Operation Write Home

I love to make cards, but I find that I can't just sit down and create a card, without someone in mind. I find this super frustrating sometimes, because I want to make a card, but just can't think of anything to make one for. Until recently, when I heard about Operation Write Home, (on Katie Piotrowski's blog) and I knew that I had to participate.

OWH sends hand made cards to our deployed troops so they can send them to their loved ones back home! I am so excited to have such a special reason to make cards! Now, I could go on and on about what a great idea this is, and what kind of cards they need and all that fabulousness, but they've said it so wonderfully on their Welcome Page and Guidelines Page, so I will leave all the explaining up to them!

I already started making some cards for them. I started with a "love" card, because who doesn't like to be told that they are loved? I decided to make eight cards based off of one layout for now. I've never tried to make duplicate cards before, so this was really fun for me! And here they are! (Sorry about the lighting, we still need to buy one more lamp in the living room!)

I'm going to make more cards this week, and as I make them, I'll post them here, and Friday or Saturday, I'll head on down to the post office to ship them out!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Katie, these are ADORABLE! I have a hard time making cards without someone in mind too. Sometimes...I fake it! I'll pretend it's for someone, when it's really not! Don't tell!
