Memorial Day Blog Hop!!













Cards For Heroes

Blog Hop starts at http://cardsforheroes.org/
(click on the title of post to go there)

Visit all the participating bloggers and leave comments/feedback/praise as you go, so everyone can feel the love! Prizes will be awarded for those that leave comments and bloggers are also giving away RAK gifts (all random drawings). The more you leave comments the better the chances for you to win. Some great manufactures have donated some great gifts, like stamps!! Now your excited, right.

Each blogger is showing the card that they will be sending in to Cards For Heroes. This organization is so awesome. Please check out there site when you get started on your blog hop. Maybe you can help in some way.

I decided to send in three cards. The heart cards were made a few years ago. I would rather they go to someone special than sit with my collection of cards and hopefully brighten someones day or put a smile on their face. They deserve it for all that they do for us!!

The next person on the blog hop is SAMANTHA over at http://www.allsamsidea.com
Check out her card she made for Cards For Heroes and scroll down to see some yummy cookies, I mean BIG BUTTON cookies, total cool and did I mention YUMMY!! Thanks for participating in the blog hop, I will be giving some embellies, stamped images and a edge distresser away for one of you that leaves a comment/feedback/praise.






(Close To My Heart products used: stamps, papers, inks, embossing powder, chipboard, stickers, other: brads, eyelets, ribbons)

Remember to start at the beginning!! Have a SWEET and SAFE Memorial Weekend!! God Bless!!
