Operation Write Home Cardmaking Day - Oct. 24, 2010

It was our 5th Operation Write Home Cardmaking Day at Elk Grove Grocery Outlet Community Room. Although it was rainy day, we have made it.  Kathy, Jordan, Karen, Allison, Janet Q., Donna A., Carole M., Caro Lou and myself made 104 cards today and wrote 7 of Hero mails.  Thanks to ladies and gentleman!   It was a very thankful day.  I could tell that everyone was there for making cards for our heroes from the heart. What a privilege that we have!

This is a box of cards that will be sent to Sandy tomorrow.  I included all the cards that I made since last month and Hero mails, too.  They are checked one by one, stamped or labeled the Operation Write Home logo on the back of cards, and tucked them into envelopes.  I have a separate package for Dixie as I promised that I will send her some Hero mails.

These are cards that Jordan, 4th Grade, made today.  We went to JoAnn store to get some supplies and he picked up some stickers and made two cards out of them.  He even inked the edges with sponge. And he cut, punched out and made a snowman card by himself (with a little bit of Caro Lou's coach!  She is so sweet.).  I think Jordan can enter the JoAnn's contest with one of his cards. 

This is a coloring page that I made with the digital image from Designed 2 Delights by Faith.  Allison, 3rd Grade, colored it and wrote her message to a hero.  How cute it is! 

Thanks for stopping by!
