Mail It Monday: 2 card drives


Have you sent any happy mail lately? Today is Mail It Monday and your reminder to drop some love in the mail today. If you are looking for places to send your cards, check out these two incredible card drives happening right now.


Designer Dawn McVey has been an active part of the paper crafting industry for nearly a decade. Not only has she played an important role within the Papertrey community, she has always been a ray of sunshine to others through blogging and social media. Many of you are familiar with the personal health struggles she has had over the past few years, and might have seen the recent news that she is now a proud small intestine transplant survivor. 
The community thought there would be no better way to honor Dawn and support her during her journey to recovery than to make a colorful, vibrant presentation of get well soon greetings. Dawn has always brought color and joy into our lives, and now we are able to do the same for her.
So here's to Dawn. May she find the strength on the hardest days. May she have peace through the recovery process. May she feel the love shining down on her from around the world.
If you would like to mail your creation to Dawn, you may use the address below.

The other card drive is for a 9 year-old boy who will not live to see another Christmas. His greatest wish is to receive Christmas cards. His family is pushing up their holiday celebration for him. He loves penguins, so if you can use those on a card, it would be even more special. The news article about Jacob can be found HERE.

Sincerely Yours,






P.S. Thank you for all your sweet messages. My surgery went well. I am now home resting and recuperating. It will be about 2 weeks worth. I might go crazy. :D However, I will remain thankful for a smooth procedure, for my husband and son who have taken such good care of me, and for my fantastic friends who have been spoiling me rotten and helping out. So much to be thankful for!
