Sheetload of Cards Reaches Out



Al is sending out a challenge to SheetLoad readers to "Share a SheetLoad of Cards"!

The purpose of "Readers Reach Out" is to...share your creativity while reaching out with love, purpose and positive energy."

SheetLoad has been blessed the past few months with guest artists, celebrity sketches, awesome celebration sponsors and lots of new readers; so I thought it only right to give back in some way. In April’s issue "Readers Reach Out" was asking for cards that will be donated to the residents of Franciscan Skemp Healthcare / Arcadia Campus Nursing Home in Arcadia, WI.

Here is the challenge to you:
1 - Choose a current or past issue of SheetLoad of Cards and complete a full "sheetload". This is usually 6-9 cards.
2 - The theme of the cards for the issue is: Fall Colors
3- You can make cards for specific occasions (ie: birthdays, anniversaries) or they may be general, all-occasion cards.
Please do not sign the cards, as the residents will be sending the cards and writting messages/signing them.
4 - Download and fill out the "Share a SheetLoad" form, and send it along with your cards to the address shown below.
***Each month they select three (3) reader cards to showcase in the Card magazine, so make sure to include your name and location on the form.
5 - Mail your cards and envelopes to: Mary Lynn Maloney, Readers Reach Out Coordinator, 5091 Bell Street, Port Townsend, WA 98368
Please make sure to include envelopes for each of the cards you send in.
6 - Please make sure the cards arrive by their deadline. May 12, 2008 SheetLoad would really like to keep giving back, so please email sheetload@comcast.net if you have any suggestions as to what group/facility could be the focus of our next "Share a SheetLoad"

If you could also post this on your blog and help spread the word it would be greatly appreciated.

I used the May sketch for my cards.

WISHING EVERYONE A GREAT WEEKEND, CATCH UP WITH YOU ON SUNDAY
