Cards for Heroes

A few weeks ago, I read about the Cards for Heroes program from my SBS-8 sister Kim's blog. They're now asking people to make Mother's Day and Father's Day cards to send overseas to the troops for them to send home. I think this is such an incredible program, and with friends and former students serving overseas, I'm just glad to be able to do something, however small. If you send cards by April 11th, you'll be entered in a challenge for blog candy, so check it out here.

Here are a few cards I made for Cards for Heroes today. I kept them simple, as I made a bunch of them, and I wasn't sure how heavily embellished cards would ship. (The Father's Day card is based on a sketch from Technostamper's challenge.)

Please consider making some cards for this program. I know they'll be much appreciated.

Those are awesome cards. Thanks for your support. I can't think of a better reason to spend "even more time" stamping :)

Those are awesome; probably a great idea to keep them simple! Glad you mentioned that because I sometimes get too carried away with "hard-to-mail" embellishments & I just saw this post earlier, so need to get busy & create some cards too!
