Cards For Heroes Bloghop ...and a Giveaway!

I just heard about a great organization, Cards for Heroes, that sends blank cards to soldiers that they can then send back to their friends and families, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. As of 5/17/09 CFH has sent 140,875 cards to our hero's. Please visit the site and give your support wih card donations of monetary donations for postage.

My husband served two deployments, one state side and one in Iraq, from October 2001 until December 2003. I am VERY proud of him!! I know he doesn't know it because all of the grief I send his way on his weekends and weeks away from me and our daughter but HE IS MY HERO and I love him for all that he is and all that he has done in his military career.

I wasn't able to sign up in time, so I'm not technically part of the Memorial Day Bloghop. If you want to participate in the hop and win prizes along the way, you need to start by clicking on the image at the top right. I highly encourage you to do so! I'm so honored to be doing this for the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedom, which we often take for granted. I know I do.

Here are the couple of cards I made to send to Cards for Heroes.
(sorry for the bad images - my camera stinks!)

The winner is JPScraps!!
Time for a Giveaway on such a great holiday! I am giving away a $15.00 gift certificate to Unity Stamp Company! Just leave a comment here by 11:59pm EST on Sunday, and I will randomly choose the winner on Monday morning! Good Luck!
