Welcome to the Cards for Heros Blog Hop!



I'm so proud to be participating in the Cards for Heros Blog Hop this Memorial Day weekend! You have joined in the middle of the hop. To start at the top of the hop, click here. Cards for Heros sends cards to our men and women serving overseas so they can, in turn, send them back to their loved ones who are still stateside. Please be sure to visit their website at http://cardsforheroes.org/.



As the President of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Century Post 503 in Downers Grove, Illinois, I spend much of my time finding ways to serve our Veterans as well as our Troops. My Stampin' Up! business and very addictive hobby has given me a way to give a little more of myself to the soldiers who are working to keep our land free.



"The Free and the Brave" is the very first Stampin' Up! stamp set I ever purchased. I bought this set so I could make card sets to raffle at our VFW functions. I love the stamps and the images in the set. This picture of the soldier backing our American Flag truly embodies our Nation's military, their work, and the freedom they fight so hard to create for the people of our land.






Please follow me to the next blog on this fabulous Blog Hop! Lauren has a beautiful blog with fabulous projects. I'm sure you'll enjoy jumping around her blog as well. http://laurenm.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2009/05/23/cards-for-heroes-blog-hop/






Thanks for visiting my blog! I wish you all a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. GOD BLESS THE USA!!
