World Card Making Day

WORLD CARD MAKING DAY is this Saturday!!!!!!!! And guess what??? We have something fun planned for you!!

Here at CompuPro Scrapbooking, on October 4th, 2008 you are invited to come together to celebrate this holiday with us for a 9 cards in 9 hours “Write to the Troops” crop!! Starting at 9am (Atlantic Standard Time) and continuing each hour there after until 5pm, our talented design team together with a few guests will be posting a unique card and the step by step instructions to go along with it so you can create the card yourself. A challenge or two may be thrown in there every now and then too!!

We chose a “Write to the Troops” theme for our World Card Making Day crop because there are many soldiers overseas serving our country at this very moment. Regardless of what we think about the conflicts going on around the world, we agree that our soldiers are brave, honorable, and deserve our support!!

So we would like you to share the joy of a creating some handmade cards with us on October 4th and pay it forward afterwards by writing a little message inside and sending them on to a soldier (or two or 3.) Just one or two cards is all it would take to make one day out of their deployment a little bit brighter and more meaningful. Please let them know you are thinking about them, supporting their strength and admiring their courage. If you have happen to complete ALL 9 cards and maybe even more, it would be a nice sentiment to send them along too. The soldiers can definitely use them to keep in touch with family and friends back home.

If you do not personally know of a troop serving overseas, here is a link for you to send mail to “Any Canadian Forces Member" For those of you local to the Oromocto area, the Military Family Resource Center accepts card donations and ensures thier delivery!
It's located at:A-45 St. Lawrence Ave.Oromocto, NBE2V 4J5phone: 506-422-2000 (ext.3352)On that same note, I am sure that any of you close to a military base would have a Resouce Center that will accept your card donations.

If you are in the US, here is a link for “Cards for Heroes” where you can donate your card (s)!

****Please post the links to your card (s) in this thread by Monday, October 20th to be eligible for a prize.
On Tuesday October, 21st we will draw 2 random names from all the participants and they will win a small RAK put together by Nicole and the DT.We hope to see you Saturday!!!!!!
