Cards for Heroes Blog Hop (and Giveaway!)

Front-1

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am about this blog hop. I have loved the Cards for Heroes organization since the moment I created my first card for them.  They have it so well "put together" – making it so rewardingfor everyone.  I did a drive for them with Hero Arts back in the fall and we got a TON of cards.  (And, hint hint – be sure to visit the Hero Arts blog on Monday for another chance to play…)

I did two cards for today… the second one uses the scraps from the first.  These aren't my typical style, but fun to do. I used my distress tool a lot on it – adds simple texture and warmth without bulk.

I also thought I would share a card I got recently from one of the heroes who I sent 300 cards to (left over from the card drive in the fall).  She is an MD who is currently serving.  Talk about amazing…
