my cards for Heroes Card Drive!!!

Hi guys!!!
I'm so excited about this Heroes Card Drive at Lawnscaping challenge by Laurel Beard that I couldn't wait to create 10 new cards with my new lawn fawn stamps to send to the troops overseas =)
I know I'm Canadian but I feel really strongly about supporting those brave individuals who are risking their lives to protect so many others =)
So go through your stash and send some to Laurel =)

here's a photo of the cards I made with Lawn fawn stamps: 
Bake me a cake & my silly valentine

Heroes Card Drive!!!

Hi everyone!!!
I just wanted to share with you a post from Laurel Beard from Lawnscaping Challenge:
I'm participating in this Heroes Card Drive and I hope you all would too =)
here's what Laurel said:

Hello there!  Welcome to the Heroes Card Drive!

This drive has been months in the making, and we are so excited to bring it to you at last, because it's a cause that's very near and dear to our hearts, and affects at least one of us here at Lawnscaping in a very personal way. 

You may or may not be aware that our sweet Laurel's husband Christian has left just this week on deployment with the U.S. Navy. We wanted to do something similar to Operation Write Home, but specifically for the courageous men and women who work and serve along side Christian on his ship. Those who have each other's backs and are keeping each other safe while they are away from their families.

We would so love for you to get involved. 

We are looking for quality, handmade cards FOR OUR TROOPS TO SEND to their loved ones. Out on the field, many of our soldiers do not have the opportunity to purchase a card to send for their child's birthday or simply to tell their significant other that they love them and are thinking about them. We want to provide them this service.

For the safety and to meet the desires of our troops, we have a few simple guidelines that we would ask you would adhere to:
  • NO STORE BOUGHT CARDS. Cards must be handmade. Use quality products that won't fall off in extreme temperatures. A good quality adhesive is a must. These cards have a long way to travel and once they arrive, they will likely be cherished and kept and perhaps even saved in scrapbooks or collections. Send your best, because our troops and their families deserve nothing less. Make sure that your card will stand the test of time. 
  • ABSOLUTELY NO GLITTER! This is a serious one. Glitter that has flaked off on a soldier's uniform can become a real threat to their lives, as it makes them visible to night-vision goggles. And as anyone who has ever worked with glitter knows, the stuff just gets everywhere. ;o) The last thing we would ever want to do is put one of these brave men and women in harm's way. Glitter glues that do not flake off such as stickles or glitter pens such as Sakura StarDust Jelly Rolls or Copic Atyou Spicas are acceptable.
  •  KEEP IT RELATIVELY FLAT. Some dimension is okay, such as lifting images up with pop dots or adding twine or ribbon, but try to save the buttons and other large, bulky embellishments for other projects. We want to make sure these cards make it through the postal system and arrive at their intended destination in one piece.
  • LEAVE THE INSIDE BLANK. We don't want to use up any space that our heroes could potentially use to write their own personal message to their loved ones. In fact, if you use a dark cardstock for your card base that makes it difficult for someone to write legibly on, we ask that you would line the inside with a white or light colored cardstock so that the recipient has no trouble whatsoever discerning their soldier's words.
  • DO NOT SEAL THE ENVELOPE. We want the troops to be able to open it right up, personalize it and send it to their loved ones. For this purpose, please include one blank envelope with each card INSIDE the envelope you mail them in.
Send cards to: 
Laurel Beard
P. O. Box 15198
Jacksonville, FL 32239

Card themes that the troops have expressed a desire to receive:
  • Birthday
  • Love
  • Thank You
  • Missing You
  • Thinking of You
  • Blank (no sentiment)

Undesired themes:
  • Wish You Were Here
  • Party Invitations
  • Baby/Bridal Announcement
  • To Mommy/Daddy
  • Retirement/other rare themes

We hope that you will all be excited as we are to help out with this incredibly worthy cause. We will begin collecting cards immediately  up through the end of July.

Thank you so much! We appreciate your generosity and can't wait to watch your beautiful cards start rolling in so we can ship them off to our well-deserving heroes!

Please spread the word about this drive. Post this link on all social networking devices. Grab the badge and post it on your blogs linking back to this post!!!! WE WOULD SO GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!!!!!!

Lawn Fawn Haul

HI everyone!!!
sorry but I just had to post this...
I have this new clear stamp obsession!!!
I just ordered like 1/2 a dozen lawn fawn stamps from Scrapyland!!!
(I love this store! they have the cheapest prices in all of North America... and I'm pretty frugal; so I always shop @ Dan's Store... <-  the owner's name)

Oh! & Kelly Marie is the owner and designer and everything in between for the Lawn Fawn Stamps and I love her little cute cuddly creations! her drawings/stamps are so ADORABLE!!!
You guys can find her @ Lawn Fawn blog! ALSO her how to videos are so helpful!

here's a blurry photo I took with my blackberry... but I just have to show you all =)
I send all my orders to my parent's house because they have a larger mail box compared to my condo... so I took this photo on my mom's kitchen-glass dish holder hehehehe

now my collection includes (some are in the photo; some are my older sets):
- (I really want to get the critters in the forest, critters down under, make lemonade, happy summer, plus one & on the mend... but that will have to wait because I spent too much $$$ with this haul LOL & shipping to Western Canada is not cheap either... oy!)
