Tribute to the Troops

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.

Before I share my project with you today there’s a very important announcement that I need to make.

It’s with heavy heart that I announce that Scrapbooking for Less has permanently suspended their operation for Cards for the Troops effective this year. The organization made their announcement last month as their family struggles through some sort of difficulty.

That was hard news to receive as Cards for the Troops has become my tradition for the last ten years. At this time, I’d like to thank Scrapbooking for Less for their years of dedication to Cards for the Troops and offer them our thoughts and prayers for whatever it is that they’re going through and send them well wishes for a blessed future.

As sad as the news was to receive, there was NO way I was going to give up this tradition that means so much to so many. It was a scramble but I did find another organization with many of the same guidelines as Cards for the Troops had.

In honor of this great tradition, from this day forward, regardless of which organization I design and create them for, they will from this day forward will be referred to as “Tribute to the Troops” instead.

I’m proud to present my specially designed and created for the 2021 Tribute to the Troops project featuring the NEW *Knit Together Bundle and Delivering Cheer Stamp Set* from the July-December Mini Catalog.

Today’s project was totally inspired by a Christmas sweater that my youngest son had when he was about two years old. When I saw the Knit Together Bundle it brought back so many memories!!
