Cards that Care blog hop!!

Welcome to my stop along the Cards that Care blog hop!
You know about Cards that Care right??!
Jennifer McGuire and Vera Yates have teamed up to do a card drive to collect holiday cards for the elderly who live in nursing homes.
And they created Cards that Care!
The fun part is that you can participate!
Make some holiday cards, send them to Vera or Jennifer, brighten someone's day, and have the chance to win some prizes!
Yippee!!
Learn all the details about the card drive {here}.
There are lots of great companies sponsoring the card drive.
And you can win some of their great prizes 2 ways: 1) make some cards and 2) visit the blogs along this hop, leave comments, and they will pick winners randomly from comments left on the various blogs.
You have until Sunday at midnight to leave comments on the blogs!
Check {here} for a complete list of all the participating blogs.
Then get to card-making!
Here is a bit of inspiration to get you started:
Supplies: patterned paper, chipboard (Bella Blvd), jewels (KI Memories)
****
Now head on over to the fabulous Loredana Bucaria's blog for your next stop!
And after Loredana, hop on over to the lovely Deanna's blog!
{for a complete list of all those participating in the hop click here}
Don't forget to leave a comment and get to making some cards!
