AnyHero Cardmaking Party: Sponsored by Eat Cake Graphics!

We do remember why our heroes fight. Many of them stepped up in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy - and so many more since then. Honor one today by making a card and write a note in it....scribe a poem, draw a picture, include a family photo. Send it to Operation Write Home, and make the day of a hero far from home!

Challenge: An AnyHero card
Make an AnyHero card - any theme, as long as it's appropriate to send to a deployed hero! It also does *not* have to be patriotic; you can make a Christmas card, or thinking of you, or a general themed thankyou card. Kids can draw or color pictures, and if you feel like writing but the cardmaking is not going well - just write a letter on a piece of paper. Our heroes just want to know someone at home is thinking of them, and that is something easy for us all to do!

Here's a sample card, made with "For the Brave" from Eat Cake Graphics...along with the letter written inside. Yes, you can put your address and/or email inside!

Eat Cake Graphics is offering a little extra incentive for you to participate in this challenge: they're giving away THREE of these cute stamps called "For the Brave"!

We'll draw randomly from all participants at the end of the month, along with the other goodies offered on the OWH blogs...good luck!
