It's a birthday celebration for Operation Write Home! Several weeks ago they offered up a little kit for a card making class as a fundraiser. On the blog they are having a FREE card making class that all you need to do is register and you can view the PDFs and videos. There are some great videos on how to color with either colored pencils or Copic markers. If you are so inclined you can also donate to OWH, it takes a lot of money to mail off all the packages to the heroes, so you might want to consider helping them in that way if you don't make cards!
I tried some of Sandy's instructions for colored pencils as I have more luck with those than I do with using the Copics. Another day I'll try those out! The stamps are from My Favorite Things.
