  72. This is a wonderful card. I'm going to participate next year in this hop. I often send my extra cards to OWH, but have never made cards just for them, shame on me. It is a great cause, and I know they are totally appreciated. My brother joined the reserves at age 40, and is in some sort of officers boot camp now.
