The first five...

For three consecutive years, I was given a challenge by a fellow crafter to join her in making five Christmas cards each month for Operation Write Home.  This year, she hasn't extended that challenge.  I'm assuming it is because the need for cards has diminished for OWH and she isn't doing it again.  But that's OKAY fellow crafters because I am extending that challenge to YOU... only it'll be a little different.

The CHALLENGE, should you chose to accept it, is to make five Christmas cards a month for your personal stash, another organization OR Operation Write Home.

 There are two reasons why I have loved doing this...
  1. I would have a stash to send to OWH for both the early call in July and last call in October.
  2. This gave me an opportunity to "try out" several different designs before choosing which one would be our own personal Christmas card.
For me personally, the second reason is the main reason I do this.  When I married the Ernman in 2013, we decided we would start sending Christmas cards out as a couple.  Both of us had stopped doing it years before.  
Having something to send to Operation Write Home is just an added bonus... 
SO, who's with me?


  1. You're on Sistah! This is an adorable design too. You will keep reminding me, though, right? oxox

    1. Me? Be a nag? Remind you each month? Oh HELL yeah! :)

  2. Your ornament cards are delightful. I just can't bring myself to commit to doing your challenge even though I said I was going to. The thought of doing it makes me cringe.
