Altenew Celebrate Parents Card Drive Blog Hop & Giveaway

** For my SugarPea Designs post please scroll down or click HERE **



Hi peeps and welcome to Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop & Giveaway. If you've been following the hop order, you should arrive here from Svitlana Shayevich blog.

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. As you may or may not know, I have run Caring Hearts Card Drive for years and brightening the lives of the people that lives in nursing homes is something that's close to my heart. Celebrating Parents is just  like Caring Hearts, but we send the cards for Mother's and Father's Day. Please check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in cards.

Now, for today's post, I have made 2 cards. Here's my 1st card using Best Dad Stamp & Die Bundle.




My husband is the inspiration for this card. He's a home builder, so all these tools totally reminds me of him. And, yes, he is also an amazing dad to our furry kids. :)

Next up is my 2nd card using the beautiful Best Mom set.




This set is such a gorgeous set & I love practicing  my watercolor on it.
