Cards For Heroes Memorial Day Blog Hop!

I started making cards for Cards For Heroes in February of this year.  My twin brother, step-sister, uncle, cousin and grandpa all served in the military!  I knew instantly that I needed to join this group of wonderful card makers whom support our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards for them to write in and send back home to their loved ones. I know it will bring a smile to their face when they receive a handmade card in the mail! For this card I printed a b/w image from this website. I colored the image with pencils. The sentiment is from Stampendous. Thank you for stopping by!
