Operation Write Home

This weekend,  I am getting together with the awesome ladies from my bible study to make cards for Operation Write Home.  Most of the ladies say they aren't crafty, so I created some sample cards for inspiration.

A card; 2 bags; an index card, um, thing; some inspiration; and an idea

I made the follow card and bag for a friend from work.  She has been my mentor since April of last year.  I recently accepted a new position, so this is just a little thank for you all that she has done....

This bag is for me, I think.... It's the same pattern as the one above.  I got this in a kit at a quilt shop in Cannon Beach, Or.  It's the Amy Butler drawstring bag.

I made this for my "secret" pal at bible study- Jill again this week.  :)  There is a brad in the corner to hold index cards for bible verses and other inspiration.

I found these paper clips at Michael's this weekend and fell in love...  I have some images of what I would like to do with them, but we'll see how they actually turn out.

Lastly- I found this website today:
If you make cards, will you consider sending some for this great cause?  I don't know about you, but I feel pretty good when I get a handmade card from someone...  Wouldn't it be great if the loved ones of the brave men and women serving our country could feel that too?
