My First A Muse.....and Cards For Heros

For my birthday I splurged and bought quite a few A Muse stamps. I fell in love with this little bird and bee. Isn't it cute? I've been busy stamping and coloring images so I can get some cards put together.

I've got some neat cards I'm finishing up and hope to get them posted this week.

Many of you out there may have already heard of the Cards For Heros organization. If you've been a follower of my blog, you know that I have several very dear people in my life who serve in the US Marines. Kevin, my daughter's high school boyfriend is deploying to Iraq sometime in the next few days.

If you have cards sitting around collecting dust, or card fronts you would like to donate, I would love to take them off your hands and send them over to Kevin's unit. Several of my stamping buds and I are getting together to create cards for the troops.

My goal is to send over a box each month, so the troops will have cards to send home to loved ones. I'm going to focus the next couple of weeks on Christmas Cards.

If you'd like to help out... check out the link above. They post weekly on what kinds of cards they are in need of and how many cards they've sent out that week. It's really amazing how much it boosts their morale!

Happy Stamping!
