This month's Share a SheetLoad is CardsforHeros.org. I get a little choked up just thinking about it as my brother is in the Air Force. Even though he is not deployed, and even when he is he's never close to the action, I am always teary eyed. My prayers go out to our service men & women! This is a great way for us crafters to give a little love to them. The purpose of Cards for Heroes is to... "Help a hero keep in touch with home" Cardsforheroes.org provides handmade cards for deployed service-men and -women to write home on, and as well supplies cards for other organizations who support wounded warriors with care packages.The organization receives cards from across the United States and beyond. As of May 5, 2008 they have provided 23, 108 cards to the troops. One lucky crafter will even be featured at CardsforHeros.org website!!! Please visit SheetLoad for the details!

So over at Papertrey Ink (you know my new favorite stamp company) is having a contest for their forum members. I am about 99% sure I won't win but I entered anyway. They want to know your favorite memory of your mom. Here's my entry. My favorite memory of my mom was from a Spring Break trip when I was about 12. My mom's friend, her son, my brother, me and my mom all piled in the car for a "day trip" to the Sand Dunes in south west Colorado. We were going to go sledding on the sand dunes. When we arrived, to our dismay, the sand dunes were drench in water from a night fall of rain; so no sledding for us. My mom and her friend were not to be defeated and whipped out the map to see what was close by for us to do, because after all it was Spring Break! They decided on Taos, New Mexico. We went to see the pueblo's and the different artist's galleries at the pueblo. After that we had dinner. By this time the kids were exhausted. I told my mom we should just stay the night and drive home tomorrow. She responded with, "Well then it wouldn't be a day trip!" So we drove home. I'll never forget our Spring Break adventures. Thanks MOM!

So what do you think of my new header? This is my first attempt at using digital elements and I think I did not too bad. It really helped that the elements I found at Shabby Princess were so easy to use. I think I prefer paper and scissors, but I may dabble a little more into the digital realm.
Ok.... so I'm a few days late, but I can't help it. It was my birthday over the weekend, which in my book is just like a national holiday! :)
Go check it out! There are great new features in this month's issue. (Just click on the image below to go to the SheetLoad website to download the May issue.)
