But the hero this card is going to is the soldier my family and I have adopted in Afghanistan. We send him cards weekly and a package monthly. It is really such a small thing to do, but makes us feel good, and is a great learning experience for our children. He actually sent us an email thanking us with a picture of his family, it was wonderful for our children to see him, it really gave them a sense of who was receiving the packages and cards we are mailing. Put a face with his name.
This has been my "go to" set for his cards. It is a newer set from Verve called American Hero. I was mainly doing red, white and blue cards, but after seeing the samples on the Verve Project Parade, I was inspired to change it up a bit. I used Wednesday's SCS sketch challenge (SC291) for the layout.
I hope he will enjoy this card and know how much his service means to us. Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
