play along to send your cards to the featured cause for the month. We always
take cards no matter if you play along in the challenge or not.



This months challenge is to be inspired by FIRETRUCKS.  Let’s show some Fire Family Foundation that
we appreciate the firefighters and all who volunteer and donate to help
them. 




Thank you for all you do!!

The formatting hurts my brain, lol!  But I was able to read enough to know how to proceed for February.  Let's hope the formatting is fixed soon!

It appears that formatting is still an issue.  I even tried to send the cause info by PM and the formatting issue is there too.  So if anyone needs me to I can email it to them.  Just email me at [email protected] and I will be happy to send it via email.  Thanks!

I only have one little fire truck stamp so I decided to use it on the back of the cards I'll be sending.

Thanks!  This cause is near and dear to my heart since I have a BIL, 3 nephews and a cousin who are all fire fighters.  I need to get crafting so I can send some cards to this organization.
