SPARKS & Card Drive Update

Hi everyone. How was your Thanksgiving weekend? We had a lovely one at  my SIL place and of course as usual eat way too much! My SIL is such a good cook and I am very lucky that I do not have to cook anything. Hah... for our part, hubby made his famous seven layer salad that's always a hit.

Anyway, I was slacking big time in keeping my blog up-to-date. This week should be a busy one with new challenge from Paper Smooches SPARKS, SOG new releases, card drive update, etc.

Here's the inspiration picture.

I used the color combo from this pic for my inspiration and here's the result. 

You have one week to play along. You can check all the details and find more inspiration HERE.

Now, how about some update for Caring Hearts card drive. First, a little re-cap. This card drive goal is to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing home. As you might remember, this card drive is the result of my mom's suggestion. And now the card drive is on its 3rd year. Last year, I was blessed to have Jennifer McGuire as my partner on this. This year, I am back to running it solo again and my goal is to reach at least 1000 cards.

So far, I have collected 839 cards. If you need more information on the card drive or would love to participate, simply click on the card drive logo on the upper right corner. Even if you can only send 2-3 cards please send them in. 

And, here's pic of my lovely mom with some of the cards that we have received. She's the reason and the inspiration for this card drive and since she was here, of course I cannot pass the opportunity to have her pose with the pile of cards. ;) She and I thank you for your kind and generous support for the card drive.

As always, if you have any last minute question about the card drive please email me: wirianta at hotmail dot com.

Have a wonderful day everyone and may your week starts off in a fabulous way.
