The Canadian Thanksgiving has passed so it's time to be thinking about the Holiday Card Exchange.
I think it would be wonderful to do this again, especially this year. It's always so much fun to get cards from our GRF family!

Cards can be any style you like and anyone interested in exchanging holiday cards can PM me with your
Name
Address
(e-mail)
pet's name
and mailing list you want to join: USA, CANADA, INTERNATIONAL, E-MAIL or ALL.

USA, First-Class Mail® service is an affordable and easy way to send envelopes, stamps cost $0.55

CANADA and or INTERNATIONAL, First-Class Mail International® (FCMI) service is the most affordable way to send letters to more than 190 countries, including Canada and Great Britain. Send 1 oz letters or postcards around the world with one stamp which costs $1.20.

E-Mail only.

Here's a pic of some cards from '17!

Yay!

I took a chance to drag my son out with the dogs to a popular autumn spot here a few weeks ago. We have pictures waiting to be out on cards and sent out.

It has brought so much cheer to our house over the past few years to be a part of this.

I’ll send you a PM.

Yipeeeee! I so look forward to this every year. Been doing it many years now. My Jerry always loved looking at the cards, especially the ones with folks dogs on them. He loved to go to our mailbox at the end of the street and come home with "golden cards" as he called them...and he would open some. I will miss that this year, tho I would not be surprised if he can see them from Heaven.

I am in as always and hope lots of others join in.

Remember, when you sign up and make a choice of USA only, USA, Canada only, Intranational, only, or E-Mail only, or any combination, you send to all in the category you sing up to send cars/e-mails to.

Come on folks! This is LOTS of fun. I have all my cards going back 10 or more years that I got from members here with our exchange. Those of you who have done this knows how much fun it is to open cards with pictures of the doggies on them, or even just a card wishing us Merry Christmas. I still exchange with a few who no longer come here to post. COME ON AND JOIN THE FUN.

HEY! I ordered twenty cards today and don't want any to go to waste. Let's get moving toward at least twenty (If we go over that I'll just order more!).

/This is so much fun and I have done it for years. In this day of friends and family not sending cards lik in the old days (I use to gt around 60 or more at Christmas), it is a treat to go to the mail box and find cars form GRF friends. Come on and join the fun. It is great to display them. I have a card holdr I made 40 yers ago to isplay crds and I put it in my entry hall and anyone coming in sees all the beautiful cars of goldens and comments on it. And when it is full (it holds 20) I tap cards I do gt from family and friends on the frotn door door. Beautiful to look at it. Get in on th fun.

I couldn't agree more! The display of cards brings smiles to everyone who see them!
