Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop



As many of you will already know Vera aka Ling's Design Studio is collecting Thanksgiving cards and Chistmas cards to send to the elderly. This blog hop is to encourage you ALL to join in and send a card or 2 to this worthwhile cause :-)You can find all the details on this post
CARING HEARTS CARD DRIVE


If you arrived here from the lovely Lin's Blog then you are going in the right direction, if not you may wish to start at the begining on Vera's Blog




I decided to make a Christmas card because I have made a Thanksgiving card already :-) I followed the fab sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge. I used my lovely Magnolia Snowy with Snowflake stamp, coloured with copics and Diamond Dust and Star Dust Stickles added for sparkle :-) The papers are a free download from the lovely Martine's blog ,,, these are from last year so you may need to scroll back a bit ! :-) The snowflake is a Spellbinders die cut ,,, this must be one of my best buy's ,, I use this all the time !!



edited ,,OH NO !!! I justr realised that I forgot to add some polar white flower soft to his hat !! I was waiting for the stickles to dry before adding it ,, and then I forgot !! It is already in the post to Vera ,,, so ,, Vera , when it arrives can you please just add sparkle to his hat for me :-) ,, thanks xx

The next stop is the fabulously talented Mandy, I am sure she will have a gorgeous card to show you :-)

Enjoy the hop and please don't forget to make a card or 2 :-)
