Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop!


Click HERE for the Paper Made Bakery/Timeless Twine blog hop!


Hello and Welcome to the



You should have arrived here from the Fabulous Vera Yates blog


That's where all the fun starts!

I was thrilled when Vera asked if I wanted to be a part of the hop!

Here's a smidge about the Caring Hearts Card Drive:

The holidays are about family, about kindness, and joy. During this time many of the elderly who live in nursing homes really feel the loneliness or miss their family. Wouldn't it be awesome if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten...

I wanted to design a bright and happy holiday card:


I was surfing the PTI Christmas Ideas Pinterest board and was totally inspired by THIS card by Dawn McVey.

I combined Hero Arts



and

Paper Smooches'



These companies generously offered prizes for the hop: 

Bella Blvd
Hero Arts 
Lawn Fawn 
Avocado Arts 
May Arts
Two Peas In A Bucket 
and 
Jennifer McGuire has offered 2 online classes.

- Winners will be picked randomly from comments left on participants blog. The more blogs you leave comments on the better your chances!

- You have the whole weekend to leave comments (till Monday, 11/5/2012 midnight CST).

Now hippety hop over to the Lovely Laurel Beard's blog
