A day late and a dollar short, but I'm playing anyway

I heard about this wonderful Blog Hop for Heroes on Jennifer McGuire's blog (you will LOVE her blog. Her cards are already up) but was a little late in getting signed up. I decided to post a card anyway and tell you about the hop. Head on over to Cards for Heroes and at about noon today (pacific time) there will be a large button at the top. Click the button and you can begin hopping. There are about 130 participants who have created cards that will be sent to those in the military so they can have cards to send to friends and family while they are away serving our country. What a great thing to be a part of!

Again, if you'd like to hop, go to Cards for Heroes and there are instructions there so that you can see all of the beautiful cards that have been created and visit lots of fun blogs in the process. There are even prizes for hoppers!

Although I missed signing to be one of the blogs on the hop, I did find out that I can participate as a latecomer in a little different way. I guess my blog will be added to the list, but I won't be part of the daisy chain this organization is creating of the 130 people who signed up before the deadline. That's OK. The most important part is sending my card to the heroes of this country. Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful Saturday this fine Memorial Day weekend.
