Hello there and welcome to the Caring Hearts blog hop! You should have come to me from Sarah's blog. If you haven't, please check out Vera's blog so you don't miss a single post!
The Caring Hearts Blog Hop is put together every year by Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire with the hopes to collect lots of beautiful Christmas cards to share with the elderly in nursing homes. I know from experience how lonely these folks can be. My mom used to work in a nursing home and we'd go visit all the time. A lot of these sweet people have no family to come visit them and are really lonely during the holidays. I love the idea of being able to share my passion of cardmaking to help brighten there day, if only for a few minutes.
The theme is Christmas and Holiday cards, and here is my card using lots of NEW UNRELEASED product from Reverse Confetti!
I created this fun shaker card using some new goodies, that I can't talk about just yet! The new release sneak peeks start on the 6th, so come back in a few days to learn more!
I watched this video of Jennifer's to create my own shaker card. It's my first one and I must admit that I am hooked and plan on making lots more!
I also created a matching envelope from a clear acetate envelope and the Envelope Wrap die from Reverse Confetti.
The "deliver to" stamp and coordinating polka dot stamps are from Roundabout, and I've also used the circle dies from Circles 'n Scallops.
