Just one more

I only had time to finish one more card for the OWH Birthday Bash VCMP challenges. This is challenge #15 Splish Splash, which is being hosted by Michelle over on Caffeine and Stamps. The challenge is to make a black and white card with a splash of color. I think I accomplished that with my card. The flower is layered with dimensionals and has a tiny button brad in the center. The sentiment was computer generated.
And this is why I didn't get around to finishing the rest of the challenges. I spent the better part of the day stamping the backs of these cards with the OWH stamp, tucking them in envies, and sorting them into categories which makes it so much easier for my shipper to sort through them! It takes a lot of time to do this, but I can only imagine how overwhelming it is for OWH'S shippers if they have to process all of their received cards like this, and then re-package them for sending to our soldiers! My hat's off to all of you great volunteers who work so tirelessly to place these cards in the hands of our military! Now to print a packing slip, and off she goes!
Have a fabulous day everyone!!

Wow! So many cards. And I can be a witness that you have sent many of the boxes to the soldiers since I saw you do them in person. What a great caring thing that you do, Carol. I hope I can add some to your box next time. Please let me know.
