Sorry for the lack of posts!

I had some software/driver issues with my computer and had to wipe my hard drive. Of course that puts me WAY behind the curve, and not at a good time.

Today is my daughter's birthday and I've been busy preparing for that. I've been stamping a bit, so hopefully I'll get to share some of that later.

I've also been preparing for the big M-O-V-E. It's just amazing how much work that is.

I hope you're all enjoying a great late autumn where you are! It is still pretty rainy here most days. But the temperatures stay around 80 degrees, so the a/c stays on day and night. It will be a shock for us to return to a full-blown winter in progress with temperatures in the 20's when we hit the mainland! But I'm looking forward to it!

Have a great Aloha Friday!

Thanks for visiting!

Operation Quiet Comfort

Splitcoast Stamper's Cards for a Cause Challenge this month is Operation Quiet Comfort.

EXCELLENT cause! I'm honored to participate again this month.

Here's one of the cards I made for this challenge:

This is a smaller card, about 4"x 4" square, with sort of an unconventional opening... The score is on the left side of the star and opens on the opposite point.

Verve Swirly Stars
Silver Cardstock, unknown; Close To My Heart Black Cardstock
Silver Eyelets, Clear Embossing Powder, Spellbinders Star Nestabilities, Silver Gel Pen

No matter who you voted for yesterday... No matter your political stance... No matter how you feel about the results of the election, locally or nationally... We should always, ALWAYS support our troops (and our Veterans) - at home and at war.

Send a note, a letter, a card. A thank-you. A "we support you." Something.

Let them know we have not forgotten them.

It means so much.

Thanks for visiting!

I also stamped!
But I'll share that with you later, because I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipient. ;)
I hope to post more later today!
