Caring Hearts Project

Just mailed 20 handmade cards to Caring Hearts Project.  The Caring Hearts Project was started by Vera Yates a Paper Crafting Artist in honor of her Mom’s request 8 years ago.  Last year 66,000 handmade cards were made by numerous paper crafters and card makers.  They were distributed to various nursing homes throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom.    As stated by Jennifer McGuire, a wonderful role model for Card Makers, “the holidays are about family, kindness and joy.  During this time, many of the elderly who live in nursing homes feel lonely.  This is a simple gesture that we can do to let them know they are not forgotten.”

I enjoy every minute creating the cards that I make.  It is great to also know that they will make someone’s day a little brighter.

 

Cards for Jacob

Found this request for handmade cards on one of the Facebook pages I follow.  This is why I love making cards.  I enjoy it so much and then to see how happy it makes the recipients makes it a double pleasure.  Jacob loves the Antarctica and Penguins but instead of Penguins I decided to use this Lawn Fawn stamp set that I love.  I also love making spinner cards.  They are a lot of fun.  Had to do a video also so it will perform the spin.
