These companies generously offer prizes for the hop: Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, Sweet Stamps Shop, Avocado Arts, & I Love It All.
I really love this Cards that Care drive. Such a great drive that Vera and Jennifer put together! The holidays can be a very hard time for people especially when they are alone. I can't imagine what is like for some elderly people who are alone in a nursing home, missing there family and not able to spend the holidays with them. I love making cards as I am sure you do too. The difference that a card can make for an elderly person in a nursing home makes making that card even more special. I really want to encourage you to take part. Even if you can only send in one card send it in, it will make a difference!
I wanted to play with the Hero Arts stamp bird on a tree and couldn't decide what colors to use so I made three with different colors:
The blue one is my favorite:
I stamped the bird on a tree in moss green, robins' egg, and cranberry pigment ink by colorbox. Added my favorite twine by the twinery colored in the birds and added a scalloped piece to the bottom! The cards a smidge smaller than regular size just to accommodate the image better.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Your next stop on the hop is Giovanna!
