This week I was invited to make the sample cards for the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Challenge. The challenge is to make Love cards for the troops to use to send home, for Valentine's Day (deadline is Dec. 31) or for any time of year which is why we prefer "Love" cards to "Happy Valentine's Day" cards.
Your one LOVE card can help in so many ways. This month, Our Daily Bread Designs is sponsoring a month-long challenge to make Valentine's/Love cards. For every 25 cards linked on the challenge blog, ODBD will pay the shipping costs on up to two large boxes of cards to be sent to the troops. We still need a few more people to link their cards to make it to 50 and get that second box of cards paid for! Click here for more details.
Also, until December 10, Archway Cookies and OWH have partnered up again to send Archway's delicious cookies to our deployed troops for every Valentine's/Love card received by our shippers. The goal is 5,000 cards which means 5,000 packages of cookies for our troops. Come on now, who doesn't love a cookie while they are writing a card to the ones they love?! Click here for more details.
So, what are you waiting for? Start making those Love cards and share your creations at the OWH Stars and Stamps blog!
