Welcome to Altenew’s annual Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop!

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are approaching and this can be a difficult time for seniors who are in nursing homes or shelters. We want these important people to feel loved, celebrated, and honored, so we have organized the Celebrating Parents Card Drive (visit the link for more details).

Here is a card I created to celebrate. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the products I used!

Beautiful card! That stamp set is gorgeous. So good to think of our seniors, especially when the frailest are so isolated.

What a beautiful card for your Grandma. I can just see her beaming face aglow with love and pride for you Jennifer!
I love all your work and videos!
Our Dads are both gone now, but I’d love to make my step dad, “Papa” a beautiful card for fathers day. I hoping to have the Altenew letters that lay well together and another stamp/die set to go with that.
Thank you for your inspiration,
Lora from Michigan

In these trying times, think how lonely so many people must be. No visitors or contact with loved ones. A card will certainly bring a smile to their face. Card makers have a lot of heart.

This is the perfect way to send love to those who feel the most isolated right now, and also the perfect way for everyone everywhere who are looking for a way to lift others up! Thank you so much for hosting this and for all the inspiration! I can’t wait to get creating!
