We searched not only for old one, new one, home made or hand made but also modern designed greeting cards who could be sent by mobile phone or email. We searched for them between acquaintance, friends and relatives. The guiding thought, the message that we were looking for, was peace and love. Over 500 pieces not only from Primorska area but also further, were received most of them made by hand in different techniques and different materials. Most of the collected works were children's works
