Today's Challenge - Don't let your cards get moldy!

Today I want to pass along the challenge to send a card to somebody.

My husband complains that he never gets "fun mail", but always bills.
Wouldn't it be great to receive a card JUST BECAUSE!

I'm finally getting around to sending some cards off for the Canadian Military to use to send to their loved ones. I was looking through my cards (which weren't all stored properly) and some were wrecked. What a shame to make cards and not share them! My roof actually leaked on some of them and they were ruined (hence the title!) I got a BOX of cards packed up to send off. I'm excited about all the happy families who will be able to receive a card from their military officer.
If you would like to know more about sending cards to support the military here's the link:

If you're anything like me, you have a stack of cards just sitting there.
Today (while the kids are napping and my dishwasher running) I am going to be sending cards to family members and friends JUST BECAUSE to brighten their day and let them know I'm thinking of them. Isn't that what cards are intended for?! So have fun creating (maybe even participating in a challenge) and then SEND it!

Hope you all have fun spreading the love!

You're so right! I was just thinking about this b/c I have boxes of cards from swaps that I've been in over the last EIGHT years and really, how many samples do I need to collect and save? Thanks for the encouragement to go through them, then use them or pass them on! :)

I do the same thing...collecting, that is!! Why do we hold on to our cards? Have we forgotten the reason we make them?? Thanks for your encouragement. I'm going to try to do better in "actually" sending them out!!

You are so right, each card has the power to brighten a persons day, and yet we tend to stash them away where no on can enjoy them. Thank you for the reminder!
