Crazy4Challenges

Tammy is our hostess for the Crazy4Challenges for the month of October.  Today is World Card Making Day.  Tammy had the idea to challenge us to make cards for OWH, otherwise known as Operation Write Home.  We are going to send our cards to this wonderful organization who sends our handcrafted cards to servicemen and sevicewomen overseas.......with a twist.  They are sent in bundles to posts overseas so that those serving can choose cards to send to family and friends back home.  YOU too can participate in this worthwhile effort.  It goes on year round, so whenever it is a good card making time for you, you can play too.

One thing to keep in mind when making cards for OWH, is to keep them pretty flat for mailing purposes.  For very specific 'rules and regs' go to the Operation Write Home site.

We hope you will play along with us and make the day of someone you may never meet!!!  It will warm you heart, theirs too, AND their family and friends who ultimately will receive the cards.  Check out the fab samples from the Crazies at the Crazies Blog.
