Stampin' Up Night (Cards for the Troops)

The monthly meeting of the Stampin' Up card making club I belong to was held yesterday evening. Four of us attended. Instead of learning a new technique or working with a new stamp set we made Christmas cards to send to troops who are recovering from injuries. We worked in an assembly line to put together 20 cards. The inside was sponged with red and green, stamped with a verse and signed. The envelopes were decorated as well. We had a lot of fun chatting and catching up as we worked. Plenty of snacks were eaten and sweet drank. Can't beat a good, cold glass of sweet tea.

After we finished the cards we played a game I had never heard of: One Hundred. It was simple, quick, and fun. To play 100 you need a die, a pencil and each person needs a piece of paper. Each person rolls the die and the one with the highest number rolls again. this is "THE NUMBER." You take turns rolling the die and when a person rolls "THE NUMBER" she grabs the pencil and starts writing numbers from one on up while the others continue to roll the die. You must write fast because as soon as one of the others roll "THE NUMBER" they will grab the pencil from you and begin writing. Continue in this fashion, don't slow down on rolling the die. The first person who writes all the numbers from 1 to 100 wins.

What a great thing for your group to do. I'll bet the troups will really appreciate the cards.
