HA Pairing Up & Simon Says Stamp

Today, I have quite a few cards to share with you. I started another Hero Arts pairing up challenge. This time I am pairing up with Hannah F. Nicole. And our theme for this week is thank you card. I have quite a few people to thank lately, so this theme is perfect.   You can check out Hannah's card here.


Next...., I am super duper delighted to be sharing my card at Simon Says Stamp Challenge for this week. They are kindly supporting Caring Hearts Card Drive and dedicated this week challenge to the cause.

For my card, I used this tree from Hero Arts. I love this stamp from the moment I saw it. You can color it for any season. The litle turkey is from Denami Design, one of the stamp that I received from Susan Opel (Paper Crafts). Thank you, Susan!

Crazy 4 Challenges - fall or autumn

Here's my second card. I haven't use much kraft paper. At first, I wasn't sure if I like it, but I think it starts to grow on me.

And, last card. On this one, I actually covered all the leaves with diamond glaze, added bakers twine and popped the turkey.

I do this card drive simply because I believe that everybody should have something that make them happy during the holiday. And it's been such a joyful experience  for me, too and I've always wanted to do something meaningful for kids and the elderly. Jennifer McGuire inspires me with her Cards for Kids (I do have several cards for this waiting to be mail out), so with both card drive I get to support cause that close to my heart.

And, what amazes me & warms my heart is the support from the card makers and blogging friends. Every time someone emailed me saying they want to participate, I am filled with so much gratitude. I am in awe of everyone's kindness.

Oh yes, if you have some extra cards for kids, please consider mailing some for Logan & Bekah. They have "Spina Bifida" and you can read about them here.
