I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday weekend.  Our morning Chat group, that is sponsored by Donna at Butternut Sage Designs, has a new challenge from our fearless leader.  Donna challenged us to make a red, white and blue card.  I struggled with this card because it has a special destination and I wanted to make it perfect.  Ideally, I would have loved to have some military stamps.  You see this card is destined for Afghanistan.  Capt. Mazzella is a graduate of Warwick High School, where my kids have gone and still attend.  I noticed on the school website that they were collecting items for the soldiers because their barracks, which included all their belongings was blown up in a raid.  Fortunately no one was hurt, however, they lost everything.  I work in a small office which totals 7 people.  Four of the group are technicians that work in the field.  Some have been in the military or have children serving.  They opened their hearts and wallets for these young men.  Because I have 4 large boxes of supplies to send over from all of us.  We want to thank all of these men (there were no women in this group) for all they are doing for our country and let them know they are in our prayers everyday.
