A Day For Daisies

If you're looking for my Denami Blog Hop post please clik HERE or scroll down. Thank you.

Hi peeps, how's your weekend? Another Caring Hearts update. This Saturday, my friend Leslie and I went to the nursing homes to deliver Caring Hearts Card package to the resident. Some of the residents totally light up when they saw the card. One gentleman, his face just totally light up, he's so excited over his card & I heard him saying, "This is so pretty." That warms my heart.

On the other hand, I have to say I was quite disappointed with the administrative/nurses that were there. We had to wander around the place trying to find the residents, while the nurses we did see, just kept chatting around with one another. This place is currently being sue for neglect. :( I decided to still support this place, because I believe the residents probably really, really need the cheer even more. I pray that even if in the smallest way, our cards help brighten their days. Seeing this in person, I truly want to reach more places next year.

Move on to card, I am excited to announce that I am joining A Day For Daisies DT. They have such whimsical design that I fall in love with their image as soon as I saw them. To celebrate my new adventure, here's a card I made using "Christmas Pixie Two" that you can download for free from A Day For Daisies challenge blog

Only two more days before my trip. Eekk... So many things to do, so little time. I'm excited & trying to calm my nerves down. Long flight always make me nervous. :) Sometime, it's mind boggling to think wow, in 2 days, I'll be flying and be on the opposite side of the world. I don't take things for granted, I am quirky I guess that even stuff like that sometime makes me wonder in appreciation. Can you imagine back to the day when the only mean of transporation was train or ship. Goodness, how long it'd take to go to the opposite side of the world? 

Okay, I'll stop rambling. Thank you all for stopping by! May your week starts fabulously!

Adorable card! My brother is a nurse at a nursing home in Erie, PA where I'm from. He used to work in a place where they were neglecting the residents. It was very hard for him. He has a spot in his heart for every one of the residents he takes care of. From what I used to see, any time anyone went out of their way to pay attention to one of the residents, it meant so much to them!

Gorgeous card, Vera, congrats on the DT post! Very sad about the nursing home - that means the residents need something to cheer them up even more.

Congrats on your new DT, Vera! So glad our cards can bring some cheer to the residents, especially if they are being neglected. Hope the next 2 days go by quickly for you so you can be on your way to seeing your family!
