Cards That Care Report

Hi peeps! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I spent all Saturday morning sorting and packing cards for Cards That Care. I am super duper thrilled to report that we collected over 3800 cards!!! My scrapbook room floor was  totally covered as I pack the cards for shipment.

More  than quadruple the amount of card that I received last year. I can't thank Jennifer McGuire enough for agreeing to teaming up with me. And huge thanks to Jana Millen as well for helping us and to all  the ladies who help us distributing the packages. We're bringing joy to at least 19 nursing homes across the States and Canada. When I found out the total amount, my heart just swell.

I mean, in this tough economy, so many of you still willing to help and donate for this cause. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I appreciate your participation very much. Giving back to the community is important  to me and the fact that I am able to do this by doing what I love (card making) makes it even more awesome.

As for the prizes, please bear with us. It's quite a bit of work to line up everything. We're working on finalizing everything. Should be able to announce soon. Between holiday, work, etc., there's just not enough hours on the day. :)

Now, after the update, how about a fun card? I needed a break from some serious stuff that's going on in my personal life, so I decided to make a funny card. I made this card for Moxie Fab Random Fun challenge.  As I was thinking what sentiment to make, mustache-licious came to mind. :)

Next, is a  CAS card. This one is for Moxie Fab Pay It Forward challenge. Super simple but I believe in less is more. What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by here and thank you again from  the bottom of my heart for supporting our card drive. You are awesome.
