Welcome to the Mama Elephant/Operation Write Home blog hop! Hopefully, you’ve arrived from Emily Leiphart  and I know you’ve seen some adorable ideas for this charming set along the way! :)



Here’s a word from Mama Elephant:

We’re so excited to be partnering this summer with Operation Write Home - they are a nonprofit that sends beautiful handmade cards to our service members so that they can write home to their families. Isn’t that just the best? There’s no Hallmark store in the desert, so this is a pretty important gift we can give them as crafters!

Our “In My heart” set was inspired by the mission of OWH; we know that many of those serving overseas have little kiddos at home that they write to. So we designed cute little kids and sentiments to express just how much those little folks are missed! The drawings are done in such a way that they can be adapted to different ethnicities too, making this a really flexible set. We’ll be donating 20% of the proceeds of the stamp sets sold on our retail site from now until July 31st – we really want to help them fundraise for all their efforts!

We also know you’ll want to join in on the mission to serve the troops – be sure you visit the OWH website and read all the guidelines carefully….you’ll learn about why glitter is dangerous to send, so leave the stickles behind when making cards for heroes! Lots more information is available on their Welcome page – tons of questions are answered there! And they have a fun YouTube show each weekday with project info, tutorials, and more – check it out HERE.

This is the idea that immediately popped into my head when I first saw this set:


When my own children were little, we would often tell them we loved them “thiiiiiiiiiiis much!!!” and open our arms big and wide for a mondo squishy hug! This little pig-tailed girl reminds me of my own daughter at that age and I thought it would be fun to show her tossing hearts up into the air until they created a ginormous pile of love. :)

Thanks for stopping by here today!

From here, please hop along to Pamela Ho‘s blog for more stampy goodness!
