Memorial Day Bloghop!

Hello! Welcome to the CardsforHeroes.org Bloghop! If you'd like to start at the beginning, click HERE.  There are some great and talented card makers participating-- I encourage you to visit as many as you can!


Here are a few of my creations... once I got started, I couldn't stop:) I really do appreciate all of the sacrifices that our soldiers are making for my children and our country. I feel like it is a honor to be able to make cards for these men and women. 


If you don't have the time to join the blog hop today, at least click here to learn a bit about Cards for Heroes and their current challenge for card makers! I hope that you too will be inspired to contribute some of your talents! 


Thanks for stopping by! Happy Memorial Day!
Windy

Products: patterned paper (My Mind's Eye), stamps (Anna Griffin); sketches: Clean & Simple (top) & got sketch? (bottom)
