Cards That Care - Blog Hop



Welcome to the Cards That Care Blog Hop! If you came from Savannah O'Gwynn's blog, you are on the right track. If you get lost at any time, just stop by Vera's blog for a complete list of participants. The card drive organised by two amazing ladies Vera and Jennifer is again to collect holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes. I hope you will consider participating in this worthwhile cause. Here are a few important details you need to know:

  • This card drive will be going on till November 31, 2011. We will need to receive your cards by November 31, 2011.
  •  Please make the cards for Christmas or Holiday Wishes. Anyone can send a card, your children, church group, scout troops, etc.
  • All cards need to have a message in it.  Please also sign your name and where you are from.  On the card envelope, write your name on the top left corner.  Also, please don't seal the envelope.
  • Please stick to just cards.
  • And please don't use any pins (safety reason).
  • You can mail the cards  to either one of us:
Jennifer McGuire
P.O. Box 428612
Cincinnati, OH 45242

Vera Yates
P.O Box 17596
Sugar Land, TX 77496  

  • In each package, PLEASE include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address and how many cards you sent.  This helps us in keeping track for prizes! For each card you send, you will get a chance.  So the more cards you send, the better your chances. 

To thank you for your generosity in supporting this drive, there are several PRIZES ready for several winners. The more cards you send the better your chances are. See HERE for full list of fabulous companies who support this card drive by donating awesome prizes.

There are also prizes up for grabs along the hop for participants. The more blogs you left comment on the better your chances are and you have the whole weekend to hop around and check out all of the creations (till Sunday, 11/6/11 midnight CST).

Here are my Christmas cards made for the drive. For the first card I used the cutie-pie Gnome stamp from Gnomies set by Sweet Stamp Shop:

Merry Christmas

Next is a card using the cute snowman from Vintage Christmas set by Jane’s Doodles:

Now, off to Donna Mikasa to continue the hop!
Have a great weekend!
