Cards for Heroes Blog Hop!

Wow! We've made it! Thanks for visiting my stop on the blog hop - it has been a labor of love these past few weeks for the blog hop team, and my love and appreciation goes out to everyone who has helped to make it happen.

If you are in the middle of the hop, click the button below to start at the beginning....

I want to tell you a bit about my involvement with Cards for Heroes. Two years ago, our daughter Victoria was preparing for her Bat Mitzvah (a rite of passage in the Jewish religion). She needed a community service project, and I met someone online who was serving in Iraq that wanted some cards for her unit. We sent some along, and soon after, she was back here in the US - however, I still wanted somewhere to send cards, did some internet sleuthing, and came across....CARDS FOR HEROES!

Earlier this year, the president of Cards for Heroes, Sandy Allnock, announced that she was taking a business trip to New England. I of course wanted to meet up with her, and she came and stayed with our family for the weekend. We had lots of chats, and even some cardmaking AND shopping, and she asked me if I would be willing to come on as a shipper for Cards for Heroes! I have never been more honored in my life - I have been a shipper for 6 months now, and I am just loving every minute of it. I have processed many thousands of cards through my home, and every day brings joy to see what comes in the mail for the day! My husband, Larry, is now on the board of directors. It is truly a family affair!

Enough blathering....I made two cards for the hop - the first is a baseball themed card with some patriotic colors. People always ask what types of cards we are looking for - the main focus for us is getting the heroes cards that they can use to write home on. We can use all types - lovey cards for their wives, cards for their kids, cards they can send home to their parents, etc. Make sure to check out our card garllery on the website here CARD GALLERY to see even more examples of what people have made.



Above is a "patriotic" baseball card. The image is from River City Rubber Works, and the background paper is actually wallpaper samples! LOL! They have an Americana feel, don't you think?

This next card was made with the heroes in mind. A simple "Thank you" for all that they have done for us, to protect our freedoms. The stamp is from Hero Arts and the flowers are from Prima. Both companies are participating in the Blog Hop, be sure to visit their blogs too and thank them for their support!

I am going to write an anyhero letter inside of this card - just a simple note telling someone that I am thinking of him/her, and that I appreciate what they are doing. We include as many of these as we can in each box. Believe it or not, there are heroes who don't get ANY mail when they are serving our country. Consider putting an anyhero letter in with a package of cards sent to Cards for Heroes - it really does make a difference! Another one of our shippers, the fabulous Kris, came up with our current challenge which is called 25+2, check it out here: 25+2



Please be sure to link to the next blog, Deborah! Her use of color is amazing - be sure to check out some of her older posts too!

Finally, I wanted to thank everyone personally for their participation in the bloghop! Please consider sending some cards or a financial donation to one of our three shippers - every card and dollar really does make a difference!

Enjoy your memorial day weekend!

Fabre, I'm so glad I found CFH. I'm going to be doing the 25+2 challenge this summer, but will likely do many more AnyHero Cards. I love the idea of being able to thank those who protect my freedom. Was thrilled to see that pic of Quincy Market... I went to University outside of Boston and that picture brought back some lovely memories!

PaulaM said...

Fabre -
Wow, I finally get to read about YOUR involvement in all of this craziness! In hopping last night after work, I clicked on the 25+2 challenge in someones blog and read about it. I have TONS (okay, maybe 100) cards waiting to be sent out but I have not ever done an any hero card - so this will be my challenge this next week - to get the cards shipped and the +2 added in as well. Blessings BTW - did I ever send you the picture of my friends sil on the USS Bainbridge? If not, let me know and I wll send it on.

Fabre.. God bless you and Sandy for keeping this wonderful project going. The hop, the cards, the service to others is terrific! I'm sitting down now to start my pledge of at least 1 25+2 set to go out by next week. With Summer getting started I'll see if I can get a few others to match that as well. Thanks for how easy you make it for the rest of us to do a bit of good.

Hugs - Jean
