This week the Cowgirls are promoting a card drive for Operation Write Home, who package up greetings cards for servicemen/women overseas to send back to their families and friends, and we would love it if as many of you as possible could join us in helping them stock up on Christmas/Holiday cards this week.
We are being sponsored by Whiff of Joy and Whimsy Stamps, and we will be having a 1st and 2nd prize, as well as a Top 6, for this very special challenge.
In addition to the challenge prizes, we are asking people to promote our card drive by posting this badge
on their blog and sidebar, then linking back to the challenge blog. Any one who would like to help us this way will be entered into a draw for a seperate prize, by way of a thank you :D
The image I have used on my card is "Deer" from CJ's collection at Cowgirls-Up Designs . You will notice that I haven't used any glitter on my card. This is because modern glitters are very reflective, which means if a soldier gets any on him/her they are visible with night vision glasses, and therefore a target. Difficult though it may be, please do not use any glitter on your cards!!(more info here) There is an address on the Cowgirls Challenge blog that you can mail your finished cards to(as many as you would like to make, I will certainly be making more!!). They will then be passed on to OWH where they will be packaged to be sent to the overseas troops.
All Politics aside, these people are far from their families, and is a nice feeling to think we can help them keep in touch :)
Thank you for your time, and I hope you can help us to help them XXX
