No count yet but it is going to be good I think :). A BIG package from Debbie showed up in my mail this evening. I cannot open it and get distracted. I have some things to finish for the bazaar this weekend and it is already after 8 pm. I am expecting two other packages :). Awesome ladies.

It has been my pleasure and I think I am the lucky one to get to see all of these wonderful cards. I have Carla's now and they are beautiful. Opening that big box from Debbie tomorrow :).

We sold more than last year so I was pleased. We had a good time too. We only do one event a year so you would think I would not wait until the last minute to get things completed - LOL. Getting to see all of the cards has been REALLY great!!!!!

Hee-hee.. I say that every time I make myself crazy being last-minute, Karen... And you can guess how that goes... I've come to terms with it's how I operate. :( :)

I got a fat envelope of cards today from Marilyn. They are all super, super, super! Now I have to get to work and get them all ready to mail :). Good thing they are going to such a wonderful group of men and women who serve this nation daily or it would be all I could do to part with them all.

The cards are all stamped, in their envelopes and sorted by category. Almost finished with the Blog post. Have to find a mailing box on Friday so these lovely beauties are on the way early next week.

You are amazing Karen! You'll also have to give us some tips on the cards that we could do to make your job easier if we do this again in the future. I know I'm game. Thank you for all you have done, it's just phenomenal. Linda

It has been my absolute pleasure. My Dad is retired Air Force, my husband retired Army and I am a retired Army civilian. I know first hand how a simple handwritten note can mean the world to someone. I signed up recently to get notified when the OWH Blog is updated and the posts from those using and receiving the cards are awesome.

Linda that is great idea . If we don't do this as a Scrap Girls effort I plan to continue with you and a bunch of others. Happy Thanksgiving ladies.
