Operation Write Home - Cards for kids

Hi friends!
This week Lawn Fawn is teaming up with Operation Write Home to make cards for children. Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade cards to deployed service members so they can write home to their families. They need more cards dedicated to children, so go to your craft room and make some for this sweet purpose!

It has to be hard for a kid having a loved one so far so I made this card thinking about bringing a big smile to a little girl's face on her birthday and you know, Lawn Fawn has the perfect stamps for this!! :)

For the sentiment, I stamped it twice, the first one with orange ink and the second one with versamark ink, then I heat embossed it. I love how it looks!

Hop on over to the Lawn Fawn blog to see more cards from the DT members, and check out this post and join the fun, you can win some amazing stuff!

Supply list:
- Lawn Fawn stamps: Critters Ever After, Grand Greetings and Interlocking Backdrops.
- Hero Arts stamps: Cling Dots
- Echo Park paper: Little Girl
- Baker's twine
- May Arts ribbon
- Copics
- Washi tape
