OWH Fundraiser

  Operation Write Home is a not-for-profit organization that collects and sends handmade greeting cards to American soldiers for their use in keeping touch with their families back home. They need to raise $13,000 to cover holiday shipping costs.

Among other fundraisers going on at the same time, K 'n K Designs will be selling 7 new digi sets designed exclusively for this cause. These include 4 sets by Katlyn and 3 sets by Deedee Anderson. Each "set" includes an image and some greetings, in both Jpeg an PNG file formats, all in a zip file.
I'm using a set by Deedee Anderson called Snow Thankful.

These sets are available for just $2 each, or in various value bundles (e.g. get them all for just $10!), with all proceeds (minus Paypal fees) donated to Operation Write Home.

The sets can be purchased at the K 'n K blog (NOT their store) from October 17th thru noon November 1st.
The blog is here: http://knkdesignsblog.blogspot.com/ All purchases will be emailed out within 24 hours of payment clearance.

 Those who don't craft but would still like to aid the cause can donate directly to OWH. Info on how to do that is at this page: http://operationwritehome.org/donate.html

If you are making a card, please read the guidelines. I have a large bow on my card which is probably not appropriate but can be easily removed before mailing.

Recipe:
Stamps: K 'n K Designs (digi image by Deedee Anderson) Snow Thankful
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Me & My Big Ideas dp (no name), Stampin'Up! Not Quite Navy
Accessories: ribbon FX red/white stripe, Copics

What a cute, perfectly colored snowman image, and I used him on my card today too! It's great to see cards like this going to OWH, because they're such a caring organization. I already sent my card in because the deadline for Christmas cards is the end of October! Time flies when you're having fun :)
