Mami Doodles & Caring Hearts Card Drive

Today is Mami Doodles day. We have new "CHRISTMAS" challenge for you and this new challenge is in support of Caring Hearts Card Drive. Elisa (creator of Mami Doodles) has many cute winter, Christmas or winter images and she's also one of the sponsor for the card drive.

There are many prizes for the card drive, from Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts, Paper Crafts, etc., and many, many others. Please consider joining in and you have till November 15 to mail in the cards. You can send Thankgiving, Christmas or Holidays wishes. The mission of this card drive is simply to brighten other people's holiday through the simple gesture of thoughtfulness.

I chose to focus on the elderly in nursing homes or care center in honor of my parents & grandparents. They didn't live in nursing homes, but they did feel the loneliness now & then. For that matter, I feel the loneliness each holiday simply because I am away from my mom & my brothers. My thought is I have my husband, in-laws, friends around me and I can feel the loneliness, the elderly in  the nursing homes most likely feel it even more. Nothing can ever replace being with your family or being at your own place.

The result of this thought is the card drive. We make cards almost every day, why not share our love for card making to cheer others, even if they're strangers to us, right? :)



This long card is inspired by Tanis' card from Caardvark's DT. I love this long shape. It's fun  to break away from the typical card shape once in a while.

This weekend I plan on making more cards for the card drive. I got some new Thanksgiving stamp, so will be working on that. Before I go, here's a cutie patootie Halloween tag I made for my niece. Love the spider web! :)

Pixie Dust Studio - fall theme
Creative Cottage - halloween
Stampin' Royalty - halloween
