Wow long time no blog!!!

Wow what a whirlwind December was for our family. As many of you know, I am a shipper for central time Cards for Soldiers project so I was very busy leading up to December and was able to ship out 20+ flat rate boxes to our troops. How rewarding this was, but I can tell you I am ready to make something other than Christmas cards which I have been making since July. I am very proud to say my gal pal, Sue and I made 2000 cards for our troops and have decided to make Christmas cards all year long to meet our goal.

Also we lost a very special person in our family unexpectedly right before the holiday, hubby's grandma Carolyn. She had been sick on and off for several years and had been in hospital since Thanksgiving. She was so tired of fighting the good fight and decided it was her time to go and went peacefully with all her chidren present-just the way she wanted it. Well our family took this really hard because hubs was the 1st grandson and my oldest is the 1st grandson, so they were very close to her. She was more of a grandma to my kids than a great-grandma and visited about every 6 weeks although living in Nebraska. Now we all have an Angel looking over us!

So now that things have somewhat settled back into normal as you would say, we are gearing up for 2010 and what it has to bring to us. Although our calendar is filling up fast already between basketball and baseball for both boys!

Happy New Year to you all and be safe!

Cards for Soldiers Challenge with a Prize!!!

Some of you may or may not know that I am a shipper for central time zone for the Cards for Soldiers Project through the Cricut message board. Normally we make cards that are blank inside for the soldiers to use to ship home to their families, but this time we are doing something a little different. Currently we are making "Thank You" cards for the soldiers to show our appreciation for all they are doing daily for us.

So now for the challenge, I would like you to make a thank you card or cards
for our soldiers and ship to me. These can be generic thank you cards or holiday/Christmas thank you cards. I will randomly select from those that send me cards 1 person to win the entire set of the 12 Days of Christmas Snowman new releases from The Stamping Boutique that was graciously donated from Tracey at TSB.

OK to be entered in drawing I need to have your cards by December 1st, please make sure to include envelopes with the card(s) you send. Few helpful tips: please do not use glitter as this can get on the soldiers clothing and be seen with night vision goggles. Also please try to use any bulky embellishments. Other than that show me your cards!

Cards can be sent to me at:
Christy Dillman
610 Prospect
Excelsior Springs, MO 64024

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at, I would love to be able to shower our troops with a lots of love this holiday season!!!
