More Cards for 'Caring Hearts Card Drive'

Hello Blog Friends ~
Gosh, I’m seeing so many gorgeous holiday cards lately, and since I keep using the same new Christmas stamps that I have, I think it’s time for me to get shopping :-)

Meanwhile, I created 2 more cards for the 2013 Caring Hearts Card Drive, which I am also submitting to this week’s Less is More Challenge. Our theme is ‘Trees’, so on the first card I used my Memory Box Die as a silhouette, and on the 2nd card I used my Hero Arts ‘Shari’s Tree #2’ stamp. I am also entering the '2nd’ card into the current Hero Arts Holiday Challenge
.

Here is my 1st card:


and, here is my 2nd card:






The deadline for the card drive is November 28th, so if you would like more information, please go to Jennifer McGuire's Blog

Well, that’s it for me today ~ Until next time...take care, and thanks so much for stopping by!
Barb
