Caring Hearts Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Caring Hearts Blog Hop! The ♥ CARING HEARTS CARD DRIVE ♥ is an amazing card drive put together by Vera to bring holiday cards to senior centers. I just love this idea, and Vera was so wonderful and kind to come up with it!

We encourage you to participate in the drive, too! All of the details are here, and there are wonderful prizes for participating, also (including one from Lawn Fawn!)

There will also be prizes for commenters and participants of the hop that will be randomly chosen, so make sure to hop along to everyone’s blog. Since we have so many wonderful participants, you have until midnight (CST) Wednesday, 10/27/10 to leave comments and winners will be announced on Friday, 10/29/10 on Vera’s blog!

So you should have come from Kelly Bertram. If you are lost in the hop, you can always start here!

Okay, on to a fun card! My grandfather loves interactive cards. He just gets a kick out of them! So I thought I would try to make something like that!

I decided to use a glassline bag from It’s in the Bag! for my little pocket card! Then I put a mini card on the inside that can be pulled out. The cool thing is this bag could be used to store little trinkets or whatnot afterwards!


Here they are separated. I used Cosmo Cricket papers and let that dictate the colors I used for the project! I am loving the purple scarf on Winter Bunny!

I thought the traditional images of Bows and Holly would be nice. I added some sparkle to the present’s bow with a Spica pen and I love the mistletoe from Bows and Holly in the corner as if Winter Bunny is speeding off to find his Christmas love!

I really hope this will put a smile on someone’s face this Holiday season!

  1. Great idea and I may use this as inspiration for some Christmas gifts for my family this year. Seen so many Lawn Fawn stamps during the blog hop and they are wonderful. 🙂

  2. Kelly Marie, this is SO adorable! I love the idea of the little pocket card in the bag. Really cute. And I think Mr. Winter Bunny has never looked prettier. In fact, I think maybe he's actually Ms. Winter Bunny today! ;o)

  3. Okay it doesn't get any cuter than this. Now I'm off to buy some of those bags. Thank you for helping to make the holidays happier for our senior citizens.
