Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop!




Welcome to the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop!!  If you are wondering what exactly this hop is all about, here's a little information:

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. 

The card drive is going on right now till November 28, 2014If you'd like to send your cards for the card drive please go to this post on Vera Yates or Jennifer McGuire blog for all the card drive details.

I went for a classic color scheme and included black.  I just love the frame from Give Thanks from Reverse Confetti........did I mention the coordinating Confetti Cuts?  

11.3.14

I can't say much more about the project other than there may be a sneaky peeky of some things to come later this week during release week!  {wink}  If you want more of peek.......check out the post over on the Reverse Confetti blog......HERE.  :)
