Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop-----

Welcome to the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop where the name of the game is "caring" !!




This is stop #9 of 39- Yup it's a long one, so I hope you got some snacks & a bevy cuz we are gonna keep you hopping for a while!
If you came here from the crafty Cassie's blog, then you are on the right track.
Your next stop will be the dynamic Donna's blog.
If you stumbled across my blog by accident or good fortune today & wish to participate in this amazing blog hop, pls start at the beginning here!

***********************************

Whilst I was looking for challenges the other day, I stumbled across this blog that had an amazing thing going on......a card drive to collect CHRISTMAS, THANKSGIVING & HOLIDAY WISHES cards to send to elderly people living in care homes & assisted living complexes.



This drive is inspired by Vera's mom who said,
"Sometime as much as the elderly understand that it might be necessary for them to live in care center or nursing homes, it's still not an easy thing to be away from your family or being away from their home. It can be lonely and some of them might not even have anyone who would visit them. Would be nice if you can get a bunch of cards send to them".


Vera is hoping to collect cards & have them in her hand by November 15 in order to get them arranged for delivery for the appropriate holidays! She is giving away prizes, as well, for each card you send, the more times your name goes into the draws....................


For more information on this (ie- address of how & where to send your card, what to write inside the card, inventory list of sent items, etc)....... PLEASE CLICK HERE!

BUT...............

Dont' forget to continue hopping first, cuz
--some of the stops along the way are offering some candy of their own!!!
--and there are (random draw) prizes for those who participate and leave comments along the way!!

You don't wanna miss that!!!

My creation is a Thanksgiving card, specifically for a man.
If there is one thing I know, it's that there are never enough homemade cards for men, so this is my contribution to all the little old men out there!
The image is a freebie from Karen's Doodles & the sentiment I made on my computer.
I used my SU punch to punch out the sentiment & my fiskars corner punch to shape the corner of the picture & back blacking paper.
I used my new MS punch to punch the bottom of the orange & black paper....speaking of which, this paper is actualy a halloween digital design which I downloaded from the Bearly Mine Designs! There are a TON of beautiful digital papers over there that you need to check out, when you are done hopping here!!
The off-white Jute ribbon & the shimmery Satin Apple green ribbon are from Really Reasonable Ribbons!
The two flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.







This is my CTMH personalized stamp I always stamp the back of my creations with. Isn't it pirdy!!


NOW get hopping. you have a long way to go!!



Challenges for my card:
Stamp Something- digital image
The Stampman- Cards for Men
Simon Says Stamp- give thanks
Baby Bud designs- fall/halloween
Creative Belli Blog- pumpkins
Karen's Doodles- distress it
