edmonton was here this morning interviewing me for the military cards. I'm sure I didn't explain it very well, and forgot to mention certain things, but oh well, to quote Zack from Canadian Idol: "it is was it is".

It will either air tonight (Thursday) at 5:00 or tomorrow (Friday) at 5:00 as part of the "got good news" section.

On a postive note, I had the Policy Development and Research Manager contact me from the military, and he said that the Director of Military Family Services received my request for sending cards from Alberta to Manitoba and that we should be able to work something out!! YEAH - the person here will contact me next week.

So...I'm still collecting - so keep them coming.

It's confirmed! I just got an e-mail from one of the Global anchors (Lynda Steele for those in the Edmonton area) confirming that the story about our military cards will be on at 5:00 today (Thursday).

Let me know if you see me!

With digital cable, I get timeshifting of the major channels, and wouldn't you know I get Global Calgary & Vancouver, but not Edmonton? I even watched two hours of Global news last night (just in case you know!) Do you know if they posted your segment online? I've tried the Global Edmonton site but they don't have a search option (how any major site - espcially a news site - can not have on in this day and age is just beyond my comprehension). Anyway, if it is, post a link so we can all see.

I went searching through the Global Edmonton site, too, and couldn't find the story at all. I guess it doesn't rate being put on the world wide web. SCS rocks, though. Look at us - we have our own thread!!

I'll go looking again and see if I can find anything. I did find out that the story ran three time (early news, noon news and 5:00). I was pretty happy about that. My son was pumped that they did a close up of his card!

Terry, thanks for wanting to know more! I will send you an e-mail right away.

On another note, a pack of cards arrived from TNewhook, so I have another card total! It stands at 1,908. We kind of hit a bit of a lull for awhile, but I'm really hoping they start rolling in again.

Anybody else interested in contributing?
