Card Challenge Tuesday

Welcome to another Bo Bunny Card Challenge Tuesday!!  Today we are going to do something special and fun with this challenge. We are doing a  blog swap/hop with Operation Write Home and we'd love to have as many of you as possible play along with this challenge.  Not only is it a great way to thank our troops for everything they are doing but it will be fun and rewarding too! You will need a little information before you begin this challenge.

Here's the scoop from Operation Write Home.
Any theme is fine. The main requirement is to stay away from glitter. It's a safety hazard on the battlefield (night vision goggles can see glitter.) We don't want to put our troops in any more danger than they are already in so please visit this link for guidelines before creating your card. http://www.operationwritehome.org/guidelines.html 

After creating your cards we would love to have you send them to Operation Write Home.  If you are not familiar with Operation Write Home here is a little explanation of what this fabulous organization does.
Please go to this link to get the correct address to send your cards in. http://operationwritehome.org/mailroom.html 

Operation Write Home Mission:
Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
This merry band of thousands of cardmakers is made up of Americans - and citizens of other nations too - who care about our military, and want to support them through creativity and encouragement. Crafters of all ages and levels of experience have participated since 2007...and are on the way to a landmark one MILLION cards!
Care packages filled with hundreds of handmade cards are sent to our contacts, restocking every 6-8 weeks, and are sent in time for the long journey back home to loved ones. Each box is packed with great care, alternating styles, colors, and cardmakers from all over the USA, creating "eye candy" for heroes who see only khaki around them. The topper on each box is a plastic bag filled with 20-30 letters from adults and children across the country, letters handed out especially to those in need of a positive word from the homefront.
Boxes are shipped through every week of the year, so join us anytime in sending your beautiful creations to help our heroes keep in touch with home!

Now for the rest of the card Challenge, create a card using this fun sketch provided by our sweet designer Romy!  It's so darned cute and it will be hard not to play along with this one! You will love what our fabulous design team did with this sketch!
