Memorial Day Celebration


Thank you for viewing my patriotic card version for this Memorial Day Weekend.  

If you started the Cards for Heroes Blog Hop with this site,  start the entire blog at this site:       http://cardsforheroes.org/
That way you will see all the cards that were designed to honor our military, past and present. The Blog Hop will run through Memorial Day

Cards for Heroes is a great organization that gathers handmade cards and mails them to our troops for them to use themselves. It lets them see how much we appreciate their efforts and gives them a chance to send a special card home to loved ones and friends.

Many of us online have gotten together to make some sort of patriotic card for this Memorial Day weekend.  Basically, we are showing our support in a small way towards all of the men and women who are protecting our country now and have so in the past. We want to say, "Thank you".

Living in Kodiak, Alaska we are proud to have the men and women of  US Coast Guard living in our midst, as well as all the other enlisted persons of other branches of the Armed Forces. These people are an asset to the community and our country.  Thank you for all your hard work. We do appreciate you and what you stand for.

Now, please continue your Blog Hop with the next site by clicking herehttp://stampinforthesoul.blogspot.com/2009/05/cards-for-heroes-memorial-day-weekend.html
This is Pamela's site and you will find she is an extremely creative stamper who appreciates your visit as well.
