Cards for Heros Blog Hop!!- CLOSED

Ill be drawing my winner tonight! You'll be able to see a list of all the winners on the Cards for Heroes site!
PS- Those wanting to donate to help cover the cost of sending the cards, a little FYI. It costs 11.95 to send 325 cards! I know times are tough for everyone, but it makes it harder when you don't have your friends and family around to help you get through your day.

This is for a great cause where everyone wins! Not only will these military men and women be receiving cards to send home to their loved ones, but there are also RAKs that the site and individuals have to give away!! Magistical Memories has also been generous enough to donate a 10.00 GC to a random commentor on my blog! You'll need to register in the store to receive your gift certificate! Ill draw the winner on Tuesday. Please be sure to leave your email address in the comment so I can get ahold of you :D
If you're just getting in on this hop, you may want to go back to the beginning and leave a comment on the Cards for Heros blog. You can also take the time to see what the organization is all about. If you're not a card maker you can always donate through paypal or by using your CC, or sending a check to help with the postage costs of sending these cards over to our troops. Every little bit helps! If you are a card maker and have some home made cards laying around, please think about sending them to this great organization! There are ways to get kids, children or even your scout troop involved! Make sure to check out the "Get Involved" options at the top of the side bar.
Here are my cards that I'll be sending. I did just a little set. I know I have a lot of others to go through to send as well!
Dream Street papers and Magistical Memories were used. I tried to keep them simple, I know the beating those letters can go through!





Make sure to visit Deena's blog for the next step on the hop!!

Semper Fi!
