Cards for Heros Blog Hop


I am so honored to be part of Cards for Hero Blog Hop. Cards for Heros is a fantastic organization that collects blank cards to send the soldiers to send to their families.

The military holds a special place in my heart. My DH served 8 years in the Air Force and my son is looking at a career in the military. My family has been in involved with Sea Cadets for 8 years. Sea Cadets is a Jr. Navy program where kids can partake in trainings at military bases.

If you haven't started at Cards for Hero Blog Hop, head their first and follow the blog hop.
Your next stop is Lisa's blog. Go see her beautiful card. (Below is the link straight to Lisa's post. I have been unable to link it to it.)

I made 2 4x4 cards. I used Mojo Monday's sketch for the layout. I used Studio G stamps from Pez A Doodle. The square embellishments are Pez A Blings from Pez A Doodle.
