Cards for Heroes Memorial Day Blog Hop!!!


Welcome to your next stop on the Cards for Heroes Memorial Day Blog Hop! So glad you are playing along...if you are visiting my blog and didn't start at the beginning of the hop, please go to Cards for Heroes to start at the TOP of the hop!!! There are goodies up for grabs along the way, so you don't want to miss any of the blogs!

So here's the card that I would like to share with you today...I chose to stick with the patriotic theme of red, white & blue and even threw some stars in! The card I created is a Thank You card:





Supplies used include white card base, PP by The Paper Studio, Fiskars Threading Water border punch (love this punch!), flowers/brad unknown, Thank you stamp by Stampin' Up, tags by Stampin' Up, VersaMagic ink-Night Sky and machine stitching.





I am new to Cards for Heroes, but love the idea of it! My father served in the Army, one of my brothers served in the Army and is actually going through the process of re-enlisting, and two of my nephews have served in the fight against terrorism, Chad in the Army and Jay in the Navy. Jay is currently on deployment (miss you Jay, stay safe!!!) I am so very proud of each of them, as well as all of our military as they sacrifice for us! This is just a small & simple gesture of my thanks! I plan to continue making cards and love the idea of AnyHero cards/letters. Won't you help? Plus you get to play with your scrappy supplies AND it's for a good cause! Gotta love that!

And now I get to send you on to your next stop along the hop:


Her name is Brit and she is from Minnesota! & her blog is so FUN! She is super talented and creative! You will love her! & she has started an etsy store!








Again, thanks for stopping by! & thanks to our many HEROES! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Take care!
