Caring Hearts Blog Hop


 Thanks for joining us today in the Caring Hearts Blog Hop.  If you have come from Teri's blog, you are in the right spot!  If not, head back to Vera's at the start!

The holidays are about family, about kindness, and joy. 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.

For my first card, I used Avocado Arts Stamps paired up with Echo Park's Season's Greetings, & Dots & Stripes Christmas collection cut with Spellbinders S4-368 Hexagon dies.  I finished it off with a single gem.

For my second card, I used Basic Grey's Nordic Holiday line along with the Sweet Folk Art dies from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from JustRite stamps Deck the Halls.
