I'm tickled to death to be a stop on the Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop For Heroes. This is such an awesome organization. Helping our nations armed forces stay in touch will loved ones at home. Since I love making cards it's a nice little way for me to say how much I appreciate their sacrifice for our country. Two of my cousin's children are serving in war zones at this time & I know that these kinds of things really do make a difference & brighten their day.
If you've just stumbled upon my post & would like to do the blog hop from the beginning or just want more details on what you can do to support Cards for Heroes visit their website. Trust me you will be overloaded with inspirational stories & beautiful cards.
I've made several cards that will quickly on their way to Heroes. (I know not all are in the red-white & blue color theme - leave it to me to be a renegade)
CFH is offering some great prizes this weekend. They will be picking the winners from all the comments posted on all the blogs. So I hope you've been commenting
I thought I'd do a couple giveaways in honor of CFH. Leave a comment to be entered in the drawing for:
A $20 gift certificate to Everything Scrapp'n an online scrapbooking store (they are having a 35% off entire order sale this weekend - coupon code MEMORIAL). They are also doing a giveaway for every $20 you order this weekend you get 1 entry to win a super chic scrapbook tool tote.
My local scrapbook store EMI Scrapbooking has generously donated one of their beautiful mini-book kits My Priceless Memories retail value $23. They sell worldwide in their Etsy store check out their other amazing kits -- they look great in photos but let me tell you when they are in your hands they sure have the WOW factor. These kits are designed for the store with the help of the super talented Michelle.
Thanks to Heather owner of Everything Scrapp'n for matching my gift certificate & to Susan owner of EMI Scrapbooking, Cumming GA for the mini. Be sure to comment to be entered to win. The two winners will be chosen by Random Number Generator on Tuesday, May 26 at noon eastern time.
