Cards for Heroes Blog Hop!


I hope you're having a beautiful holiday weekend! As we celebrate Memorial Day, I wanted to share some cards that I've been making for our servicemen and women. If I'm your first stop, hop back to the Cards for Heroes blog to start the entire hop from the beginning! You wouldn't want to miss any of the fun! This group is dedicated to supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.


Now hop on over to Tammy's blog to see what she has to share. She gets beautiful results with colored pencils!

Have a great weekend!
Susan
