Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to use to send home. So far, they've mailed over half a million cards, and are still going strong!
Hero Arts is hosting a Virtual Cardmaking Party in conjunction with Operation Write Home's 3rd Birthday Bash. How would you like to join a weekend of festivities and create cards for a great cause? Starting today through Sunday, September 12th in the Hero Arts Flickr discussion group, you can join several cardmaking challenges.
Our former Hero Hostess group is hosting a challenge to use a die or punch anywhere on your card. My card uses a label die from Stampin' Up! and the small butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.
You don't have to use Hero Arts stamps to participate. We just want our Flickr group to create and donate 500 handmade cards to Operation Write Home. You're invited to participate in any/all challenges by creating and uploading your cards to the Flickr group throughout the weekend.
ALL participants who submit or tag cards and send them into Operation Write Home will be entered to win some fabulous giveaways, too. There will be more details on that during the party so please join us at the Hero Arts Flickr group and be a part of this worthwhile cause!
