cards for heros mini blog hop

not too long ago, i became aware of a website called cards for heros. its’ mission is to support our armed forces by providing blank greeting cards to write home on as well as cards thanking them for all they do for us. thousands of cardmakers and scrapbookers across America are joining forces to share their gifts and talents to bless those deployed far from home, and in return are bringing smiles to families and friends across the country! our troops overseas do not have the luxury of running to the nearest target to purchase cards. to date more than 172,000 handmade cards have been made and donated to our troops. you can learn more about this organization by going to: http://cardsforheroes.org/about/.

on august 15, 2009 cards for heros will be doing a mini blog hop. I am so excited to participate in my first blog hop. take a few minutes and follow the link at the bottom of this post to the next blog in our blog hop. hopefully the talents of these cardmakers and scrapbookers will inspire you to make some cards for our heros! please join in the fun and support our troops!
here is my holiday card for the cards for heros mini blog hop. i know that there is not alot i can do for the men and women in the armed forces, but i hope the few cards that i can contribute will bring some joy to them, than i will feel like i reached out and touched them.

the deadline for making holiday cards for our heros is november 1, 2009. if you would like to participate, you can do so by going to: http://cardsforheroes.org/bloghop.

please let me know you stopped by, by leaving me a comment.

the next stop on the blog hop is Christina's blog at http://letsgetcrafting.blogspot.com/2009/08/happy-holidays-for-our-heroes-mini-blog.html

  2. That is a happy card!

    The "Joy" part at the top - Is that a stamp, or a die cut, or is that part of the paper?
