Do you like to make cards? Do you LOVE to make cards?
Last week I became aware of something that has gotten me soooo excited! I really love to make cards, but I'm the type that needs a reason/purpose to make them. I'm not real crazy about entering challenges, so that doesn't motivate me, but now I have found my "purpose". Some of you are probably already aware of Operation Write Home (I'm always one of the last to know things.) For those of you like me who haven't heard of it: OWH is an organization that collects handmade cards to send to our troops so they in turn can use them to write their loved ones back home. You can make cards for the soldiers as well. One of the most touching things I read about this is that any card you make has the potential to be a treasured keepsake for someone, maybe for years to come. Everyone who has had someone far away from you can relate to this. Especially with today's emails & Skype, a card with your loved one's own handwriting that can be looked at & held close to the heart is something special.
