Hero Arts and Cards for Heroes - Challenges

4th of July & Born in the USA Cards
See the USA block in Red?
I made that with my new cricut!!!

It's Your Special Day
(I'm lovin' the stars!)

Born in the USA
For a soldier to send home as a birthday card for a loved one

It's Your Special Day and Congratulations Cards

I told you I was on a star kick!!!

This is how I spent my Memorial Day.
Making Cards for the Cards for Heroes project.
And of course, mowing, raking, feeding lambs, doing laundry and feeding my family :)

BBQ??? We had slow cooked ribs and mashed potatoes for dinner!
AND we all had a fun ice cream treat midday!
The kids and I delivered ice creams to Dick & Ramon who were at the headquarters
making the pasture poultry 'house'


This is an awesome week at the Hero Arts Blog! The challenge this week is to make manly cards, and for an 'extra' challenge, to make cards to send for the Cards for Heroes organization!

How cool is that!!!!!!!

I actually started early - thanks to the weekend Cards for Heroes Blog Hop!

Right now, I have 9 completed cards to send off! Gee! and for the 25 + 2 challenge which lasts all summer, I'm ahead of the game!

Yippee Skippie!!!!

Reality Check:
I started out making 4th of July cards.. Which would be good for the 'Any Soldier' program (send them a card you sign) but not for the Cards for Heroes - which are cards for the soldiers to send back home.. Too long of a delay.. So I switched to birthday, special day and congratulations cards!

And, as I stated earlier.. I am on a star kick right now!!!!!!!!

And Red White and Kraft....

Vintage fun.

OK.. I gotta go rake some grass!
