Operation Write Home week! day 2

We have a fun contest going on this week, so get creating and share your gorgeous cards! Check it out here!
______________________________________________________________
Hello, everyone! We are SO excited about this week, and that is because we are teaming up with our friends at Operation Write Home! Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade cards to deployed service members so they can write home to their families. As of March 2012, they've sent 1.7 MILLION cards! How amazing is that?!

This week we are focusing on creating cards for deployed service members to send home to their kids, nieces, nephews, etc. We love the idea of creating cards for kids, and we think Lawn Fawn is perfect for that! :) We are going to have lots of cards to inspire you to create for Operation Write home both here and on the Operation Write Home blog, and we have a fun contest on this post where you can show off your awesome cards!
(using Critters Ever After, Sally's ABCs, Dewey Decimal)
Kim shows us that Critters and some alphabet stamps make perfect kid cards!

(using You've Got Mail, A Birdie Told Me)
Julie's card is so sweet! Adding a cute bird is a great way to make more serious images perfect for kids!

Operation Write Home shared a quote with us that I thought were really powerful and might motivate you to create some cute kids cards!

"Thanks so much from a family of a deployed soldier who has sent us several cards that bear your logo on the back of them.  The cards are always beautiful and I can’t begin to tell you how much we appreciate hearing from Daddy!  Thank you to everyone involved who has been making our year apart from Daddy a little bit brighter.  You all are a blessing to so many!" -S.F., spouse

Make sure to head on over to the Operation Write Home blog for some more inspiration!
Also, we thought it would be fun to have some funny jokes that are perfect for kids with the answers on the other blog! :)
How do you stop a werewolf howling in the back of the car? - Answer on the Operation Write Home blog!
And the answer to their joke: Because he couldn't lie!

 

Thank you so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
