Cards for Heroes Blog Hop



Cards for Heroes is a wonderful organization!


The mission of this group is to support our nation’s armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

What a great group for all of us papercrafters to support!

Almost everyone in the country is touched by someone they know who is shipped off overseas to serve this wonderful country.

My Hero is my brother-in-law Kevin Twyeffort. This is Kevin's 2nd time serving overseas. I think of him often and pray that he will soon return home to Stephanie, Sarah, Hannah, and Caleb! (He actually is on a 2 week leave right now!)

Kevin Twyeffort

Here is my card ... Thanks Kevin for making a difference!!!



I stamped the outside with The Angel Company's patriotic star from the For All Seasons set. I then colored it with my Copic markers. I then stamped a circle from the All Occasion Circle set and colored in some of the circles. I punched out the circle with my punch and then mounted it on a red scalloped circle. I used the sentiment from the Ordinary Greeting set. I added a blue ribbon and viola! My patriotic card.





Here is the inside of my card.


Thanks again Kevin for everything that you do for me, your family, and your country! You really do make a difference to all of us!
