Memorial Day Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blog and the Memorial Day Blog Hop.  This hop is about showing our Patriotism and Gratitude to those serving in the Armes Forces. These cards are made with Love to Thank those Men and Women who are serving our country and allowing us all to sleep a little bit better at night .May God Bless them and keep them safe  These cards will be donated to Bazzill Basics Paper who has agreed to help a little boy named Stephen in AZ who would like to send 180,000 cards to the troops by July 1st.
If you have come from  Laura's blog,  then you are in the right place. If you are just visiting my blog and would like to play along then please start at Sylvia's Blog (www.bellascrapbookdesigns.blogspot.com) this hop is full of talented ladies and giveaways too.
First, I would like to begin by giving thanks to Sylvia for having me be part of her blog hop again. It is always a pleasure. Now, I wanted to create something that will show our Troops that we think of them as they are serving our Country. I used my new Cricut E2 to create these cards. I selected to use one of the pre-loaded cartridges which was Cricut Decals. Hope you like what I have made.
