Happy 4th of July!!

I thought I’d share a little project I put together for the CardsForHeroes.org and Richard’s Coffee Shop this Independence Day. I made some cards for the coffee shop to sell and when someone buys them they can write a message to a Hero inside, then I will send them along to CardsForHeroes.org. The coffee shop keeps the proceeds from the cards and the cards get sent overseas to someone who needs a kind word from home. It’s a win-win situation!
This is the box I put together in which to display them – it took longer than I thought it would!

I apologize for the dark photo, but it was about 3am, I was very tired, and the lighting was not that great.
Here are the cards I included:

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday! Fireworks, cookouts, friends….what could be better? Please take a moment during this holiday weekend to remember our troops who are far from home, may they stay safe and come home soon!
