Thank You Gift

This week has started in such a great way. First, I am so thrilled to see my name here as one of the 10 lucky winner for Paper Crafts WCMD Gallery Stroll Winners Round 2. Me likey happy goodies. :) 

Then, after work I went & picked up some more cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive. Here's some of the cards that came in. All I can say there's so many talented ladies out there. These seniors going to be sooo happy to receive your gorgeous cards.


Ladies, we break 700!! How awesome is that? There's some more ladies who just mailed their cards out yesterday and I will keep those cards to bring to the nursing homes here in Houston in time for Christmas delivery. My sweet friend Leslie will be helping me hand delivered these cards in December and hopefully they'll allow us to take some pictures. LOL, I am pretty shy, that's why I have to drag Leslie to go with me. She's my PR gal. :)

Meanwhile, here's a list of the Caring Hearts participants. Or you can simply click the tab that says Caring Hearts on the top part of my blog. If you don't see your name please let me know ASAP byThursday noon the latest. Door prize winners will be announced Friday, 11/19/10.

I wish I could give everybody a prize for sending their cards, but since we only have certain amount of door prize, Jehanne from Just Some Lines has graciously donated this digi stamp as a thank you gift from me and her to all of you who participate for this card drive. It's nothing big, but I just want you to know how much I appreciated you all for everything. Simply click on it & save the file and it's ready for use. Please leave some love for Jehanne by checking out her store or her blog here. She has many whimsical & cute digi stamps.



Here's a couple cards from me. The first one using this cutie patootie "Goodnight Mouse" also from Just Some Lines. That border was made using the stamp set that I won from Mint Motif. Love it!

Challenges:
Wild Orchid - blue christmas
One Stitch At A Time - your favorite colors
Caardvarks - die-cut

My second card using the tree freebie.

Challenges:
Craft Your Days Away - christmas trees
Totally Gorjuss - christmas in traditional colors

I hope you enjoy your visit here today. Have a blessed Tuesday!

Wow, 700?! That is cool and they are beautiful! Thank you so much for doing all the hard work. This couldn't have happened without you leading the way. Don't worry about giving out prizes - knowing that our cards will be making others happy - that warmth is prize enough. Oh and that digi tree is so cute.

700! That is AMAZING! You only have me down for 2 cards, and I actually sent three... I don't really care so much in terms of the extra chance at the prizes, I just want to make sure you received the third card I sent separately. Thanks again for organizing this!
