Memorial Day Blog Hop

Pin It Earlier this week, Fabre from Cards For Heroes contacted me asking if I'd be interested in being part of their Memorial Day Blog Hop. Would I? OF COURSE! I so appreciate everything that those in the military and their families sacrifice for my freedom. Cards For Heroes collects and sends blank greeting cards to those serving in our Armed Forces so that they can send cards home to their families and loved ones as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. If you'd like to donate cards, please visit HERE and choose a mailing address in the left sidebar that is nearest you to send your donation. It would be GREATLY appreciated!

For the Memorial Day Blog Hop, click on the link and you can start the hop at the beginning. It may not all start until 3pm Eastern, but just look for the "button" to turn full color, and you can start! There are over 100 stops, some offering blog candy and RAKs. The card I posted is a part of the donation I am sending to Cards For Heroes.

The next stop on your hop is Charlotte at Stamping Is My Therapy. Charlotte is from Colorado Springs and has a beautiful card posted for today's hop as well as some blog candy! So head on over to Charlotte's blog! Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, and enjoy the blog hop!
