Today I have a bit of a different post. Veteran's Day is this week and at work we are collecting items to send to the troops overseas. As we were discussing different ideas someone said, why don't we put a personal note in each card? They were thinking we could get the 50 cent Hello cards for the notes. I said I could make them for the group. Well I was thinking maybe 10-15 cards. So I went home that night and mentioned it to my husband. He did not say much. The next morning, I asked how many do we need. The reply was about 50. Oh MY! I thought how am I going to get 50 cards done.
Well, I went simple which is very different for me, as I am used to the stamped images that are colored and a few embellies. I am pleased with the way they turned out. I hope they brighten a military members day when they receive them. My co-workers will put a personal note in each one. It took a total of 3 hours to put these together. My husband even helped stamp the sentiment for each of them. How sweet of him to help!
But please remember, these are nothing compared to the sacrifice that our military makes for us every day. If you see a military member or veteran, please take a moment to thank them for there service.
Thank you to all the wonderful men and women who keep us safe each day. I pray that you will return home safely.
