Memorial Day Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blog and the Memorial Day Blog Hop. This hop is about showing Patriotism and Gratitude to those serving in the Armed Forces. As an Army Wife, this is something I am extremely passionate about.  I know exactly what the men and women in our Armed Forces have to leave behind to protect us all.  My husband will be shipping out in less than a month!!  I have made a couple of cards to thank the men and women who are serving our country, allowing us all to have our FREEDOM.  May God Bless them and keep them safe!

If you have come from Sandy's blog then you are in the right place.

If you are just visiting my blog and would like to hop along with us on the Memorial Day Blog Hop, please start at the beginning with Sylvia's blog.  This hop is full of talented ladies and giveaways too!!

I will be donating these cards to Bazzill Basics Paper who has agreed to help a little boy named Stephen in Arizona, who would like to send 180,000 cards to the troops by July 1st.

Thank you for hopping with us today!
Your next stop is with Patty 

Here is a list of the wonderful ladies involved with this hop: 

If you would like to help Stephen reach his goal by sending some homemade cards please go to  for more info

As an army wife, I am extremely proud of all of our military branches! With the news that we received earlier this week, I am even more proud of them!  Our military does not falter when it comes to standing up for their fellow Americans.  They pick up and pack up their gear on a moments notice in order to complete a mission that they have been called to do.  Our military men and women are willing to leave their parents, spouses, children and friends all for the sake of protecting fellow Americans that they have never even met.

I know first hand what the families and friends of service members go through during deployments. Many military wives have been pregnant and gone into labor without their husbands stateside to support them and help them.  These men sometimes do not have the opportunity to hold or kiss their newborns for months on end.  Military women have to leave behind their young children and miss out on many milestones of their children's life.  Being a friend or family member of military personnel can be very trying as well.

I can not even begin to thank our troops enough for the sacrifices that they make in order to protect us!  Any how, here is a card that I crafted for our service men and women.
