Caring Hearts Blog Hop & Reverse Confetti Sneak Peek


Welcome to the Caring Hearts Card Drive!
I'm thrilled with the chance to share some holiday inspiration with you today, especially for this wonderful cause!



Caring Hearts Card Drive is a card drive organized by Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire with the goal to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing home. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be so awesome if we can bring a smile to their face and brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten. 

The card drive is going on right now till November 28, 2014If you'd like to participate and send your cards for the card drive, please go to the post on Vera Yates or Jennifer McGuire blog for the card drive details.



Just leave comments till midnight CST Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014 to be entered into a prize drawing. Winners will be chosen randomly based on collective comments left on the designers's blogs. Be sure to leave loads of love for everyone!
