Cards that Care Blog Hop!

I'm super excited to be a part of the Cards that Care Blog Hop today!


You should have arrived here from the wonderful Kathy Racoosin's blog, The Daily Marker.
If not, start at the beginning of the hop which is Vera Yates' blog:  Ling's Design Studio.  
Cards that Care is an awesome way to touch the lives of many people.  Here is a smidge about how it works:

The holidays are about family, about kindness, and joy. The holidays are the times when many of the elderly who live in nursing homes feel lonely or miss their family. Wouldn't it be awesome if we could bring a smile to their faces & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? It is a simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten.

We all love making cards and what would be better than knowing our creations can bring a smile to others? We hope that many of you will help and join us in our effort to spread joy & cheer.

Be sure to read all the deets about Cards that Care HERE.

I had a ton of fun putting this together...I love the look of non-traditional colors in holiday cards.

Everything except the card base is from the Basic Grey Nordic Holiday Collection....dontcha love it?

Wanna take a peek at the prizes?
