Caring Hearts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop! Vera has invited us to share a holiday card today to help promote the card drive. I chose to create a simple Thanksgiving card.

If you came from Donna Mikasa's blog you are on the right track. If not, be sure to start at the beginning from Vera's blog, the organizer of this fantastic effort.

What is the Caring Hearts Card Drive? Vera Ling has put together a card drive to collect holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes, care centers and places of assisted living. With a host of sponsors including Wplus9 Design Studio, Lawn Fawn, Hero Arts, andSimon Says Stamp just to name a few, there are ton's of prizes to be won. And all you have to do is create a holiday card and send it to Vera. Be sure to visit her blog to get all of the details.

Now, off to Deirdre Hogan to continue the hop!

Project Supplies

Stamps: Season of Thanks (Wplus9)
Paper: Rustic Cream (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Summer Sun, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust (Stampin' Up!); Dark Brown chalk ink (Colorbox)
Other: Button (Papertrey Ink); Baker's twine (Martha Stewart Crafts)
