Caring Hearts Blog Hop


I found out through Alice's blog that our Flickr friend Vera was hosting a Caring Hearts Card Drive and coordinated today's blog hop. Caring Hearts will collect holiday cards to send to elders living in a nursing home, care home, or other assisted living facility. I couldn't pass up the chance to be a part of such a great cause.

There are awesome prizes for participants and commenters, too, so make sure you visit all the blogs on the hop to be eligible. You have until Wednesday, October 27th at midnight (CST) to leave your comments, with winners to be announced on Vera's blog on Friday, the 29th.

If you came here from Corry's blog, then you're on the right track. In case you get lost during the hop, the list of participants can be found on Vera's blog.



Here's my card using one of Jane's newest digis--Snowman and Bird--which is on sale over at Squigglefly. Although you can't see it, I added a bit of gloss on the bird and the snowman's carrot nose. And lots of Liquid Pearls for snow.

To participate in, or for more information about the Caring Hearts Card Drive, which will accept cards until November 15, visit Vera's blog post here.

Your next stop on the hop is Dawn's fabulous blog. Thanks for hopping along with us, and thank you, Vera, for coordinating this "feel good" event!

Stamps: Jane Beljo for Squigglefly, Hero Arts sentiment
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up
Paper: Crate Paper
Ink: Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass distress inks; Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, Liquid Pearls, Sakura Aqua Lip, ribbon, pop dots
