Cards That Care Blog Hop


Hello my friends!!! Today is a very especial day, my good friend Vera Yates is joining forces with the very talented Jennifer McGuire to collect cards for the elderly people.

We all love to make cards and I would love if you could send 1 or 20 or more to them so they can distribute to different Nursing Homes. You will bring a smile in those cute faces, guarantee!!
If you arrived here from Anita, you are in the right place.

Here are the cards I made. I used stamps from Heartfelt Creations.



A few important details:

  • 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                              Vera Yates
                 
       P.O. Box 428612
                                P.O Box 17596
                 
       Cincinnati, OH 45242                        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. 
I am the last name for this hop, if you have any questions, please visit Vera or Jennifer's blogs.

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win, great companies have donated prizes for you : Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, Sweet Stamps Shop, Avocado Arts, & I Love It All.

You have until Sunday November 6th to leave your comments, more comments, more chancees to win :)

 
Have fun hopping!! and have a great day.

Lovely cards, Giovona. And how great to have another reason to make cards. I know this will bring joy to so many in the nursing homes. Will get started as soon as I finish up another project I am working on.
