That's brilliant Debbie, as Ina says its a great service you do, must be hard work too, we have to pay an accountant here to do a nil return as steve has to pay his taxes in England due to the job he had.
Thanks, Ina. It feels good to know I'm appreciated. Not one person I have helped over the years has not thanked me. I thought one guy was going to kiss me one year. He was sure he was going to have to pay a lot of taxes and ended up getting back what he thought he was going to have to pay. This man was almost in tears, he was so happy. That's the best kind of payment as far as I'm concerned.
That is so nice! I had no idea the people who worked for VITA were all volunteers.
Here is a card I did for the FEB. 15th challenge. It is an anniversary card.
My stamping buddy is here today and we are doing the challenges on SCS. I am helping her upload cards. She has not done that or challenges, so is learning. She is joining our thread, as she needs all the help she can get to get her cards done every month! LOL She makes really great cards, just helping her with getting them uploaded and navigating SCS.
I am reading to her as I type!
Stiz2003 just told me about this challenge. So, I'm excited and this is my first submission. I'm not sure if it's appropriate to call "encouragement" an occasion...but I do know that we all need encouragement during many times; job changes, loss of family member, divorce, even just trying to loss weight can test our patience and stamina. (It was only by God's help that I succeeded in my own weight loss and exercise goals last year.) So on those "occasions" I like to send spiritual greetings...so we don't forget we have help. (smiles)
So glad to have you here Audrie...and I so agree...we really are nothing without Gods love...and I think encouragement is one of the best reasons to send a card...why wait until a tragic event to lift someone up.....
I hate it when I let cards pile up, then have to photo, edit and upload a whole bunch at once. Sorry about the long list, but you can see that I've been busy. These will all be used for the Card Ministry. I have two more birthday cards that I need to get out by the end of this week, then I'll be done for February (except for my CCC13 cards).
I didn't realize until looking at some else's cards that this card kind of fits the AOCC13D challenge. The buffalo is cut out with my Cameo. The sentiment and arrowheads used the print and cut feature of the Cameo. So I guess there are 3 different cutouts. If it doesn't show up right away, it's because I had to edit the keywords.
I made a card for the Mix-Ability challenge that will go into my stash. I think I've sent all the birthday and sympathy cards I need for February using my stash and the cards I posted in the last few days.
This card goes back to the Feb. 1st AOCC13C challenge to use up scraps and pieces on hand. I have a lot of stamped and/or colored pieces, many ready to just stick on a card. My goal for the year is to make a significant dent in that stash. I used two dies but don't feel it qualifies for the Feb. 15th 'D' challenge as they are the same shape, just two sizes.
I liked it but the only thing that bothered me is that I didn't have the right stamp for it. I used MDS to create the message behind the frame (the digital stamp there is Vintage Verses from Stampin' Up!).
Does anyone have suggestion on stamp sets that express "we'll miss you" or other work related farewells? I like large sentiments with a mixture of fonts so any advice you can share will be appreciated.
Everyone has posted so many beautiful cards! I tried to leave comments.
I had friends over on President's Day and we made five different birthday cards. That was so much fun! No photos, I took them all to work to send to my volunteers!
Otherwise, I've not been very inspired...I think it's all the snow. We got another 8 inches yesterday.

You can keep that snow, Dianne. We've been having some pretty decent weather for February. We still have some snow on the ground from the last big storm we had a few weeks ago. Lots of ice, too. I haven't been doing much stamping lately. Every time I get ready to make some cards, I look at my to-do list and see something I can't put off doing any longer. At least the list is getting a little smaller.
