Caring Hearts Card Drive

***For my CAS-ual Fridays Challenge card, please click here or scroll down!***

Have you heard about the Caring Hearts Card Drive started by the super talented Vera Yates? Today there is a special blog hop full of holiday inspiration to help get the word out about this amazing card drive. If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Savannah O'Gwynn's Blog!


If you would like to make a difference this holiday season, this card drive is a way to make a big impact. Cards are collected and distributed to the elderly that live in nursing homes and that might be a tad bit lonely. You can find more details here as to where to send your holiday cards. There are also some really amazing prizes up for grabs too if you can participate! I couldn't believe the list!

My card started out with a layer of patterned paper from last year's Echo Park Season's Greetings paper pack. I used a journal tag from the same pack, stamped it with a greeting from The Craft's Meow's Christmas Angel and Hearth and Home set and tied it all with some lush May Arts Silk Ribbon.  I hardly ever craft with journaling cards, so I was excited to get the push from Moxie Fab World's Paper Crafting Tips & Tricks Week: The Journaling Card Challenge. There was a whole sheet of cards in this collection, I will have to make some more holiday cards for the drive!

Here's the details on the hop: For a complete list of participants, please visit Vera's Blog. You have until Monday, 11/05/12 at Midnight CST to leave comments along the hop for additional prizes. Please consider making a few holiday cards for the drive after you've viewed the amazing inspiration!

Your next stop on the hop is Anita Recksiedler!
