Well, I only have 46 so far but need to make more boy cards. I'm trying really hard to keep them even in the girl/boy dept. Right now I'm filling up a box. When I have that all filled up, I'll ship it out and start another box.

I'm starting on my cards today! I sell cards in two different stores and would love to put my work into something worthwhile and if it only brings one smile to one child it will be worth it.. Can I put a note on my Facebook page to get others to help? I know a few scrapbookers that will definitely be up to the challenge! Thanks so much for all the hard work you must do to get the ball rolling!

Happy New Year everyone! I ended up staying in last night instead of the usual party with the family. Therefore I brought in the new year working on cards for the kiddos. Had to take a break from cards for another project, but so glad to be working on them again. I must agree with Debbie, I too get so sick of looking at my scrap paper and this is a GREAT way to use it up! Makes room for more new paper right? lol. I too am trying to keep the boy and girls even, but I am so limited on boy stuff.

Hi again, just a quick question, what age range are the kids? I'm trying to make sure I'm not making cards too young or old..I have about 60 made and will mail when I hit the 100 mark, as the postage is outrageous from Canada:( so I'm trying to get as many in one shipment as I can!

Good Morning Everyone!

Randasue, how is your father doing?

I just got back from a cruise last night. Getting adjusted to being back lol, but plan on getting more cards done this week. While on the cruise, they had a workshop to make cards, and of course I had to join! Saved them for the kids =) My family got quite a kick out of the fact that we were thousands of miles away from home and I still managed to make some cards!

I hope everyone is doing good so far this year!

hi everyone! thanks to all of you for keeping me posted, and for all the concern shown for my daddy. he is doing about the same, he keeps saying that after 94 comes 95, and he will be 95 in march! he still is confined to bed and that drives him crazy, but he is still in his right mind and knows all of us, so we are pleased with how he is doing.
michelle...the ages of the campers are from 6 - 12.sharon elise... i received your cards today, and they are great! thanks so much!

texlady...i am not sure how many campers there are atr all the camps across the country, but there at least a hundred and something camps. we are one of the largest organizations for camps for battered and abused children. the main website is www.rfkc.org if you want to check it out.
thanks everyone...keep on making those cards!!!
let me know if you need anything.
thanks again for all your concern for my daddy!

hey everybody! sorry i havent been on in a while. my dad is doing pretty good. they finally decided he was well enough to start physical therapy....after 5 months!!! they don't think he will walk, but just trying to get him stonger, and hopefully we can get him out of bed and in a wheelchair. we are all still taking turns staying with him, but i am the only one that works full time, so i can't stay at night during the week, and work the next day. i did it for several months,everyday. then i stay for 24 hours on the weekend. just pray for me and him and all of us!

i haven't done any sb or card making at all since all this happened! am trying to get some things together for cards so when i go to dad's i can work on a few.
thanks to all of you for working on the cards. i am looking forward to seeing all of your great cards.
debbie, i will let you know when i get your cards. i know they will be great!

I finally hit the 50 mark on my cards and hope to get a lot more done. I may try and send out a box soon, depends if I finally make it to the post office to pick up boxes. I HATE going to the post office soo much lol. I will let you know if I send a box.

After listening to everyone here give a count of the number they have made, I counted mine.

101 cards ready to be mailed.

And I have a couple of friends getting together in a couple of weeks for a weekend card making for delivery to Randasue. I am guessing, but I think we are talking about mailing 155 cards by June. I am sure you can find another camp that could use them. if you have to many

I probably won't get more made before the deadline. I have been overwhelmed with things around here. My husband had a lung collapse, and was in the icu for 10 days. He is home now, and doing ok but I have so much more to do now until he's allowed to go back to work. (we run a janitorial business together).I hope my 100 I sent will be enough to get you thru with all the others making just as many or more. Next year I hope to do it again and can start this summer when things calm down a bit!

Thanks everyone, my husband is doing great, we both have quit smoking as a result of his lung collapse so we are both feeling the usual withdrawal symptoms. Lol. But with the money we'll save maybe the card making budget can increase! Scrapbooking stores, watch out! Lol Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers, we appreciate it!

Mine just went postal today. I managed to get 43 cards made. I really had hoped to help you more than that. I will definitely try for more next year.

Mine are in the mail today. I realized I left out the note that said who they were from. They are in a white hallmark envelope that has a dog sticker on the back flap. Sorry about that... but I know they are going to a great cause. This is my 2nd batch for the year.

Randasue,

I've been looking and looking on the general page for this!

My 4H club had a late start this year so we didn't make any cards but I had a girl scout at church make a bunch of cards of a service project for you! There's probably 150 cards for you.

Is it too late to mail them to you?

Julie

Randa Sue.. you should have mine now. I, too, tried to make more with a "boy" theme this time around. Used Dinosaurs, tents, fishing themes.

I know its pushing it but mine should go out tomorrow. It will be priority from PA so you may get them in time. If not, I'm sure you'll just save them for next year which is fine.

I just had another box go out today, priority mail, so you should have it in 2-3 days.

Tried to mail it on Saturday. Got to the P.O. at 10:59, lights were off. At some point, they changed their Sat. hours from 11:45 to 11:00. So they didn't go out until this a.m.

I am so sorry, I totally lost track of this! I do have some cards made, but didn't make as many as I had planned, and hadn't even thought about the fact that it was now July! Would you still like the cards I made for this year?

I added up just the msgs that have the number of cards mailed. You should have over 2,000 cards this year. I know you will pass what you can onto some other camp.

yes, i did receive yours in time. i did get some right up to the deadline, so they were used at camp too.

i must say that i am very sorry that i didnt' get on here toward the last few weeks to let you all know that i received them, and that the camp went well.
the week after the camp was my pageant that i was the director of. it is for special needs teens and adults, male and female, so that has kept me tied up till just a few days ago, tying up the loose ends. it went really well too.

thanks again for all the cards.. we did have over 2000 cards, and believe it or not, they were all used up! we had 66 campers this year, so the campers each received about 30 or so cards. we have a lady whose job it is to make sure every camper gets cards everyday, and logs in for each camper, that way no one gets left out, and they all receieve about the same.

thanks for once again blessing these kids and making them smile..knowing that people who don't even know them, care enough to take the time to make them a card.

you are all awesome!

i will be posting a new thread soon to start for next year!

THanks and God bless you all!

Randasue: I am so glad everything went well at camp this yr. How did you find time to hand out all those cards in just 7 days of camp. The lady in charge must have had a full time job just tracking cards.

I will definitely be creating and donating for 2013. I have purchased supplies this summer that have your kids in mind. Frogs, lions, zebras, lizards, alligators, etc. I will put them in a special box and mail them off in the fall. I think I got 3 batches off to you for this year and I at least want to match that amount for next year. I didn't keep track of the exact number. Thank you for organizing such an important collection of cards.

I had planned to do many cards this year, and I, too, loaded up on things like zoo animals, ice cream stickers, etc. But I only got a dozen or so done and sent off. So I will try to do better for 2013. I am going to start right away and use the special supplies!
