Cards for Heroes




I had such warm fuzzies after putting together this box full of cards. Sending 200 handmade cards was my "pipe dream", so when the total came to 317 , I was thrilled. If you're not familiar with Operation Write Home, an organization that collects blank greeting cards for soldiers to send back to their friends and family, check out their website at http://www.operationwritehome.org/. This was so much fun. I couldn't stop making cards! Even though the event I held at the library wasn't well attended, people really came through with donations. There were 10 of us who pulled out all the stops and created the contents of this box. Wowza!!!! Thanks, Ladies!!!! A special shout out to Mary, who helped me sort and label them. Whew - that took a really long time. I was really happy with the way some of my cards came out, so I took pictures. I was going to post them here, but have decided to put them into an album instead. Stay tuned!
