Caring Hearts Update

Today marks the last day of Caring Hearts Card Drive collection. From the support of the companies & people that donate the prizes, to the people who sent tons of cards, this whole journey has been so amazing. I am so touched by everyone's kindness and hopefully  many of you will join me again next year as I plan on organizing this event annually and who knows, maybe next year we can do it bigger & reach more places!

Here's a peek of some of the cards that came in this past week! Tons of gorgeous cards that for sure will brighten so many people holiday season! THANK YOU to each and every one of you for your wonderful cards.




I haven't check the mail box today, and I am sure there will be quite a few more coming in as I have several people notified me that they just mailed their packages this past weekend. For now, we have reached at least 525 cards and that just from the one that came in. Plus mine we have at least 580!

Before I was short on Thanksgiving cards, now I have enough to send the cards to at least 3 nursing homes! Yay!! This weekend I was busy sorting & counting all the cards. Make sure all the entries are counted for. Since we have so many entries, I decided to have winner for each prizes. I created a list from all the entries and will let random organizer do the job of picking the winners. I will announce winners for the prizes this Friday. So make sure you check back then!

Now, as I told you before my mojo has been on vacation. And, honestly I am still struggling a bit. I think I was just a bit overwhelmed with everything that's going on right now. Anyway, I do have this image colored from a few weeks ago. So, all I need to do was adding some patterned paper and some stitching. Since, my sewing machine is kaput, I decided to be crazy enough to do hand stitches. Yeah... that's not going to happen often. :) I love, love Lily Of The Valley stamp. Their stamps are just so sweet & adorable.

Challenges:
Crafty Calendar - winter
Caardvarks - holiday cards using die cuts
ABC Challenge - holidays

I love anything that's animal related. These cute bunnies reminds me of my favorite stuff animal which was a bunny that I got from my mom and I do still have that bunny. It came with me all the way from Indonesia! :)

Okie dokie, that's it from me today. BTW, does any of you order the latest release from Papertrey? What did you order? Sigh... I really want to order, but still debating. So many stamps, not enough $$. Hah...how do you decide what to order each month. There's so many companies and they each have new releases every month! Oh well, I better go before I start rambling all over the place. :) Hope your week starts off great!
