Caring Hearts Blog Hop


Hello friends!
A bunch of us are getting together today to share some information of how to make someone's day extra-special.  Caring Hearts sends handmade cards to elderly people who live in nursing homes.  Fabulous cause, right?   You can find out all of the details HERE.  

Please visit their HOME BASE to see a bunch of prizes that can be won.  Just leave a comment along the blog hop path for your chance to win!  You have until midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 12th to comment.

I created a coordinating card and gift bag set using our Poinsettia dies and a sentiment from Christmas Sampler stamp set.  I bent the flower petals and leaf dies with my fingernail to add dimension.


You should have arrived from Emily Branch's blog

Your next stop is:  Kim Kesti's blog

I hope you have fun!
smooches!
Kim
