Cards for Heroes blog hop

YYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Welcome to the Cards for Heroes Blog Hop.
YYYYYYYYYYYYYY

A whole bunch of cardmakers have gotten together and made some special cards to send to our soldiers in the middle east, and we are featuring our creations in a Blog hop! I enjoy making digital art, so my cards are all original digital collages.




At the end of this post you will find the next link on the hop. Here is the start of the blog hop (http://cardsforheroes.org/bloghop) if you came here first and missed a few, it’s easy to take the link back and be inspired at the very beginning, at the "top of the hop".



Cards for Heroes supports our nation’s armed forces by sending them blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. They do this by asking for handmade card donations from people like you and me. The website address is http://cardsforheroes.org/. You will be uplifted when you read how the soldiers love getting these cards.


I have tender spot in my heart for our soldiers in the middle east. The conditions are so harsh and the culture is so different. I wanted to show my support and was so glad to find http://www.anysoldier.com/, then a link to http://www.cardsforheroes.org/.

Making cards for our troops lets me contribute on a personal level and say thank you to a person who is fighting for freedom.




OK! OK! off you go now! Thanks for stopping by, I have had so much fun chatting with you, but you best be on your way.

On to your next destination. to Melissa’s beautiful blog, she makes the most amazing cards and has a shop on Etsy and works in the scrapbook industry DESIGNING STAMPS. You won’t want to miss it!

Beautiful cards! As the spouse of a deployed solider I have to say that these will be cherished and appreciated! Also, the bundles of cards are also treasured I am sure! DH just complained to me the other day that he was forced to "make" me a card b/c all that was available in the makeshift PX were birthday and graduation!
Thanks for your time and effort!
