Thanks to the Troop Blog Hop June 17 & 18th

Hello Friends!
First of all Welcome!! If you are here for the Thanks to the Troop Blog Hop you are in the right place otherwise start at Haidee from the beginning since you don't want to miss any inspiration and talented ladies with their creations as well... I want to thank Maria "Gonescraphappy" Delgado for having me on this hop and I am honored to be making cards for our heroes! We are giving our cards to the Soldier Angels for the troops and if you need more information please go to the website

Here are my cards:

Card #1 was very simple...I used some flag material I had for another project and I love the 3D effect it has so I simply pasted it down with my ATG and then I stamped the sentiment and popped it with dots for each part and layered upon each other. Inside I do have a sentiment thanking our Hero for his sacrifice.

Card #2 I used my ribbon as a embellishment and the stamped "God Bless America" (by Verve) and popped it up with a pop up dot on top of the ribbon and then I stamped three different stars from the same stamp set as the sentiment in blue Ink to make it stand out on the red and then on two of them I put a yellow button on match the middle like a star of its own.

Thanks for stopping by and I do have blog candy! I have stickers to give away....these are wonderful for Scrapping LOs or even for other projects...just make sure you post a comment and give me an email address if you don't I will draw again...I am having problems with people not giving an email and claiming the prize and that is not fair to others who hop. Thanks and I would be honored if you followed me and also take my button if you have a blog of your own. :)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you were inspired and come back to visit me again...
In His Love,
Be Inspired,
