Sissy's Scrap Monthly Challenge & Cards For Heroes!!!

All of us at Sissy's Scrap Monthly Challenge Blog are celebrating Christmas in July with Cards for Heroes!!!
This month's challenge is to create Christmas Holiday & Winter Cards& 3-D Holiday Gifts.
This can be an early head start for your very own Christmas cards
AND you can make a few extra to support those who protect our country!

Also, we are excited to announce our sponsor for this month's challenge is:
Stamping Bella has graciously donated a $20.00 gift certificate to their shop!

*Deadline for challenge submissions: 07/31/09.
*Cards being donated must be received no later than 08/03/09 to be sure they get handled timely.

Here are a few ideas for cards to create:
- Secular (snowmen, Santa's, etc with Happy Holiday type messages)
- Religious (Merry Christmas, religious imagery - nativities etc)
- General Winter (love you, miss you, birthday, thinking of you - that have a wintry imagery)
- Special Holiday (specifically Hanukkah!)

***Please keep in mind that our Heroes will be sending cards to Children, Parents, Friends, etc... so you can send a general card with a note of thanks, but be sure to leave most of them blank!***
You can earn entries by:
- Creating a Card and linking back to us.
- Adding an additional post to your blog about Cards For Heroes Christmas in July.
- Mailing us your Cards For Heroes to be donated.

Our goal is: 100 Cards!
