Operation Write Home: Love Challenge

Today is Operation Write Home Project Day!

. Kassidy from Inking It Up Crazy paired up with We R Memory Keepers to make and send cards to the troops that they can write on and send home.

Today there will be all different challenges and giveaways at Inking Up Crazy and the best part is that all the cards are going to be sent to the troops to use to send home!

For my challenge, I was asked to make a LOVE card. This wouldn't normally be a challenge for me because I love cutesy love cards. But I thought a lot about what a soldier would want a card to say that they sent home to family and this is what I came up with...

Card 1:

I love this sentiment it says Love You To My Core and it is from Paper Smooches stamps. I thought I would use it on both cards to emphasize how much love one person could feel for another.

Give a Hoot (earth cut out) Cricut Cartridge, Brown Recollections Cardstock, Paper Smooches sentiment, Stampin Up Chocolate Chip Ink, Martha Stewarts Bakers Twine, Cosmo Cricket Togetherness Paper, Paper Accents Tag, White Gel Pen, Misc Cardstock.

This card doesn't have the amount of embellishment that I normally put on my cards but I do think it turned out really well.

Card 2:

I love how this card turned out also. Not too cutesy to send home but it strikes a chord to whoever is receiving it.

Give A Hoot Cricut Cartridge, Togetherness Paper from Cosmo Cricket, Recollections Brown Cardstock, White Gel Pen, Paper Smooches sentiment stamp, Martha Stewart Bakers Twine, Stampin Up Chocolate Chip Ink Pad.

I hope you enjoyed my two cards that I am sending in. I think this is a great project to participate and I hope that whoever ends up receiving these card truly enjoys them!

You can participate too! Please visit Inking it Up Crazy to read the rules and see all the challenges! I am hoping to make as many projects as I can while my kids are running around!

Love Holly
