This month let's focus on shapes...include a circle or swirl on your card. Be sure to use the keyword C4AC so that we can check out your card and comment! To see this gallery C4AC click here.

Happy to support this local-ish organization!  I have been lucky to have a little extra crafting time in the last couple weeks, so I have been working ahead and might be ready a little earlier than usual for this month's cause.

You are correct - blank cards (or unsigned) so that they can use them for families, etc.    Thanks!!!

Sending my package of 60 cards today, 30 Birthday and 30 Holiday.  I'm rarely done this early, but the preview of upcoming months has been a great help!  Maybe I can start a new trend for myself of sending mid-month instead of on the last day.

Hi Everyone!!  Happy November 1st!  It snowed here today...tis the season I guess.

I wanted to let you know a couple things....

1. The November Cause is posted....If you check out their website be prepared with tissues again...at least I needed them.

2.  Please head over to the August thread - I just posted an email that I received from Lana @ WHEAT and it will certainly touch your hearts!! (Yes, tissues again...)

Thank you for all you do!!!!  I'm continually amazed at your dedication and generosity!!!  Y'all are such amazing people!!!
