During Caring Hearts Blog Hop, what Savitri wrote captured my thought perfectly. Here's what she wrote: "I have a thing for old people, especially little sweet old men, they make me go “awwwwww” and reminds me of my own grandpa. But in general, lot of them just brings a smile to my face. A little squeeze on my arm, a little laugh, home made cookies, whatever… old folks gives me the warm and fuzzies."
That's exactly what I thought & feel about the elderly. I always have soft spot in my heart for kids & the elderly. I love those jovial old folks that greeted you with a warm hug & smile. They remind me so much of my dad, who always have huge smile on his face.
Am I rambling? Sorry, just really want to share what Savitri wrote, since I can so relate to that. Also, another note, Nancy Krueger, one of my HA Flickr friend, has an aunt that run a a non-profit charity called Letters from Home, in which she sends letters to lonely people in retirement homes. Here's a link to the website: http://lettersfromhomeinc.org/ It's kind of like what I am doing with Caring Hearts Card Drive. They don't accept cards, but they do accept donation to help with mailing cost and all. Thought I share the link here if it's something that you'd like to support.
On to cards, shall we? Since, I am working on tons of holiday card, sticking to simple & quick is a must. Here's a quick cards I made using the soon to be released Digital Doodles "Frosty Friend" snowman (you can purchase him starting next week at Two Peas In A Bucket).
