I really enjoy your blog very much.

What kind of white cardstock did you stamp these lovely ornaments on?


Hey Erika, I just joined your cookie group, so definately include me in this campaign!!! Let me know what I need to do next!!! Hugs, Melanie

I love this card! The colors are Fabulous!! Love the bling too

Jodi Galland

I'm signing up now. Any specifics on the cards? All the same? Doesn't matter?

Giant hugs!


Okay, I'm a baker and sometime stamper. I don't know that I'm gonna have time to do 10 cards. It's literally been months since I've stamped, and I've got about 10 sets that still need to be putting together. I've done Rnds 2 and 3, and I like this idea, but I don't know that I'll have time to do 10 cards.

Plus, is the soldier gonna spread these around? What's he/she gonna do w/ 250 cards? Even I don't send that many out during the holidays.

i'm in! i have a suggestion for a soldier for our team. why not contact beate johns and see if her husband could be our soldier or if there's someone else in his battalion who could be our point person. they certainly know what to do with cards! let me know what's next...


I signed on last night. I sent you an email from that blog. Hope you received it. But you had asked for one to left here. So here I am. Anyway, this will be loads of fun. These soldiers are so generous with the service as well as looking out for one another. I have send two boxes of 100 cards over the last two Christmas' (as I will again this year). The cards are needed and wanted. I am very excited in the group effort. Remember everyone, they don't have to be fancy. How about Night of Navy cs with Silver embossed Merry Christmas. Simple, yet elegant. The soldiers also like getting baby wipes and Q tips. I thought, had I been there I would want the sand out of my ears, when I sent them to my brother in law he said he was finally able to clean his gun. Male and female minds, so different.
God Bless

Hi Erika - I believe I am signed up for your group. Please let me know what I need to do next. Thanks for helping me today


I joined your group. I just felt like this was something that I could do to help the folks serving our country.

Hi Erika! I just joined your baking group! This is sooooo cool! My nephew is currently deployed in the Persian Gulf on a carrier. Can't send anything to him on the ship, but at least we can help out where we can! Any specifics on the cards, cookies, etc? Where do we send the baked goodies?


do you still need more team members? I would love to be able to help out!! let me know!


Hi Erika,

I signed up for the team the other day and today I'm finally leaving a note over here. Love the idea of combining this worthwhile project with the cards. Good on ya! :^D
