Memorial Day Blog Hop!!




Please start your hopping at: Cards For Heroes

I made four versions of one simple design for today's hop:













Stamps are by Unity Stamp Co.
White stars on the ribbon are by Making Memories.

I really enjoy making cards to send to our heroes. It seems like such a small thing but it brings joy to those who are so far apart from each other. I have become so much more aware of the sacrifices so many are making. I hope my cards will help our heroes stay close to their families and friends.

The next stop on your hop is the very talented NICHOL She has a video up for you to see how she made her wonderful card for the hop!
