This past Saturday, I gathered some of my Christmas craft supplies and convinced my gang at home to make some Christmas cards. Lots of groans and moans (I mean, really?? Make Christmas cards on a Saturday?? Their only day off?? What was I thinking??) Until I told them why I wanted to make Christmas cards as a family project. For the 2013 Caring Hearts Card drive, to make cards for the elderly people in the nursing homes. I really, REALLY wanted to do this when I first read about it on Jennifer McGuire's blog. I mean, really, what a great cause! Crafting for a cause cannot get any better! Once the cause was mentioned, no more groans. :)
I had gathered some of my 6x6 paper pads, the Christmas themed ones, that is. (believe it or not, I do not have many...huh! go figure!) Also, my 8x8 October Afternoon Make it Merry (that has got to be my FAVE!) I also got various Christmas themed stamps, inks, washi tapes, die cuts, little doo jiggers, and what-nots. I needed to inspire my boys!!!
I was very, VERY happy to realize they were having fun!!! Yippee!! And the best part? We got over 25 cards done! Here are some we did:
I had made a few too:
