I love this cartridge! It's definitely one of my favorites!

Here's a pic of the 600 cards my friends and I made and sent over to the soldiers! We enjoyed making them and can't wait to do it again next year. We also had some elementary school students write and draw in them...which made for the sweetest cards! What some of the adults wrote in them disappointed me because I feel like they could have sounded a bit more appreciative, but the kids' cards made my heart melt. So next year I'm going to ask my former elementary school teachers if they'd be willing to have their students write in them instead!

Thank you to those who are serving/have served or are a family member/friend of someone from our armed forces. You all sacrifice so much for our freedom!



Here are the 6 designs. We made about 100 of each!

Wow, how nice! What a wonderful idea!!
I showed a Veteran I work with your cards and he was very impressed. He said it was always so nice to receive things in the mail when he was at over seas. Youre going to make a lot of people very happy. Great job.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Not only are they pretty, but made for the best of reasons - to lift the spirit of one who often thinks his/her job is the most unappreciated in the world. As the wife of a Navy Vet (20 years), I know how much it means to those serving overseas to get something from home. And an extra bravo to you for involving the kids. They may not understand war, or hardship, or even freedom yet, but they know what it's like to miss Daddy or Mom. Bless you for giving so much of your heart to those who serve.

great job ! The adults who wrote in them would probably have felt differently if they'd lived for a while in some of the foreign countries. What you did is great !!!!!

These are amazing, as the Mom of a soon to be Marine (he leaves the 14th of this month), I really get all teary eyed when I see something like this. Thank you for what you did :)
