call out for valentines

I used Stamping 411's sketch this week to make some valentine cards with my retired stash of papers.  Gretchen Barron issued this challenge, to donate valentine cards to from Our Hearts organization.  She is even offering a prize drawing if you can make 5 valentines and send by December 20th.  If you never heard them- it is a great organization that Martie Shea has run out of her house for the past few years.  They send cards over to the troops for them to use for their personal use to send home to family and friends.  We all have cards we make or swaps that can be put to good use.  They are also moving to a new location, bigger space and are in the need of cash donations for office supplies and to help cover the postage to send overseas.

So in the spirit of Christmas send out some valentines to show you care.  Such and easy and small thing to do that will mean so much to those who serve our country everyday.
