Happy Thursday. I promised to let you have the details of the card drive for 2015. I have created a pdf for you and have also put the details in my blog post.
As you have until October 3rd to get your cards to me - lots of time after kiddies go back to school :-), please could I ask you to leave me a comment - or send me a quick email - and let me know whether you will be participating. It helps to give me an idea of how many of my wonderful blog readers will be helping - it also helps to encourage others who read my blog when they see that you are donating your time and tremendous talents.
These are two fabulous charities and you know that your cards will be very much appreciated. If you need a reminder of how much they will be appreciated - all you need to do is click this link. If you are submitting cards for Cards for Hospitalized Children - don't forget the teenagers as well as the younger kiddos :-)
So.... here are some of the details
When do we have to have cards to you?
Please have your cards with me by October 3 2015 - with unsealed envelopes
What type of cards are required?
Please check the following links for details on the types of cards being requested from these two organizations:
Cards for Hospitalized Kids have recommendations on general cards as well as holiday cards.
The October 3rd deadline means that you can include Halloween cards as well as holiday cards, Christmas Cards, Hanukkah, etc. Remember that a lot of the recipients will be young children, so gear your holiday cards to the right age group :-)
Feel free to sign your first name an an uplifting message on the inside of the card. No personally identifiable information. Remember to check the website for full details.

Will you be offering prizes again this year?
Of course! I know that the prizes are not why you support my card drives, but it is a way to show you my thanks. The number of prizes on offer will depend on how many of you tell me that you will be helping out.
To get you thinking - here's another card I made with the Hero Arts Lil Hoot stamp set. I made this one with a more feminine vibe - and used color I never usually use. I added a little sparkle and shine by adding some Distress Glitter to the Embossing Paste Cloud.
Here's my card:
I used the Stampin' Up! Woodgrain background stamp to add some interest to the base of the card. I stamped it with Perfect Plum. I stamped the image onto Xpress Copic paper and colored it with my Copic markers. I fussy cut around it and mounted it to this tag.
I do hope you will join me again this year.... I'll be back with tomorrow with my Addicted to CAS card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you that a need a little lift tonight.
