Repeat script does not work

The following script works for finding a checkbox that is checked and putting its custom property (uMyLabel) into the field "recommendations" on the marked card that it is on. However, it fails to put the uMyLabel of another checked checkbox that is on another marked card into the field "recommendations".  What am I missing here!

on mouseUp  
   repeat with y = 1 to the number of cards
      if the mark of card y = true then
         put the number of buttons of card y into nbr
      end if
   end repeat
   repeat with n = 1 to nbr
      if the style of button n is "checkbox" and the hilite of button n is true then
         put the uMyLabel of button n into tName
         put tName & cr after theList
      end if
   end repeat
   delete char -1 of theList
   put theList into field "recommendations"
end mouseUp
