Here is a few answers to recent questions.

Any Greeting , notes of cheer , poetry cards are great! they do not have to be Pressed Flower .
All cards need spiritjump.org wrote on the back of card or on envelope . This is the Org that got this together .
I will check each and add if needed.
Do I write something on the inside? And if yes, what would you suggest that I write? yes  , please write a little something to make a Smile ! an inspiring message , a personal note , I used my poem I wrote a while back . I have it posted on Facebook with the message about wanting to be a Successful person. I have some ideas on the blog too.
Do I sign my name? Yes and where you are from would be nice. put your web or blog on there too if you like.Do I understand correctly that I put each of them them into envelopes and then do not seal them or write anything on the envelope? the envelopes are optional , but do not seal because I have to check and they said the Center likes to check too! Mainly just to make sure there is nothing that should not be there!?
You may write on the outside of the envelope if you like ! It is not necessary though.
Maybe "TO A WARRIOR !"  or " Have a Great Day" etc
OR if it is specially for a Child , girl ,boy , man etc.

They are  only asking that they are NOT Get Well cards ;-( !
They do not have to be in an envelope . I had a bunch of envelopes donated to me from the PTO thrift store too . so I can put cards in envis if needed too.
