Cards for Heroes

If you landed here by accident, click here to get back to the start of the CFH blog hop:


Posted by Picasa
I made these cards for the Cards for Heroes Blog hop in celebration of Memorial Day.

Their Mission: 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.

The first card, I made with CHF's new set "We Remember" I just got it, I love it, isn't it fabulous?

The next two cards are made with SU's "Free and the Brave" set, another perfect set to use for military promotions, retirements, deployments, etc!

I am really excited to be a part of this great cause! What a fantastic way to spend Memorial Day Weekend, then honoring those who serve as well as creating cards for those who lose sleep waiting for their personal heroes to come home, both equally heroes in my book!


To my fellow service members, THANK YOU! To those who came before us, One thousand times THANK YOU! To those who love us, we couldn't do it without your love and support and To those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, so that we can sleep in peace, we are forever in your debt, this is for you!!!!!!

In Honor of Memorial Day, I am giving one lucky blogger this fantastic Stampin Up Set,
AND, if you sign up for my newsletter over Memorial Day weekend and leave a comment on this post, I will draw a lucky hopper's name to win this patriotic set as well!

Also, in honor of all my fellow service members, if you want to place an order for this set, for this weekend only, you can get a 15% discount, that's only $18.65 +S/H





*** I am working on my second go-around through the tour (I started a little to early this morning and missed so many great blogs!) I decided to make one card to donate to CFH this weekend, for every comment you guys leave me!!!


Happy Blogging and Remember:
Freedom Isn't Free!
