Cards That Care


Happy Friday ladies 
(and gentleman.... like my husband 
or my Dad... :) 
You should be arriving here from 


If you are new to this hop please 
take a moment and start 


There is lots of prizes and goodies 
(even some 'Sweet Stamp Shop' ones) 
For those who participate! 



Let me take a short moment and let you 
in on a little bit about 'Cards That Care'
Basically, it's this really awesome drive that 
Vera Yates started to deliver holiday cards to 
the elderly in nursing homes. 

Vera is a *sweetheart* and a 'fan' of 
all things 'Sweet Stamp Shop'... so when
she asked if we might want to participate 
I told her I couldn't think of a place we'd 
rather be then supporting her and this drive. 

If you would like more of the details 
of how the drive started, where to send cards, 
and what to do... 


I'm so happy to show off one of the cards 
I'll be sending Vera's way for this drive. 
I used our very own 'Tree Traditions' set


I *love* this festive card... 


I plan to make lots more (an assembly line) 
and send them to Vera! I hope you might send some 
too! I know together we can brighten the holiday's 
of lots of nursing homes! 


 Like I mentioned before... there is *lots*
of prizes involved in this hop and in the drive.

We're happy to have sponsored prizes for both...

Wanna win something?

Here's how:

For the blog hop... comment
on as many blogs as you can and
winners will randomly be selected.

You have the whole weekend to hop
and comment ... so no rush!

Send in those holiday cards for another
chance at great prizes! Yep, Vera is randomly
picking prize winners from those whom donate
cards! How exciting!

Whew, I'm sure I wrote too much!

Thanks for hanging in there with me...

Check out all our 'sweetness'
at our --



Now you're off to one of my 
most favorite people and an 
amazing crafter... 



Thanks for reading... stopping by... and supporting!

I have the *sweetest* customers and fans around! 

Big Hugs and Happy Weekend!
Nicole
