Create, Donate and Win!

Once again, Provo Craft has donated a Cricut machine to our Mania card drive! And this year, they have donated a brand new Cricut Explore! How exciting is that? All you have to do for a chance to win the Explore is to create 10 cards, donate them to the Mania card drive and you get one ticket in the drawing for a chance to win the Explore! And, you can make as many cards as you want! The more you create and donate, the more chances you will have to win!

In the past, we have donated cards to Operation Write Home. However, OWH is requesting fewer cards at this time as the number of deployed troops are decreasing. So for the September 2014 Mania card drive, we will be donating the cards to children's foundations and hospitals! So think fun, cheery and geared toward kids for your card designs. And don't worry if you've already made or started making cards for OWH. You can still donate those and we'll send them on to OWH.

This card drive is open to everyone whether you're attending Mania or not! If you are attending Mania, you can bring your cards with you or make them while you are there. If you aren't attending Mania, you can mail your cards to me. Just send me a message {scrapalette} and I'll give you the mailing address.

The drawing for the Explore will be on the last day on Mania, Sept 28. Cards that are mailed in need to be received by Sept 25.

And if you haven't heard of the Cricut Explore {where have you been. . .it's the hottest cutter out there right now}, check out for all the amazing features of the newest Cricut machine!

Thanks in advance to all those who create and donate cards! And special thanks to Provo Craft for supporting Mania and donating the Explore!
