Cards for a Cause

I recently came across a great idea that was posted by one of the Paper Crafts editors, Brandy, on their blog. You can send cards to those recovering at the Walter Reed Army Medical center. At this time of year, a word of thanks or a happy holiday wish would certainly make a difference in their lives. Even though it's getting close to Christmas I'm going to get a couple of cards in the mail! I'm sure they'd even like New Year's ones. This is definitely an address I'll be saving for holidays later in the year, too.

Here's the address:
We Support You During Your Recovery
c/o American Red Cross
P.O. Box 419
Savage, MD 20763-0419

And Brandy added the following note of interest:
"There are several incorrect addresses for the Walter Reed Army Medical Center floating around, as well as news stories telling people not to send in cards. I called the hospital directly and was informed that sending cards to the American Red Cross address above will guarantee that your cards will be delivered to the soldiers at this hospital."

These are the two cards that I'll be seding over today. This is one of my favorites that I made a while ago. I stamped with paint and then added Hambly transparencies and a BG rubon to the cover.

This one uses one of my favorite Christmas lines, Cosmo Cricket Wonderland.

Finally, here's one of my newest creations. It's for this week's CPS blog. The patterned paper is Paper Trunk, this week's sponsor. Also used some glittered chipboard and some fun silver cord.

That's it for today. I'm off to bake my Christmas cookies and finish wrapping my gifts. Have an awesome day!
