Memorial Day - Cards for Heros Blog Hop!

...Let's go to the Hop, Lets go to the Hop, Oh Baby!.... runnin' thru MY head as I write this :-)

Welcome & Thank you for stopping in!

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us! For many, it's three days of fun in the sun and welcoming summer with that fist BBQ. It's great to enjoy yourselves, but keep in mind that Memorial Day is also about remembering soldiers that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

In honor of Memorial Day, Cards for Heroes put together a nice tour of card making blogs! If you'd like to start at the top o' the hop click here!

We're all posting patriotic cards that we've made to send to the troops. To Make this birthday card I used my fabu template for making 80 cards from one Stampin' Up! Simply Scrapping Kit, and yes - I made 80! I still have some last minute finishes to them - plan to add a label to the back with the Cards for Heroes website, and some more inside greetings, but then I am shipping them all off to CFH. I have been learning more about this great group since I found them on Twitter, and as I was reading thru the website I found that Birthday Cards for Men are in high demand! Using the Best Ever Kit I was able to make about 1/2 Birthday, and 1/2 Congratulations cards. The birthday ones I did more in the red and blues, and the congrats are done mostly in the green and blues. I figure the congrats cards would be good for friend to friend cards for positive news or accomplishments. I really hope that our troops and their families will enjoy these cards!!

I encourage everyone who reads this to get involved with this organization in whatever way suits you: send blank cards (handmade or store-bought); send an AnyHero letter/card; send a donation to help pay for shipping! Even a Dollar makes a Difference!

Your next hop: Paper Fun By Lysa is a great stop - full of some really creative cards! Make sure you look around and checkout Lysa's awesome Useful Links! Enjoy!!

Happy Crafting & Hope to see you again!
