#Cards4Love: Give Back This Christmas in July Season + GIVEAWAY!

Hey, everyone!

Today, I am so excited to share with you a special project I have been working on recently. The #Cards4Love project is a fantastic way for crafters to give back! Many crafters have been involved in this project, and I am going to share with you links to the projects they have created, as well as some information on how YOU can get involved, too!

#Cards4Love encourages you to make Christmas cards to send to the troops of the U.S. Army and to the kids at the St. Jude Research hospital. To participate, I encourage you to make cards or card kits.

For the troops, there are no restrictions on the embellishments you can use. A2 of A7 sized cards would be wonderful! Please avoid using any political jokes on the cards. You are welcome to write a message inside!

The kids LOVE making their own cards! A great way to participate in this project is to send them card kits that they can use to assemble their own cards. Card kits can be for Christmas cards, thank you cards, or cards for any other occasion. Make sure you include envelopes so that they can send/give out their cards. Please package the kits together in a sealed ziploc bag or other kind of sealable package. If you would like to make a card to send to the children, they would love to recieve a Christmas card, too!

To submit your card, you can send them in a mailing envelope or box to the following address:
Crafts by Two
Attn: Cards4Love
640 North Greece Road
PO Box 182
North Greece, NY 14515-9800

Please include your name and mailing address within your package/envelope in order to receive a submission credit for the GIVEAWAY! All submissions need to be mailed in no later than August 31st, 2015 in order to be included in the drawing for the prize pack. The winner will be announced on September 5th, 2015.

The Givaway Prize Pack includes many wonderful items, including paper pads, stamps, embellishments, & more! Be sure to visit on September 5th to see if you are the lucky winner!

Below, I will provide a link to all of the wonderful crafters who have made Christmas in July #Cards4Love possible. I especially want to thank MayMay of MayMayMadeIt for inviting me to the project and George & Ken of Crafts by Two for doing such a great job organizing the project. Everyone who has participated has done such an amazing job with their projects, and I can't wait for you to see what they have to offer! I hope you are inspired to get in the holiday season a little early to benefit some very special people.
