What cards do you use for Hug Day? Valentine Day ones? Or are you making your own with a card program? Just wondering how it worked before I signed up. Oops sorry didn't read the other posts first... missed the deadline. I'll keep an eye out for the next one... LOL

You might still be able to sign up the list just went out. Send a PM to lovemitty or #1AndOnly they were the host of this swap. For my cards I am making my own from American greetings.com. I have a membership with them.....good luck hope you can join

Yeah we are still taking names I am doing a blank notecard and just adding some quotes and whatever message was included. I know others have printed off graphics to use or made their own cards ... it's pretty open I believe there will be a Valentines Day swap so I wouldn't use those cards.

This is for anyone that might of got my guy Chad Guerra @ CCI Tehachapi. I had this gut feeling all day so I finally check the inmate locator and he has been moved. So if you sent him a Hug card it probably will get returned to you. Sorry I do not need and details on his address and I just found ot like 5 mins ago and now I have to wait for his letter telling me that he moved.
