This year the expo is collecting cards for Operation Write Home. This is an organization that provides donated handmade cards to military bases all over the world. The cards are available at no cost for the soldiers to send home! The expo's blog (HERE) said some specific themes were needed: "Thinking of You", "Just Because", "Love", and "Teenage Birthday".
So far I have "Thinking of You":
The cards need to be mostly flat, so no bulky embellishments. My "Thinking of You" card has some dots of pearl paint at the center of the flower, and my "Love" card has some black embossing.
If anyone out there is going to the Scrapbook Expo in Utah this weekend, BRING SOME CARDS!!! This is a really worthy cause! And who doesn't love an excuse to paper craft?
