I recently organized a stamping activity for our local Girl Scout Council. More than 50 girls, ages 5 to 18, made close to 150 cards that will be donated to the Navy, nursing homes, and a local organization that works with new mothers.
The girls did an awesome job and it was nice to see them helping each other.
Below are some of the cards they made.
In addition to making the cards, the girls also wrote notes to include in some of the cards. The notes to the sailors were especially touching. I am sure they will be greatly appreciated by the recipients.
Although it was a lot of work getting everything prepared for this event - it was very rewarding being part of this great project. My favorite comment came from one of the moms when she told me she didn't realize the girls would be making "professional" cards!
CONTACT ME if you would like me to organize a similar event for your group!
Each month I give my stampers "homework" as a way to keep them stamping between our monthly meetings. This month's cards were made using the leftover pieces from making THIS CARD in September. I thought this was a tough assignment, but my club members are very talented a few were up to the challenge! Please vote for your favorite by leaving a comment at the end of this post. As always, the winner will receive a prize.

Isn't this koala cute?! For some reason, I kept calling him a panda when we were making this card at my October stamp club meetings. This is another quick and easy card to make - and I used another stamp from my pile of sets that have not been inked up yet! I told my club members I was NOT going to buy another stamp set until all the ones I already bought have been used.
We used the Smokey Slate Blendabilities to color the panda koala. I am loving those markers!
