Lawnscaping & Card Drive Question

Happy labor day lovely peeps! I hope you're enjoying this long weekend. I met up with Trinh for a long lunch yesterday as she's in town to visit her family and I  truly enjoyed it. I love it whenever I get to spend some time with her. Sigh... wish my card making friends live closer.

Now, to start this week, I have a sketch challenge from Lawnscaping to share with you sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

   Simon Says Stamp

The funny thing is I made this sketch, yet I was struggling to create a card for it. This past couple weeks, I feel like I've been in major card making slump. Hoping my card making mood will be back soon. Anyway, here's my card that I made.

As you can see the circle doesn't have to be a circle, you can use an image in place of the circle. My team mates definitely rock this sketch more than me. So, make sure you check out their projects HERE.

Now, question for you all. As some of you know, each year I do a card drive to collect card for the elderly in nursing homes. Last year I teamed up with Jennifer McGuire and this year she couldn't as she just had a new baby (who is super cute). My question for you, are you still interested to participate? Do you think I should do it again this year?

Do you have a nursing home in mind that can benefit from this card drive? Anyone want to volunteer to help bringing the card to the nursing homes when the time comes?

At this point I am still debating whether I should do it again or take a break. On one hand I know many people could use the cheering up our cards bring, on the other hand it's a lot of work with organizing, promoting, and finding sponsor to make the card drive successful. Please share your opinion. If you're interested to help or have any suggestion, please email me at wirianta at hotmail dot com. Thanks so much.

i read this post through twitter and i know i had to stop by here and leave a comment with the computer!

i would very much love to see this happen again. my nursing home really loved the cards... they always ask 'are you coming back next year'? it's quite an experience to chat with the older folks and spend some time with them and watch them open a card. You can tell they really enjoy opening their cards! i'd be happy to help with any means. I will have to remember to take more detailed pics...let me know what you decide!

Vera you have mooooo-ved past any slump you might have had with this "utterly" cute card!!

Is that ironic that you struggle with your own sketch?? I love what you came up with and I loved playing along with it! Thanks for having me on the blog today.

I'd be interested in making cards for people in nursing homes. I wouldn't be able to drop them off (I had 2 grandparents NOT leave the nursing home, so I have lots of anxiety going into one). I would love to help promote or something else that would be helpful!

You did a wonderful job with your own sketch! Such a sweet pair there by the fence! I am in charge of our school's silent auction this fall and I'm feeling overwhelmed a bit as it's all new to me. Sorry, I wouldn't be good help.

Your heart is definitely in the right spot! I loved sending my Christmas creations to those who might not have gotten cards otherwise last year. I'd love to do some again this year. Thanks for working on this noble task in the past and please keep us in the know if you decide to continue it this year!
