Challenge: With Love from the Homefront!

What could be better than doing a good deed — and getting a treat for yourself? Cards For Heroes is offering up its first challenge with a prize!

The Challenge:Make cards for our nation’s heroes!

Like this! Or the ones at the bottom o f the post
(but this one is already promised to a Marine having a birthday overseas)

Themes:Thinking of you/hello/generic; St Patrick’s Day; Easter; love/miss you (no Valentines, please); happy birthday. You may also send patriotic, get-well, or thank-you cards to be sent to injured heroes through Operation Quiet Comfort. Please feel free to check out our FAQ if you need more information. From all entries (see below), a name will be drawn on February 2 using for the grand prize after we compile all the entries.

How to Enter:
One entry for each card mailed in to any of the shippers by Jan. 31, 2008! Packages must say “With Love from the Homefront” on them to qualify so we know you’re entering. Please include your email address inside the package.

One entry for each blog post you put up on your site about this challenge and linking to it to help us get the word out! (You can either post about the challenge OR post your entry cards and link to this post.) Please post a link on this thread so we can all visit your blog and count it in the entries! Feel free to download the banner above to use!

One entry for each comment you make on either of our blogs (Homefront or Hero Blogs). Note that just a drive-by “hi” doesn’t count - we want to know what you think of the site and the content! Especially tell us what you’d like to see more, and what here inspires you to make more cards!

The Prize: Ya gotta go here to see what's in the prize!!!

These are the first two cards I'm going to send! If you make some cards, link back here so I can see them!! Just think of all the sketch challenges you already do - just do them in patriotic colors with sentiments based on the above! Or for St. Patty's Day, etc!
