The last few years I have been making Christmas Cards for the troops, so that they will have cards to send home to family and friends. I have started my challenge of 100 cards for the troops. At least this is my minium but would love to create more than that. The goal for the group of ladies that give my a hand with this is 2000. Here are the first 3 cards of the challenge.
I made this box for Ms. Virginia and it was filled with lots of images for her to color with her Copic Sketch Marker, a lot of colored images for her to use with her cardmaking, and a few handmade cards.
My brother has been having problems with infection in his foot and several times has almost lost his leg, but they have always been able to save it. He is dealing with that again so I thought I would cheer him up with a card and a little something special tucked inside of that card.
My sister, Lizzy gave me a card with a gift certificate to my favorite place, Scrappin Friendzee on the day of my birthday and she kept telling me at work (we work together for though that do not know) that I had to wait until Saturday for the other birthday gift that she made me. On Saturday I was the hostess for the August Meeting at Scrappin Friendzee. Well she surprised me with this paper cake filled with kisses and awesome birthday wishes
and sweet notes from family, and friends. As I read each of the notes she explained to me how she was able to retreive the various notes and how she made the cake. That was just one awesone birthday gift. That day (Saturday) I also received quite a few gift certificate to my favorite place, Scrappin Friendzee with some beautiful handmade cards. On Thursday, Aug 5th the morning after my birthday, my youngest son, Peter surprised me with a beautiful card and a vase full of wildflowers. Just made my day. I also received a few cards and goodies from others. Thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes and gifts.
In the world of scrapbooking I am known by several different names.
Memorycollector is my name for my online group called "The Crop Room".
Paper Piecing Patty is the name that Garnet (MeMe Cat), and the Scrapping Cats started to call me, and everyone at the Scrapbook Cottage.
The Scrappin Packin Mommas, which is a group of 15 ladies in Harvey, Louisiana that meets once a month to scrapbook. Each of the ladies in the group has a momma name, and they named me Momma 411. The name stuck since I am the resourse person of the group.
