A Wonderful Christmas

Hi peeps. How’s thing going. Vera here today. In case you miss it, I am hosting my 7th annual Caring Hearts Card Drive. The purpose of this card drive is to collect handmade holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing home.

I started this card drive back in 2010 and throughout the year we have grown quite a bit. We are now covering nursing homes in the US, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom. For more details on the card drive, you can check it out HERE. There’s also prizes and The Ton is one of the generous company that sponsor the prizes. I hope you will participate.

Now, since I am in need of Christmas cards, for the card drive as well as for my personal use, I figure I better keep working on growing my Christmas card stash. For my card today, I am playing with the beautiful Poinsettia Garden Cling Background set.

I stamped and heat embossed the image on a piece of watercolor cardstock and then color them with ZIG Real Clean Brush watercolor marker. This time I go with red & purple color theme. Yep, not quite your typical Christmas color. I like being different. Hah! 😉

For the sentiment I combine Basic Labels with Christmas word die from Holiday Word Dies collection.

Next time, I’ll try to do classic color combo. No promise, though. I like having fun with colors in my card making. After all, we continue doing it because it’s fun, right? Well, that’s all from me today, peeps. Cheers….

Vera
