Thanking Our Soldiers

Today is my day to host a Falliday Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. If you haven’t checked out the challenges going on you should. Lots of fun and some of the challenges (including this one) are for card drives to special places. You can see my challenge HERE.

Today’s drive benefits Operation Quiet Comfort – an amazing organization whose sole purpose is to provide love and gratitude for ill and injured members of our military.

From their website:

Operation Quiet Comfort exists solely for the purpose of honoring and comforting America’s military men and women who become sick and injured while serving in harm’s way. We also provide support to those who care for them.

For this card drive, you are asked to send blank, patriotic thank you cards with NO GLITTER and NO ENVELOPES.

This card destination has approved year round donations, and so they will remain in our Cards for a Cause forum as an ongoing recipient.

Please send cards to:

Diane Schneider
12 Wave Lane
Carolina Shores, NC 28467

I used acrylic paint to make my background (the stripes and then I splattered) and then added a die cut phrase (from Lawn Fawn). I finished my card by making accent stripes with 1/16″ gold metallic tape. Patriotic Thanks Jeanne_Streiff
