Hi and welcome to Cards That Care blog hop! Cards That Care is run by the sweet & fabulous Jennifer McGuire and me. Our goal is to collect as many cards as we can for the elderly who lives in nursing homes.
And, for your support & generosity, we have many offer many prizes as well. You can find all the details for the card drive HERE or by clicking on the badge. Just a reminder: you have till Nov. 30, 2011 to send your cards.
Now, to help promote the card drive, we're hosting a blog hop. We have quite a few fabulous & generous sponsors for the hop (see below for complete list of prizes) and you have the whole weekend to complete the hop. So, make sure you leave your comment by Sunday, Nov. 6, midnight CST. We will pick the winners from comments left on the participants blogs. So, the more blogs you left comment on, the better your chances are.
I made a couple cards for this hop. Here's a look at the first one, using stamps from my favorite companies. The cat is from Penny Black, background from Hero Arts, & sentiment from Papertrey Ink. BTW, Penny Black & Hero Arts were the among the first stamps I owned when I started stamping back in '97. And, yes.... still love them to this day!!
Lots of layers on the cat & wreath image. Looks more 3D if you see it in person. Next, is another CAS card using another favorite of mine, the Lawn Fawn stamps. I used the masking technique for this card & used stardust stickles for the snowy hill.
Now, are you ready to hop? From here, you'll hop to the gal that everyone know as the stamp guru, Jennifer McGuire. I am sure you'll find fab inspiration from her blog.
Here's the complete list of the hop participants:

That kitten is sure to bring a smile. I got my cards done early, guess it would have been nice to have gotten some ideas from the blog. Thank you so much for doing this. My Mom spent 2 years in a nursing home and we always appreciated groups who came and did things for the elderly.Verona

Loving this card drive and the blog hop :)
Beautiful cards - I love the simplicity of the Xmas cheer one.
Cute cute cards!! This is a great thing you are doing! Thank you
thanks for participating, and for the inspiration. holidays are hard when you're alone in a nursing home, so I'm hoping we get alot of cards to share...
Great ideas...off to hop on the card making tour.
Hats off to you for caring in such a way as this for some pretty amazing people. I use to work in a Seniors Home and it was so sad to see that some of the most inspiring and wisdom filled people could be forgotten. The lonely days can be so difficult for them and to receive a card from someone telling and showing them how important they are, will surely make a great impact. God Bless you in your mission here to touch the hearts of seniors. I will send you some cards as well sweetie. Hugs.
Sweet cards Vera and superb cause. I wasnt here but will be sending you a mail shortly.
love both of your cards, especially the CAS,
Cute cards, love them. What a great cause.
I love the snowman card! So simple and cute.
Too much fun.........hop, hop, hop.:)
What a sweet way to let Te elderly know they are still remembered!
So glad you're doing this card drive again this year, Vera! I'll definitely be sending cards again!
Love both your cards - great layering on that cute cat and wreath image and the awesome CAS winter friends! Fantastic prizes, too!
