I recently came across the blog of a talented crafter who participates in Operation Write Home. I had heard about it at one of the scrapbook conventions I attended but didn't know all the details. I wandered over to the website http://operationwritehome.org/. I was instantly touched by what they do. This organization collects homemade cards that are shipped to soldiers so they can keep in touch with family and friends while they are deployed. As they said, there is not a Hallmark store around the corner for them to get cards to send to there loved ones. I was sold. What a great cause to put my creativity to good use. I am a stockpiler, so I always have extra cardmaking supplies. I have challenged myself to make a card for a soldier after I complete a project for myself. I have about 10 so far. Here are a few I made from a kit I bought on clearance at Michaels. Thanks for stopping by.
