Cards that Care

Hey everyone, this is the beginning of my very first blog hop to promote "Cards that Care" over at Ling's Design Studio. You must have hopped over from Judy Marino. If you haven't yet, please visit her wonderful creation for "Cards that Care."

 So what is this all about? Ling and her friend Jennifer McGuire decided to team up once again to hold a wonderful card drive "Cards that Care," to spread the joy of the holidays to elderly that live in nursing homes. What a great cause isn't it? "Giving is caring." 

For this awesome cause I will be sending them this cutie of a card...from SOG girls Winter Mae. Just added some die cut Christmas trees, buttons, snowflakes, a little glitter, and some "fur" :)


And here's a close up...
 

With our creativity we can bring a happy jolly smile to these elders and what better way to give back to the community right?!? So, bust out those holiday papers, stamps, embellies and start making those wonderful Holiday/Christmas cards. 

Please go over to Ling's Design Studio to see the list of blog hoppers and their holiday inspirations.  While there don't forget to check out the details of how you can help.

Okay...........did you really think you were going to come out of this with nothing? Follow the blogs and leave comments for a chance to win a wonderful prize donated by : Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, Sweet Stamps Shop, Avocado Arts, I Love It All and more ;)

Winner will be random, the more you comment the more chances to win :). (comments are open till Sunday, midnight CST)

NOW, go over to Laurel Seabrook and see her Holiday Card creation. 

Thank you
