Altenew - Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop

** For The Ton Stamps Spring Release Sneak Peek Day 1 please scroll down**



Hi and welcome to Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Altenew Blog. I am honored to join Altenew on this card drive hop. When Altenew planning this card drive, they reach out to me since the goal of his card drive is just like my Caring Hearts Card Drive. But instead of collecting holiday cards, Celebrating Parents Card Drive goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. What a great cause, right?

You can check out all the details about the card drive HERE. I hope you will join us and send in some Mother's Day ad Father's Day cards.

For this card drive, Altenew is releasing a special collection of 3 new stamp sets (Best Dad, Best Mom and Penned Rose) which would be perfect for creating Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards. They are available in the store starting today. These stamp sets were designed especially for the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and 20% of the profits earned by Father’s Day will be donated.

I made a couple cards for this hop. First up is this soft beauty using the new Best Mom set.




In person, this card has a very pretty shimmer to it since I used Spectrum Noir Shimmer on all the flowers and leaves. Here's a close up look that showed some of the shimmer.




Next is a Father's Day card that I made using Ori KamiInvisible Alpha set. I can't believe how long this alpha set been sitting in my drawer. I bought them with the intend to use them on my scrapbook page, but I haven't get to my scrapbook page, yet, so it's been sitting there waiting to be used. And boy, it is fabulous!




Altenew is collecting the cards till April 26, 2016. So, you still have plenty of time to join. Let's make this card drive a successful one. Thank you for your support and thank you for stopping by here. From here, your next stop is Svitlana Shayevich blog.



  



Of course, no hop is complete without prizes. There are TWO $50 gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly from the comments left on the Altenew blog by Thursday April 8th, and we’ll announce two winners on Sunday, April 10.

Also, on my end, I am giving away a $30 gift certificate to Altenew store. Simply leave a comment here and I'll announce the winners here on 4/10/2016. Good luck and happy hoping!
