Caring Hearts Card Drive Hop


I'm honored to be hopping today for the Caring Hearts Card Drive! If you arrived here from Amy Kolling, you're right on track. If not, click on over to Vera Yates to get started!



Caring Hearts Card Drive is a card drive organized by Vera Yates & Jennifer McGuire with the goal to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing home. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be so 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. 

For details on how to mail your card or cards, visit this post. I hope you'll participate and help spread some holiday cheer! The card drive goes until November 28

No hop is complete without prizes. Leave comments for a chance to win! Comment deadline: midnight CST Saturday, November 8, 2014. Winners will be chosen randomly based on collective comments left on the designers' blogs. Be sure to leave loads of love for everyone!

Prize list:

Online Card Classes – class of your choice! (THREE winners)
Simon Says Stamp – $50 gift certificates
Inspiration emporium – $25 gift certificate
Verve Stamps - $30 gift certificate
Latina Crafter - $15 GC
May Arts – 2 rolls of ribbon
Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking - 1 year free subscription to Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine

I've used some brand-new Reverse Confetti products for my card today. New stamps and dies coming soon, November 8; "official" peeks begin on the 5th!


And here's a look at the inside:



Next up on today's hop is Sarah Gough! Enjoy!
