GRAND PRIZE WINNER FOR BEST OF SHOW: Cindy Roland

For some of the children's categories, I enlisted the assistance of my 13 year old daughter! As you can imagine the scans don't do any justice for the artwork, there's lots of embossing, sewing and bling not visible as well as sentiments stamped inside or decorated envelopes! Amazing entries, THANKS for making this contest a huge success.

Prizes have been shipped and received by many already. Thanks again to the sponsors, the prize packages were generous.

**A shout out and BIG THANKS (and RAKS) to: Ramie Ahlstrom, Cynthia Elliot-Park and Ellen Bentley and for sending cards by the masses for the troops. THANKS to everyone for supporting this contest and the troops.

May God Bless America.

Wow!!! What a surprise!! I opened my front door to a HUGE box from Becky Chabot of Keepsake Designs and when I opened it I could hardly believe my eyes!!! I want to thank all of the sponsors who donated all of the lovely gifts and to Becky for hosting and especially our troops to which all of the cards were meant for. This was such an nobel cause and I was thrilled to send as many cards as I had on hand. That was enough for me, the prizes were just an added bonus. Thank you again Becky. God Bless our troops and send them home all safely soon. Sincerely, Cindy Roland
