Cards for Heroes

Have you heard of http://www.cardsforheroes.org/ ? I just started doing this card drive last month. I think it's a great cause. You can make a card and send a personal note directly to a member of the Armed Forces, or you can donate a bunch of cards for the troops to use to write home.

Since my daughter was at my mother-in-law's today, I decided to have some fun today and spend an entire afternoon stamping! Yay! Hey Mindy, I made 15 cards for you to send off to the troops!

Here's a picture of the cards I made this month:
