Caring Hearts Card Drive

I recently came across another card drive for a very worthy cause. It is called the Caring Hearts Card Drive, and this time, cards are being sent to elderly people in nursing homes and care facilities who may not have their loved ones close by this holiday season. The drive is being organized by Vera Yates of Ling's Design Studio. I hope you will consider making a Thanksgiving or Christmas card to send. You have until early November, since the cards don't have to be received Vera until November 15th.

I have a Thanksgiving card and a Christmas card to share for this card drive.

I know I shared a very similar card recently. I am in love with this stamp and this design, and so I made a bunch of these cards at once. This one in particular was stamped and glued by me, and then very thoughtfully decorated by my awesome husband. He didn't have anyone he wanted to send it to, and I didn't want to sell it, so I suggested sending it to the card drive. He may even be writing the note that goes inside it! He's so sweet to be interested in the things that mean a lot to me.

And here's my card for the drive. I've been wanting to try a "faux window" card for a while now, and I love this stamp for the technique. You can't really tell but I put sparkles on the trees with a Sakura Stardust pen, and the white layer is embossed with a snowflake Cuttlebug folder. We're having a lot of rain here lately, and they don't anticipate it going away for a few days, so I hope you'll pardon the lousy pictures. :)

So again, please consider making a card or two (or more!) and sending it to this worthy cause. You can find all the details in Vera's blog, or by clicking the Caring Hearts badge at the top right of my blog.

Oh yeah, and not that you need the external motivation, but there are some pretty awesome prizes too! :)
