Happy Blog Hop!

http://cardsforheroes.org/bloghop


Here is the card I made for the hop, just a simple way to say thanks to a hero. I used Basic Grey Boxer for the PP's, stamp is Studio G, and the ribbon is from Michael's.



I've helped out with Cards for Heroes in the past, it is a wonderful and easy way for a papercrafter to show the troops some support. A few tips I've learned that might be helpful are don't use glitter or the card can't be used and the card can be for any occassion. The card doesn't have to be red, white, and blue themed either. Easy peasy! You can find all the guidelines for participating in Cards For Heroes here http://cardsforheroes.org/send-handmade-cards/.


Alright, here is the next blog for all you Hoppers: http://stampyourheartoutwithcarollee.blogspot.com/2009/05/memorial-day-weekend-blog-hop.html

Carollee has a great blog, you are in for a treat. She is super talented, you'll find tons of inspiration on her blog. Make sure you leave her an extra comment or two while you're there!

Thanks to everyone who is participating. Cards For Heroes is a fantastic organization and I feel honored to be a part of their event. Be sure to check out their website http://cardsforheroes.org/ for more details.
