Caring Hearts Blog Hop!


Hello! Today I'm joining some remarkably talented crafters for the Caring Hearts Blog Hop!


Here's a little info about the card drive from Vera:

Caring Hearts Card Drive is a card drive organized by Vera Yates & Jennifer McGuire with the goal to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing home. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be so awesome if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten. 

The card drive is going on right now till November 28, 2014If you'd like to send your cards for the card drive please go to this post on Vera Yates or Jennifer McGuire blog for the card drive details.

I've used some Reverse Confetti for my card today, and if you're a 'Fetti Fan like I am, you'll spot some new goodies on this card! More about those snowflakes, the border and the sentiment SOON - the November release will be available on the 8th! Till then, you can see even more peeks in this post on the Reverse Confetti Blog

As well as some new goodies, I've used the wonderful Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts, and used the Tag Me Confetti Cuts as a background layer. The papers are from Echo Park and I finished with a seam binding bow and some bling.

Here's a peek inside my card:
