HAPPY 236TH BIRTHDAY, MARINES!! As we celebrate the 236th birthday of the United States Marine Corps, we also remember all men and women who have chosen to serve our country so we can all be free. I'd like to say a special thank you to my husband, who has served this country proudly for the past 19 1/2 years as a United States Marine. He's been through five deployments, including three tours to Iraq, and he missed the birth of our son by two weeks and one day. I am so proud to stand beside him as his wife!
Thanks for stopping by on our hop! The ladies participating have some GREAT projects! Some of them may be giving away blog candy, too, so be sure you visit everyone. This is a three-day hop, and most of us will have a new project every day, so we'd LOVE it if you'd visit all three days! My first project is a birthday card for the Marines:
I'm planning to have three small giveaways and one big one for this hop. To be entered into the random drawing for each one, here's what you need to do:
--Become a follower of my blog (if you're not already).
--Leave me a comment telling me you're either a follower already or a new follower.
--To be eligible for the large drawing, you must comment each day of the hop AND be a follower.
--To be eligible for the small drawings, you only need comment on an individual day.
That's it! Today's prize is a $10 gift card to Michael's, Joann's, or Hobby Lobby--your choice! All winners will be announced on Sunday, November 13.
Here's the blog hop lineup, in case you get lost along the way:
1. Ashley (That's me!)
Your next stop is Beckie. Thanks for stopping by, and if you know a service member or veteran, be sure to take a moment to tell them thank you for their service. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't have the freedoms we have today!
