Caring Heart

Six months ago I joined Digi Doodle Shop's Best design team and now we have come to the end of my term. I have decided to step down and I want to thank you to Judy and her mom for the wonderful opportunity to work with their beautiful designs. It's been a great experience & I know they will keep growing. 

Here's my card for this week "3-D" challenge. You can find out the challenge & prize detail here. For the top part of the barn, I layered it twice and the bottom part 3 times. I thought the goat was so cute cuddling with the cat. .

One Stitch At A Time - anything goes
Incy Wincy Designs - anything goes
Paper Pretties - animal or animal print

Embellish always have fun challenge, but somehow I often miss it. I was determine not to miss this one. :) For this card, what took me the longest was arranging the letters on my acrylic block for the background. These alphabets are from  Papertrey Ink Outlined Alphabet set. Embossed all the letter with silver embossing powder. For the "i" and "u" I stamped it again in black, embossed it, & popped it up. Add the heart shape. Also entering this for the Caardvarks clean & simple challenge.

As I mentioned on my previous post, I am planning on doing Caring Heart card drive, with the mission of sending cards to the elderly who lives in nursing homes. Just a simple way to brighten their day & acknowledge that they still exist & people do care about them.

This is something that my mom has suggested and I am inspired by Carolyn King's Heart to Heart Card Drive & Jennifer McGuire's Cards for Kids. I am finalizing all the details and instead of today, I will post the details and post it this Saturday, which happen to be World Card Making Day.

There will be prizes. So please be sure to tune in. *** And, if you know anybody who lives in nursing homes or know any nursing homes that could use the cards, please email me or leave a comment here with the information and I will arrange for them to receive our cards. ***
