Cards for Heroes Mini Blog Hop

I am participating in a mini blog hop with other talented crafters in honor of the Cards for Heros program. This amazing organization has sent over 170,000 cards to our military men and women in service to our country.

In the scrapping community, there are lots of military wives and military kids. I've learned so much about what they and their military spouses/parents go through to provide our protection and freedom. I am truly honored and humbled by their efforts. I love that CFH provides comfort to both the servicemen and -women overseas by giving them cards to send to their families, and also comfort to the families waiting back home when they receive that card.

I made this card using some scrap paper, a stamp, some ink, and a slide mount. To dress up the slide mount, I doodled a few holly leaves and berries with a Martha Stewart Crafts opaque pen, then put in the details with an American Crafts slick writer.


If you get a chance today, make a small Christmas card and send it in to CFH so that a solider can let his/her family know how much they mean to them from so far away. If you want, you can participate in our CFH Card Drive at ScrapStreet.com too, and not only get the chance to win some great prizes but truly make Christmas special for the "waiting families" at home. The deadline for getting Christmas Cards to CFH is November 1st and right around the corner! Make sure you get those holiday cards in soon!

  7. Cool card! My eye was caught immediately by the slide mount and then I noticed the background design, the swirly one that makes me think of puffy clouds. It is all pretty!
