Cards that Care

There is a blog hop starting today to help promote a card drive to make Christmas cards for elderly that live in nursing homes. Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire are sponsoring the drive. If you love to make Christmas cards this is a wonderful way to make cards that will be sent to people in nursing homes and add a little holiday cheer to their Christmas season. Vera explains it all so well, so if you want all the details for the card drive go here
If you've never been on a blog hop before, it starts with a post that tells you about the hop and gives you a link to the next stop. Sometimes you are visiting someone's blog and find out the are  a participant in a blog hop. You become intrigued and want to follow the hop from the start, so they also have a link to where you can start from the beginning. Be sure to leave a comment to let them know you stopped by. Sometimes they have a drawing from all the comments for a prize. One way to explain a blog hop is that it's like a blog tour. Sort of like a tour of homes that is so popular during the Holidays. Usually you're seeing blogs you have never seen before (at least one or two) and many times they are supporting a good cause.
The Cards that Care hop has many blog stops and each will be posting a handmade Christmas card. It's a good way to see a wide variety of cards and techniques. I am looking forward to spending my spare time this weekend visiting the many sites, working on Christmas Cards for the drive and working. Yes, I am working every day this weekend, but I don't want to miss this.  If you want to go on the blog hop start here.
