#139 Memorial Day Blog Hop
Hi everyone welcome to the Memorial Day Blog Hop hosted by Sylvia of Bella Scrapbook Designs. If you are here from Sylvia's blog then you are in the right spot! I was super excited when Sylvia asked me to join in her wonderful hop because it's for such a great cause.......
For this hop Sylvia has asked us all to donate our cards to this sweet 10 year old boy named STEPHEN who is trying to collect 180,000 cards to send to the troops!!! That is so amazing!! I can not believe that someone so young can make a difference, he really has me thinking about making some changes in my own life too!! Stephen if you are reading this you are truly an inspiration to us all!!
For my card I was going for a Memorial Day themed card which I had my hubby help me create it, he told me which cuts and stamps to use for my card, thanks honey! For those of you who do not know my hubby is a Marine Veteran who served at Camp Pendleton for 5 years, and now he is working as a Government Contractor who has to deploy overseas very often; so anything military related is very close to my heart.
The cuts are from Stand and Salute which I added pop dots underneath, I stamped the sentiment with Pink By Design "Our Heroes" stamp set and embossed with my Cuttlebug.
I am so touched by Stephen's story and plan and sending him some cards. If you would like to help out by thanking our troops you can send a card Here or if you don't want to fill out all of their information you can send your card directly to me and I would be happy to mail it out along with mine email me at email@example.com for more info. They have a sweet trip up for grabs to the winner and I would love to win a trip especially since it's not to far from my home!
Now for some blog Candy! In honor of Memorial Day I am giving away 5 cuts of your choice from the Stand and Salute Cricut cart OR 5 cuts of your choice from the Independence Day Cricut cart.
NEXT STOP is KRISTAL
