Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Now, I have never really been that patriotic... up until the time that I am now an adult living my own life and realizing what is going on in the world. I came across this organization called Cards For Heros that sends not only cards of encouragement and appreciation but also blank cards that the troops can write on and then send home to their loved ones. I have been wanting to get involved in something similar lately, so I am excited to have found such a great cause and organization!

This weekend Cards for Heroes is holding a Blog Hop, in which you "hop" over to several different blogs of those who are participating by creating special cards in honor of the troops! You hop from each blog to check out each of the cards and projects created by these talented ladies (I hope to participate in this next year!). If you would like to check it out, just click RIGHT HERE and it will take you to where you can get started :)

I decided to create a VERY simple card in honor of this Memorial Day weekend and will create several more to send in to Cards for Heroes. If any of you are interested in donating cards please go HERE OR even money to ship a box over ($11.95/box) please go HERE.

I truly do appreciate all who dedicate their lives to providing a safe and free country for us to live in. Please know that you are not forgotten and you will always be appreciated! May God bless you all and your families.
