A fortnight ago I read about Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire's Caring Hearts Card Drive and was determined to chip in. A dozen Christmas cards for the elderly in nursing homes - what a beautiful way to spread some festive cheer.
Alas, in true Asha fashion, "this" and "that" happened and all my good intentions leapt out the window and disappeared into the wilderness ... until I saw Stephanie's post. Must be the Universe giving me a kick in the posterior to get a move on those cards I so eagerly wanted to make.
|Terrible photo. Will try & get|
a better shot tmrw in daylight.
As promised, a dozen of my cards will make their way across the pond by 28 November. These will be quick to make and light to post. No bulky embellies nor over the top designs. Here's my first batch of cards for the Caring Hearts Card Drive.
I made 3 cards using stamps from the Little Pudding set by Clearly Besotted, the co-ordinating dies to cut out the bits and some Christmas twine by Doodlebug. And then I got bored. Single design mass production really isn't my thing. So watch out for more quick makes ... in batches of three!
Here are, hopefully, better photos of the same card.
|I ran a snowflake folder on one side to add texture on the plain cream CS.|
For mailing purposes, the card is flat except for the Dooblebug twine.
The greeting was stamped with Versafine Satin Red.
|A simple message on the inside.|
These puds are sitting pretty over at these challenges:

That's all from me. Thank you so much for stopping by. I'm off to bed now.... oh what a week it has been. So glad it's over and the weekend is finally here.
