One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Cards that Care

My 8 Year Old Grand daughter, Lily came over this afternoon and I suggested we make cards for the "Cards that Care"...Jennifer McGuire and Vera Yates are sponsoring this...we make Christmas cards and send it to them by November 30 and they will distribute the cards to nursing homes..

Copied from Jennifer's blog:
You know what they say… “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” But for the elderly living in nursing homes, the holidays can sometimes cause loneliness as they are away from family. Wouldn’t it be fabulous if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten…
We hope that many of you will help and join us in our effort to spread joy & cheer.
A few important details:

  • We will need to receive your cards by November 30, 2011.
  • Please make the cards for Christmas or Holiday Wishes. Anyone can send a card, your children, church group, scout troops, etc.
  • All cards need to have a message in it.  Please also sign your name and where you are from.  No need to put anything on the front of the envelope. Also, please don’t seal the envelope.
  • All size cards are ok. Just please send them in an envelope.
  • Please stick to just cards.
  • And please don’t use any pins (safety reason).
  • You can mail the cards  to either one of us:

  • In each package, PLEASE include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address and how many cards you sent.  This helps us in keeping track for prizes! For each card you send, you will get a chance at a prize.  So the more cards you send, the better your chances.
