"Heart to Heart" Card Drive


I hope you will all have a little time this weekend if you haven't already to participate in Cammie's "Heart to Heart Card Drive", collecting cards for the caregivers of patients with Alzheimer's (or if you don't know anyone personally , then for a caregiver at the Ardman Home where Carolyn's grandmother was a patient before she passed away in 2008.) You'll brighten someone's day by sending a card you made and you might even win a blog candy valued at almost $1000! Get full details on Carolyn's blog and see all the sponsors who donated and prizes included, you have until Sunday to enter!


Here is a simple card I made for it with "Buds and Vases". I stamped just the inked up outline of the glass vase onto this cool black wood grained pattern paper from the Basic Grey Granola pack. The wood vase lent itself to a very minimal design with clean lines, so the lilies from "A Year of Flowers" made the perfect arrangement. Mats are White, Soft Sand (embossed with Herringbone), and Black Onyx. Greeting is from "Lean on Me", which I thought was perfect for the caregivers, who give so much to be there for the patients and their families. Have a terrifc weekend!


Next up, my newest tip sheet!
