Caring Hearts Blog Hop!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  I am delighted to be here as part of the Caring Hearts Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the talented Karen Baker!  I love that Vera does this card drive for elderly people in nursing homes!  The Holiday time can be a very lovely time for some of them and I do believe that our handmade cards can bring them so much joy!  For more information about the Caring Hearts Card drive please go here.  For more information on the blog hop please go here!

Here is my card that I created for this hop!  I am pretty sure this is my third year taking part of this hop!  :>


Don't you just love this cute snowman?  I sure do!  He's from the Snow Much Joy set by Hero Arts!  I also used the matching Frame cut to cut him out!  I paper pieced him and added jewels to his hat!  I used paper from My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland collection!  The snowflake is a die from My Favorite Things!  I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it too!  

What's a blog hop with no prizes?  Prizes have been generously provided by:  Bella Blvd, Hero Arts. Lawn Fawn, Avocado Arts, May Arts, Two Peas In A Bucket and Jennifer McGuire offer 2 online classes. 
We will pick winners randomly from comments left on participants blog. The more blogs you left comment on the better your chances. 
People have the whole weekend to leave comments (till Monday, 11/5/2012 midnight CST)


I am also hosting here on my blog a 12 Days of Holiday Card Inspiration!  You can check out my first card here.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Your next stop along the hop is my friend Virgina Lu!!!
