Operation Write Home

I'm trying hard to get back into the groove of crafting!! I don't know how everyone else does having a full-time job and having time to craft on a regular basis! I want to be on a roll, especially with the holidays sneaking up on us!! Has everyone heard of Operation Write Home? Well if you haven't, please check out the site! To make a long story short, it is a place to send handmade cards which are then shipped to deployed military and they use those cards to send to their family! I thought this would be a good chance to do a good deed! :) The deadline for Christmas cards is Oct. 30 and my goal is to make 20 cards. (at the minimum) Here is my first card...

I followed the sketch for the challenge at Inspirational Card Sketches I hope I can make my goal!
Thanks for your sweet comments! Yay tomorrow is Thursday already! Got to watch the finale of America's Got Talent...sad the Prince didn't win but Michael Grimm is a great singer!
