Caring Hearts Blog Hop

Good morning!  Thanks for stopping by!  Many of you probably have been sent over from Gretchen's blog.  And if you didn't come from there... you really should pay her a visit!  Are you ready for some awesome give aways??   Today I am excited to be a part of the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog hop.  We have all made holiday themed cards to bring you some inspiration.  Now it is YOUR turn to make a card or two and send it over to the card drive.  The cards are being collected and will be given to elderly people living in nursing homes over the holidays.  Please check out the details of the card drive here.

In the meantime, leave me a comment here and be sure to make the next stop on the blog hop...Jennifer Edwardson.  Each blog you visit and each comment you leave gives you more of a chance to win a prize!  Bella Blvd, Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn, Avocado Arts, May Arts, Two Peas in a Bucket and Jennifer McGuire are the awesome companies offering prizes so be sure to stop at each blog and leave a comment!  And now for some card inspiration....



I actually didn't use any true holiday paper to make this card.  I just pulled some papers from other lines and made my own color palette.  I used stamps and punches that were Christmas themed and then sure enough my papers looked Christmassy!



 Again, leave a comment for a chance to win some prizes and be sure to check out Jennifer's blog, the next blog on our hop today!  Be sure to check out the details on the card drive...We really appreciate your cards and I know how much the people in the nursing homes love it too.

Thanks again for stopping by!
