One of my goals for the New Year was to find a couple of charities that use homemade cards and make cards for them. I was originally thinking about a local hospice care center or some thing similiar. I had heard about Operation Write Home several years ago, but forgot about them. I ran across their site right after Christmas and I just knew this was the first place I wanted to send cards. I am a very proud American and I am extremly grateful to our military for all that they do to serve and protect this country.
IF YOU KNOW OF ANY GREAT CHARITIES, LOOKING FOR CARDS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
I am getting ready to send some cards to Operation Write Home this week. I want to have a batch ready by the end of the month. I decided to make some patriotic cards for the AnyHero Mail. I am going to have 10 - 15 cards for the AnyHero program and 30 - 50 cards for the Write Home program. One of the first stamps I thought of was 'Birthday Cup Mouse' by Meljen's Designs. I don't know why but it has always been a patriotic digital stamp to me. I have used it several time and I am sure it will be pulled out again.
I have six of these cut out and ready to color. I am going to keep one for my files, one to a very dear friend for his birthday and the other 4 will go in my stack of AnyHero cards.
I am also going to use this card for three challenges. The first is Meljen's Design's Bulleye challenge. Everything was suppose to be centers. I think I did ok on that. Then the second one is the Sketch Saturday challenge. The sketch was a simple one and it worked good with this digital stamp. At lastly, Tuesday Throwdown's challenge is stripes this week.
It has been a slow process but I am trying to get back into the swing of things. And that means more challenges. See you again soon. Have a great evening.
