Thankful Thursday: April 29, 2010

Happy Thursday! Are you thankful that National Scrapbooking Day is coming this Saturday? Are you making plans to do any crafting? (And who's rebelling by making cards instead of scrapping? LOL!)

This photo came from Pam R in Florence KY - "Last week I participated in a shoe box swap and we asked the attendees to bring cards, paper, embellishments, etc they might like to donate to your organization.  Let me tell you, I was blown away by the donations!  over 250 cards from 16 WONDERFUL ladies! As soon as I get the stamp on the back and packed up, I will be mailing these to you!"
