Cards that Care Blog Hop...



Hello,

I am so glad you stopped by today! A group of us wanted to get together and make a holiday card to spread the word about this great event called the Cards that Care Blog Hop. Cards that Care is an event to collect handmade holiday cards for the elderly to distribute at nursing homes. You can find all of the information here. You should have arrived here from Cathy. 

Guess what! There are fun prizes to be won just for browsing the blog hop and leaving comments. Winners will be randomly drawn from all of the comments left throughout the hop. Don't forget, the more blogs you leave comments on, the better your chances of winning. Some of the prizes include products from companies like Lawn Fawn, Penny Black, Sweet Stamp Shop, Avocado Arts and I Love It All! You have until this Sunday @ midnight CST to leave comments.

The next stop along the hop is Christy. If for any reason you get lost along the way, you can see a full list of participants at Vera's blog.

Thanks for hopping by!
Brandi
