Thank you so much for choosing me as your winner. I really didn't send so many cards just for the opportunity of winning but that is just a wonderful bonus. I'm so glad I could contribute to the impressive amount of cards you received. Now I need to take time to go thru the rest of my cards for From Our Heart and get those out. I've been looking at their website and I'm so impressed with their commitment and all the wonderful people who are helping. I want to be one too. Thanks again, Gretchen, for giving me a reason to take that first step and for choosing me as your winner.

Congratulations, Sheila!!! Your cards are beautiful. We are glad you took that first step. I can't wait to see them and all the REST!!! And to you, Gretchen, my hats off to you! What a wonderful birthday gift you have given to our troops!

Wonderful, Gretchen! I love your birthday idea - and it obviously touched the hearts of many. Thank you so much for your dedication to our men and women in the military. I have a Cards for the Troops event on June 26th and the goal is 500 cards. We'll have some to send, as you have done, from card fronts. The ones we make will be to welcome home some of the returning troops, especially the Single Soldiers (all branches). 18,000 coming home through our local base, so our cards will be just a drop in the bucket. Thanks again for all you are doing.

WTG on all the cards for our troops. Love your cards as usual.

What a wonderful thing you have done. These cards really do make a positive difference! sherrill graff istmpnv@aol.com

oh yeah, hope your birthday was a GREAT ONE!

Wanda J.

Great work, Gretchen! And, I think your postal deliverer deserves a card too (Thank you!), or some other special paper treat! :-D

This is incredible Gretchen! Your description of outgrowing the first box you set aside to hold the cards in reminded me of when I first started stamping and thought that I would keep everything in just a medium-sized Rubbermaid container! HA!

Seriously though, this is a WONDERFUL thing and I know that the troops who get these cards will be blessed along with their families. We ALL have lots of cards in our "stash" and this is a terrific way to make good use of them! Thank YOU for your giving spirit!
