A Special Cause

 ***I'm unable to visit blogs for now, because my eyes have flared up.  The light from the computer is painful.  I'll be back to visiting as soon as possible. :)***

Hi friends.  I made this card with two digital stamps from a set that is being sold in a fundraiser for Operation Write Home.  Operation Write Home is a not-for-profit organization that collects and sends handmade greeting cards to our nations troops for their use in keeping in touch with their families back home. They need to raise $13,000 to cover holiday shipping costs.   K 'n K Designs will be selling 7 new digi sets designed exclusively for this cause.  Each "set" includes an image and several greetings, in both Jpeg an PNG file formats.  These sets are just $2 each or in various value bundles (e.g. get them all for just $10!).  All proceeds (minus Paypal fees) will be donated to Operation Write Home.  The sets can be purchased at the K 'n K blog (NOT their store) from October 17th thru noon November 1st.  For those who don't use digital stamps, but would still like to help you can donate directly to Operation Write Home here.
Four of the sets are by Katlyn Traxler and three of the sets are by Deedee Anderson.  The set I used for my card is "Thoughtful Teddies" by Deedee Anderson.  I love that sweet teddy sitting there with the dreamy look on her face. :)

Challenges:
The Squirrel and The Fox - One for the Girls
Crafter's Companion - Pink and Green
