Challenge #82: National Card & Letter Writing Month


Welcome to Cooking With Cricut's weekly challenge!  This week our Design Team was challenged to create a card to send to someone or to create a scrapbook layout featuring a letter -- all in honor of National Card and Letter Writing Month.  

Think back to the last time you wrote an e-mail? Probably today, during work. Or perhaps to let a friend in on plans.  Now think back to the last time you wrote a letter by hand. Was it a week ago? A month ago? A year ago? Maybe earlier than that.

In the whirlwind of texting, tweeting, and e-mail, it is easy to forget how easy and satisfying it is to simply write a handwritten letter to someone. We also forget the joy we feel when receiving such a letter.  So take time, sometime soon (if not this month) and send a card with a handwritten note or a letter to someone you haven't spoken to in ages and catch up; or send a letter to your child, niece, nephew or grandchild -- kids LOVE to get mail.  If you're lucky enough to have grandparents and parents in your life, drop them a note and let them know how much they mean to you.

Here is what our Designers came up with . . . make sure you click on their name to visit their blog and leave them a note -- let them know how much you enjoyed their projects!
