Cards for Kandahar

Can't think of a better way to spend this Veteran's Day than doing a little holiday card making for soldiers in Kandahar.
Soon, all of this will be turned into unique personal creations for each on the men serving under SGM Danny Allman in Lashkar, Gah.



(I say "unique" because I have quickly learned that card making is NOT my craft, but I am committed to completing this task and they WILL like them dammit!).

Hansel made sure these cards got the perfect snowflake stickers on the inside.



Want to help honor our brave men and women serving overseas?
Check out this site for tips on how you can get involved in sending your holiday cards.
My Twitter friend BlondeByDesign is also putting forth a spectacular effort on her own and is accepting PayPal donations to help with her holiday care packages, if you don't have the time of don't know how to get started. If you're looking to be inspired, take the time to read through the archives and see some of what she's sent to Kandahar so far.



Once the card project is complete, I get to work on my next care package - a snowball fight in a box!
Stay tuned.

Oh my goodness that looks like so much fun! If possible can we use some of your photos in our slideshow? Let me know or just shoot the ones that are ok to use over. How neat to see these works in progress. I can't wait to hear more about a snowball fight in a box. Sounds super interesting! Maybe we can get in on that too.

Awwww, look at that precious little face concentrating on his snowflake art! Honestly, WSM, I find it hard to believe that any craft isn't *your thing*, but I'll take your word on it. What a great thing you're doing and have done. I KNOW the guys are gonna LOVE your snowball fight in the desert! *hugs n love you*
