OWH and Lawn Fawn

If anyone were to ask me some of my favorite things in card making, without hesitation I would name these 5;  Operation Write Home, Lawn Fawn stamps, Spellbinders dies, embossing folders, and snowflakes.

This past week was great with 2 of my favorite things, OWH & Lawn Fawn collaborating on their blogs.  It just so happens that I've been finishing up the last few cards for a box to go to OWH and found out that Kelly Marie of Lawn Fawn has issued a challenge to make cards suitable for a child for OWH, so, here's another one I can add to the box.
Front of card.  Sets used: Sweet Christmas, Plus One and Smitty's ABC's, all by Lawn Fawn
 I stamped the sentiment on the top flap instead of the usual bottom so that there will be plenty of room for a short little note for the HERO to send.
Inside of card.  Sets used:  Cozy Christmas, Smitty's ABC's, both by Lawn Fawn
I started a card making ministry at my church back in May.  For the first 2 meetings we just focused on "learning the basics."  At our 2 most recent meetings we have made cards for OWH.  Most of the ladies are total beginners and I don't know who's having more fun, me watching & helping them learn all about this crazily addictive world of card making or them, as they discover all the really fun & cool toys/tools and techniques.   I've often wondered if other people went as crazy as I did when I first got started with this craft and I'm happy and a little relieved to say-YES, they do!  Especially when you have lots of things for them to try out and play with.  
Here are some of the cards for my next box to OWH.  Almost 1/2 of these were done by the ladies in my card making group.
If you have some extra cards laying around, (maybe a stack of past challenge submissions) please consider sending them to OWH.  It's such a worthy cause.  Just be sure to go to the OWH home page and read the guidelines before sending.
Have a great week and remember....

make it a good day for someone else 
& it'll come back to you!
