Sending You a Big Bear Hug

In an effort to "give back" and do my part to make a difference, I'm creating uplifting cards to donate to Card Care Connection, a non-profit organization that works with hospitals, hospices, senior agencies, nursing homes, and individuals to identify potential recipients who were diagnosed with cancer. 

In hopes to provide psychosocial support, comfort, and encouragement, they request cards that are general in nature and uplifting.  Click here to check out their website for more information, if you are interested in sharing your creativity and support.

Here is my first card......

OMG, January is almost over.  I better post the holiday cards I received from my super crafty friends.  Before you know it, it'll be Valentine's Day.

This classy card is by Eunice.  Her creations are so professionally made.  Inside is a pop-up photo of her family and the borders beautifully embossed.  So inspiring.

She also made this amazing calendar with such expertise.  BEAUTIFUL!!!!

This kawai'i card is by Lianne.  Super cute yah?  Wait till you see the inside..... it is, a pop-up with a bunch of Santa Claus'.  How cute is that?

Lianne also made this card.  It's flat in the envelope.

Pull the red tab and's becomes a stand-up card.  So clever!!!!

Love, love, love this darling scene with the little hedgie.  Super cute Shirley!!!  Adding the gold cord gives it a nice 3D effect.    

This card is from Cindy.  Love how she colored the image.  Very nice layout too.  :-)

Love this scene that Kathy created.  First word that came to mind is, "sweet." 

From my dear cuz, this neat card with a pop-up gift card holder on the inside.   Cute Santa DP!!!!
