Cards that Care Blog Hop

Hi Friends

I cannot believe I’ve not posted all week. Wow, I’ve been a bad blogger. Well, I’m excited to be posting today and be part of the Cards that Care blog hop. The super sweet and talented Vera put this together with the wonderful Jennifer McGuire. They are organizing a holiday card drive to take to nursing homes. Isn’t that just the sweetest idea? I am so honored to help with this effort.

In honor of this card drive, they’ve put together this Cards that Care blog hop to spur interest and give away some prizes. There are all kinds of talented designers who will be showcasing some beautiful projects. If you’ve been hopping along, you should’ve arrived from my wonderful and talented friend, Laurel. If you’ve just arrived, head on over to Vera’s blog to start at the beginning.

Now, here’s the card I created for the hop:

DSC_0284

I broke out some Lawn Fawn stamps for this card. I used Making Frosty Friends, Hats off to You, and Cozy Christmas. I put it with some Collage Press patterned paper. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but on the white fur of the hat, I used some fun flock.

Now, I mentioned prizes before? All you have to do is comment on the blogs participating in the hop and random winners will be drawn. Interested in some of the goodies up for grabs? How about:

Avocado Arts, Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts, Jennifer McGuire (A spot in her upcoming Holiday Boot camp class), Mami Doodles, May Arts, Penny Black, and Monika Wright’s I Love it All. Some pretty good stuff! Vera’s blog has all the details of the prizes.

Next up on the hop is the amazing Melania Deasy

Have fun, good luck, and have a great weekend.

Hugs and blessings

Nette
