Operation Write Home Shipment

Hi Friends!
I finally finished all my Operation Write Home cards. I have them all packed up and ready to ship out. I will take them to the Post office on the way to the doctor's office. My husband has an appointment with the Oncologist today. He is hoping to get the feeding tube removed. He has been doing so well he really doesn't need it anymore. So, we will see what the Doc says.

I made lots of Mother's Day card, b-days, and general. The deadline for Mother's Day in March 31. I am so happy I got my cards done in plenty of time before the deadline. I shot lots of pictures so you could see how busy I was this weekend! This batch will go out with the bird cards I posted last week. I have a total of 42 cards that are going out. Here are the ones I finished last night. I made nine cards using this Humming Bird stamp from Stampin' Up. Sentiments from Gina K, My Sentiments Exactly, Impression Obsession, and SU

And, here is a cute lighthouse card. I put one of these in the box. This was a card I designed for my Card Ministry. The Lighthouse is from Stampin' Up, birds from Impression Obsession, sentiment from Gina K.

Here is the whole bunch that was finished last night.

And, this is a pic of all the cards that went in the box to ship out today.

Well, I think I'll head over to Facebook and post some of these on the OWH wall.
