What does 200 cards look like?

This is what it looks like!! But, why 200 cards, you ask? They are for a children's charity here in Charlotte, North Carolina called Birthday Blessings. They provide birthday presents and classroom parties for poor and/or homeless children in our area. Dawn and I wanted to make a few cards, so we proposed that our stamp club make our monthly swap cards for this worthy cause. Well, 200 cards later, here they are. We also raised some money to sponsor one classroom party. Many times there weren't cards to give, so instead of not including one with a gift, we have taken the financial burden off a bit, and we are giving each child a handmade birthday card! For more information on how to donate cards, please see this thread on Splitcoaststampers, where other SCSers have donated cards as well!
