Thank you Hero

As usual I was having trouble sleeping last night. Woke up at 230 and thought it was "morning". So I checked email and then went to the dashboard to see if there were any new/interesting challenges posted. Allsorts was as far as I got. The theme is July Love and the requirement is to have a heart predominantly on the card (not just a little one tucked in a corner somewhere).
If you look at my previous post, I have been working on Operation: Write Home cards for the military. (Blank cards since there isn't a Hallmark shop in Baghdad)  OWH also collects "Any Hero" cards - thank you cards with notes & signed - thanking the individual soldier for their service. So above is my entry to the Allsorts Challenge and then I will add my note and it will go in the box as an Any Hero card.

This is a USA project and I realize that Allsorts is visited by people all over the world. Maybe there is a similar program in your country.... or consider asking about starting one. On a smaller scale, see if there is a hospital or nursing home that would like your cards. Just in leftover challenge cards I have 10 or so a week. I've been making some cards specifically for the project and will drop off my 2nd 100 cards since June 1st next week.

Have a good weekend.
