Cards for Heroes Blog Hop

Isn't the card making world full of lovely kind hearted people...
Sandy and Fabre are 2 such people.  They are running this Blog Hop to raise awareness of their fabulous venture, Cards for Heroes which sends blank greetings cards to serving US armed forces to write home on.  

My card is in honour of Sandy and Fabre to say a massive well done for their efforts.  Their generosity is certainly inspiring.

Supplies:  Stamps - Hero Arts (stars, sentiment, scallop); PP - Bo Bunny, Bazzill, recycled cake box; Buttons - Basic Grey.

Not only is this Blog Hop a fabulous opportunity to see hundreds of amazing blogs and cards, but there are going to be LOADS of prizes and giveaways too.  YAY.

SO: click HERE to be taken to the next blog on the hop - Simply Sarah.

Or: click HERE to start the hop from the beginning at the Cards for Heroes Homepage.  
Enjoy!!!
