This is a Birthday Card I made last week using my Copic Markers. I am loving these markers!! I just don't have nearly enough time to use them!! I love, love, love the House Mouse stamps...they are sooooo cute!!! Hope you like them too!!!
These are a few of the Ladies who are part of a larger group of Ladies who have been making cards to send to our troops serving in Afghanistan over the past five years. They are (top row) Debra LeBlanc (her son-in-law Jeff was the first military personnel who received our cards), Ruthie Allen-Hamilton, Becky Bullerwell, Sandra MacDonald (her son Caleb has just returned from Afghanistan and her nephew Corey is serving in Afghanistan now), (front row - right to left) Debbie Goodwin, Daisy, myself and Anna Fevens is with us via telephone from Newfoundland. We had gathered for a time of fellowship and to put together a shipment of cards. We have just sent 7 boxes of Christmas Cards to seven soldiers who are connected to our church family this week. In total we have made and shipped over 7,000 cards to minister to our solders and their families. We send a card to each soldier and then a box of cards with envelopes for the soldiers to send greetings back to their family/friends at home. This is not an original idea, but one I found when looking through a card-making magazine several years ago. A lady had started this project in the US for their soldiers and as we had soldiers serving whom we were all connected to, and we love to make cards, we thought we would take on this ministry. Each box of cards is prayed over for the soldier receiving the box and also for the family member or friend who will receive a card. I believe we receive the biggest blessing!! Please keep our soldiers and their families in your prayers. May God bless them and keep them. Amen!!
