I am sure a great deal of you have already heard about Operation Write Home, their mission is to donate blank handmade cards for deployed heroes to write home on, as well as write letters of gratitude to encourage them.
I figured what better way to spend Memorial Day than to make some cards to send to them.
They prefer A2 size cards with not to many embellishments that can fall off, also no glitter, etc. because of safety concerns. You can read more about what they would like on their web site. They also have sketches for you to use and challenges for you to join in on. A very worthy cause!
I made this little birthday card yesterday to send to them. It was inspired by a design by Kim Hughes that I found in my new Card Creations magazine:
Supplies used: cardstock - cream; patterned papers - Buttercream Bobby, Archie Angel Food, Holly Hazelnut, and Betty Bundt all from Confetti by American Crafts, Scrap from my stash (for cake plate); rub on - American Crafts; buttons, twine - my stash; circle punch - EK Success; ink - Cocoa by ColorBox.
