Last time I talked to Diane, she wanted the mailed after Sept 1st, to be received by October 1st.

BJBooth - how wonderful of you to do this! I think that you should be able to get them to Diane in time. I hope you have as much fun doing this as I have.

I found a stash of Christmas paper, so I am making more up this weekend, and I'll send them on Tuesday.

Happy Stamping Ladies!

Default Happily giving you an update

Diane Armstrong just sent me an update on how the project is coming, and asked me to update all of you. The numbers are climbing! From her note, you can see that she has set a final cut off date of October 3rd. Mine went in the mail to her yesterday. I sure enjoyed making them in the 4 x 6 format. And once I figured out that I could make 8 out of 1 piece of 12 x 12, mounting that on 4 x 6 cardstock, it went faster. I just picked up some clearance Christmas background from my LSS. Then I added a stamped image as a focal point, and a greeting along the bottom, and I was done. Next year I am going to print the message, signature and "to any Canadian soldier" on plain paper and adhere that to the back of my piece (I think) Then all I have to do is sign it.

Anyway, just another Thank You to everyone who has participated. I will update when I hear more from Dianne.



Hi All!
The Postcards for the Canadian Troops are really starting to roll in, and I'm still getting telephone calls and emails of inquiry! Here is an update on the numbers of Postcards For the Troops received so far:
BC - 111

AB - 74
SK - 81
MB - 0
ON - 1159

QC - 13
NS - 0
NB - 0
NL - 0
PE - 0
California - 11

Total received - 1,449

If you have your cards ready, please mail, Express Post or Fedex them ASAP. You have just 9 (NINE)Business Days to get your cards to me. They MUST be here by October 3/06.
Thank you all for this wonderful response. Our soldiers appreciate your kind thoughts and greetings.

Default Final Numbers and updates!

I just received this link from Diane. It is a newspaper story about Diane and the project. Pay close attention to the numbers - We did good!

I would love to have a picture. I would proudly add it to my 'special card scrapbook' where I have 'scrapped' the postcards I did last year.

Regarding blank cards for Canadian soldiers to use:

I may be way too late for this thread, but here goes-

Two military wives in Shilo, Manitoba have started a campaign. I recently discovered it and will be participating. The website is acardforhome.com. They have contact e-mails, how to design a card and even how to organize a "cardaganza".

If there's anybody in the Edmonton, Alberta area that would like to contribute, let me know. I am helping to organize a box to be sent to them.

Thanks.

I'm planning on sending the box when it's full, I guess. I don't think they were specific in the website as to when they wanted the cards; I think it's an ongoing thing. I will continue to send to them as long as I receive cards, too.

Hello all,

I am well on my way to collecting blank cards to send to our Canadian soldiers. I am inviting any or all Canadian SCS'ers to contribute 1, 2, 5 or 10 (or more?) cards to our military. Please reply to this post and I will send you my address. I will collect until the box is full, send it off to Manitoba, then start another box - in other words - keep them coming.

Get the word out to all of your friends.

Thanks for helping out!

Carolyn,

What a great idea!! I just contributed a bunch, and so am building up more and can maybe give some later. I just wanted to suggest you starting your own thread. I think that with your message being on the third page of this one, people might not notice it and may not read this far to find it.

Good luck and thank you for all your hard work!!

Thanks for your suggestion - it's done and can be found in "Canadian military need our support" in case you're interested in looking there.

Have a great weekend.
