Memorial Day Blog Hop

I saw the coolest thing on the web and decided to participate! Its a blog hop to encourage others to send cards to our troops! What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than doing something that benefits those that we are remembering!!!

Hi and Happy Memorial Day! If you have found my blog for the first time and you are hopping around on the Blog Hop, then Hello! If you randomly found yourself here, then you might want to start at the beginning of the Hop, so you can catch all the fun! Just click on the image above to start Hopping at the Top of the Hop.

The Cards for Heroes (http://cardsforheroes.org/) mission is to support our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them throughout their deployment. They are an all-volunteer group of crafters. To date, Cards for Heroes has sent over 140,000 cards to our heroes serving in the Middle East. You can find more information on making and sending cards HERE.


I found this awesome blog hop thru a retweet on Twitter (you can follow me too) and am so glad that I did. I think that no matter what our opinion is on war our troops deserve to know that we care and support them! I was in the Navy (years and years ago) and one of the best things was getting mail. My grandfather was in the Army and he is the military hero that I want to mention. I had originally created this layout for Veterans Day but would like to repost it. My grandpa passed away almost 8 years ago and I still miss him. This layout reflects him, as a man and as a war hero.

Now, your next stop on this awesome blog hop is Kristina's blog. Kristina is a crafter and scrapbooker. Her blog is clean looking and lovely! I love all her flair!!!! CLICK HERE TO GO!!
