PC has, again this year, generously donated an Expression 2 as the prize for the Operation Write Home card drive being held during Circle Mania weekend!!! And, we're opening this to everyone who wants to make cards to donate! Meaning you do not have to be attending Mania to participate! Just make your cards following the OWH guidelines and bring them with you or mail them to me {email or PM me for my address} before April 17. You will receive one ticket per every 5 cards you donate! We will stamp your cards with the OWH stamp {if you don't have access to an OWH stamp} and put your tickets into the drawing. The winner will be drawn on Sunday, April 21.

We know Cricut crafters are very creative and generous people!So create as many cards as you want to increase your chances of winning the prize! Last year, we collected 690 cards. Our goal this year is 1000 cards!

Please include envelopes! And make sure your cards follow the OWH guidelines.

FYI: If you want to print the guidelines for reference, either click on the red box toward the bottom for the 2 page PDF or use this link {if you print from the main page, it apparently prints all 112 comments as well! Scared }:

Thanks for all the interest! I'm really hoping we can reach the 1000 card goal! In response to some questions {that other might have}:

If you have an envelope, include it. But, we will make sure each card has an envelope before it is packed.

You do not need to include an OWH packing slip. We will pack all the cards and put a slip with them. But, please make sure to include your name and how I can contact you should you win the E2!

And, we have several people who are attending Mania that have OWH stamps for the backs of the cards. We will make sure each card is stamped before being tucked in an envelope and packed.

Thanks again and please PM me for any questions! Cool

I have not read the guidelines as I have to be in a meeting in 5 minutes. But, I need to know if the cards have to be done with the cricut. I have a TON of cards from my DT days that I have been looking for a good home for. Would you be interested in those? If so, I will download the PDF to get the send in info.

Thanks!

Wow! I'm sure your design team cards would be very much appreciated by the military personnel that get them to send back home to loved ones!

The cards do not have to be done with a Cricut. Most of the cards we collected last year did have Cricut images on them, but not all did. OWH collects cards from stampers and digital designers and really any one who is willing to make a card and send to them.

The biggest issue for cards that are sent through OWH is glitter because it can been seen with those special night vision goggles and might compromise safety since we all know a little glitter ends up everywhere.

So when you have time, read through the guidelines and send whatever cards you have! thanks so much!

Thanks for responding to my PM yesterday Scrapalette. I'm going to try my hand at the cards. I read the guidelines. The only question that I didn't see answered was whether or not the inside of the card should be blank. I'm assuming that you would not put a sentiment on the inside, but wanted to check just to make sure. Thanks.

You're welcome. I love making cards for people that I know will appreciate them. I also like the little girl although I always have a hard time picking a favorite. Thank you for sending them off to OWH. Hopefully soon I will be able to make more but I have lots to do for my sister's wedding.

Thanks for the bump! I need to update the count since a couple more packages of cards came in over the weekend!

Thanks everyone who is making cards for OWH! There's still time to send them in and have a chance to win the E2!

Lori and Sally ~ your cards arrived today! 50 from Lori and 16 {but I'm rounding up for prize tickets} from Sally. I really love the Mickey one. And all the embossed ones are gorgeous!

And, they're already stamped on the back with OWH and tucked in an envelope! Cool

Thanks for the bump! More cards have come in and I need to add them to the my list and make sure I get the correct number of tickets filled out for them. Then I'll double check where I left off posting and add the latest donations! Flapper
