DS4J Blog Hop DT Card - 5 – 11 October 2013 - revision

Welcome to the Digistamps4Joy COUNTRY theme Blog Hop running from 5 – 11 October 2013 to celebrate World Card Making Day on 5th October. 

You have arrived at Berni’s blog in SANTA CLARITA, CA (USA)! I have interpreted the country theme as a celebration to the remarkable soliders and their families who protect our land.

Santa Clarita is the third largest city in Los Angeles County, California, United States and the nineteeth largest city in the state of California. The 2012 population estimate from the California Department of Finance is 204,951.
