I buy all my cards at the after Christmas sales. I keep them tucked away and then get to pull them out for this! I can't wait to start working on them! DSS loves to put he glitter in them.

Happy Donkey Day

Is this a "food" holiday or one of those "florist" holidays? I was just wondering...

The signups will close this Friday Nov. 8. DS typically has the list posted by the end of the signup weekend. So you will have from about Nov 11 until whenever you need to ship your package of all cards to Texas so that is arrives by Dec 5.

But I wish I had done the form. How funny would that be to put "glitter" on the customs form as the contents of that envelope?? What would the recipient's carrier think when delivering that one??

Thank you for that information. I've just signed up to send cards to servicemen and women for the holidays-I was thinking of adding glitter. I'll need to fill out a form.

Kajem, that might depend on *how much* glitter you put in the card. The postal worker I handed my card to knew immediately that it was more than just a card in that envelope that barely sealed because it was bulging so! And the fact that it kinda crunched when she palpated it with her fingers to try to figure out what might be in there before saying that it was obviously not "card only" as I had written on it.

T/j: That's such a nice thing for you to do! I've sent cards, letters and packages to our military for many years. Much needed, much appreciated and very rewarding for the sender too.

I hope it's not inappropriate here in F&G for me to say that this was one thing that helped me get through the days following DDay. I joined a group adoption of 28 Marines and had just sent a whole bunch of pkgs of things, including lots of home baked goods a week or so earlier. For several days following DDay, my email inbox was full of heartfelt messages of appreciation from my adoptees! I sat and cried, reading and rereading them. Totally wonderful feeling to get that email love! End t/j and I apologize if I'm out of line.

Finally10 and I managed to choose cards that don't have much of a front cover to fold up, but they were so sparkly and shiny that we were distracted---I'm apologizing in advance for the mess which will certainly arrive within the envelopes.
I'm excited to get to participate!!
