CARDS that CARE Blog Hop



This is my second post for today. For the Young Crafters Unite Maculine Cards bloghop post please scroll down or click HERE

Hi and welcome to the CARDS THAT CARE bloghop.

The super talented Vera Yates Ling of Ling Design Studio has teamed up with the amazing Jennifer McGuire and they are organizing a drive to collect as many handmade holiday cards as possible to give away to the elderly and lonely in nursing homes. I think it is just such a wonderful idea and I am super proud to be part of the blohop today to promote it. If you want to know more about it and perhaps help out/be part of Cards that Care, go HERE to Vera's blog to find out about dates, addresses etc.

If you are doing the bloghop you should have come here from   Samantha LaRoe's blog.
If you just stumbled on my blog today, go HERE to find out more about the hop and see what you could win (there are FABULOUS prizes from FABULOUS companies like: Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts, Penny Black, Sweet Stamps Shop, Avocado Arts, & I Love It All see examples below - for full prizelist go to Vera's blog) ) simply by commenting on the participants' blogs. Winners will be picked randomly from comments left on the blogs so the more blogs you leave comments on the better are your chances. :) You have the whole weekend to leave comments (till Sunday, 11/6/11 midnight CST)



For my Christmas Card I used stamps from Hero Arts; Envelope Pattern, Joy to all and Magic of Christmas.
To continue, hop on over to Kalley Latevola's blog for more wonderful Christmas Card inspiration.

Have a great day and a great hop, hugs, Karin

My card is also for the texture challenge at Lily Pad Cards, the bling challenge at Hero Arts and  CAS-ual Friday's challenge - over the edge.
