Cards for Heroes Blog hop!

Welcome to my blog and Happy Memorial day!

I know we have a lot of blogs to visit, I'll keep this as short as I can. First of all thank you for stopping in. I hope you'll come and visit me again.

Today is the cards for heroes blog hop, what is exactly a blog hop. Well, it's a fun way to get a message out by hopping from one blog to the next and seeing what is going on. It is more fun if you start from the beginning, so go to the site here and check it out!

Cards for heroes, is a non profit org that makes cards for our heroes to send home. What an awesome idea, I've been sending to them for a while, and have held little play dates to help make mass amounts of cards, that is a fun way to play and get together with your girl friends. I like making cards for our heroes for a few reasons. I love stamping, and I love the freedom we have here, and this is the way I can honor our service people for keeping us free.

Sandy & the gang at cards for heroes asked us to post a card in a red white and blue theme that we will be sending to cards for heroes. I was going to do a flag card, then a frog card and wound up with this. So, not what I had in mind..LOL (like that has never happened to you!!!)

So, today I used a adorable Bella stamp, she is so cute, love her. The pp is from su and has cherries on it, and that went with her little dress, so there ya have it, a cute red, white and blue birthday card. Hope you enjoy it and find some inspiration.

NOW YOU GOTTA HOP ON TO THE NEXT BLOG :
