Sending Loving Thoughts

Pin It
You may have noticed that a new gadget was added
to the sidebar to keep count of the number of
handcrafted cards made for charity.
The two primary charities to which cards are donated are
Send Love Today
Operation Write Home.

Through Send Love Today each crafter is paired with
an individual fighting brain cancer and cards are sent
every week over a two month period.  A new pair is
assigned every two months.  It's a great way
to help directly influence someone's day.

Through Operation Write Home cards are sent in bulk
to a handler who sorts and organizes the cards and
then forwards them to active military personnel so that
our heroes can stay in touch with loved ones at home.

As you can see I'm about one-fourth of the way
to meeting my goal for the year.  I'm always
looking for sources of inspiration. 
CR84FN Color Challenge always provides a
source of color inspiration.

This week's color challenge: to use the colors
kraft, green and brown.

Here's what I came up with.

This card is similar to one I made last week (here),
but how different it looks with these colors.

I made another with less detail for Send Love Today.

Please consider joining one or both of these organizations, and put a smile on someone's face!
