Great idea to give cards to people often forgotten.
That is true Greta, These amazing people often feels alone and forgotten and a small reminder that someone is thinking of them can really make a difference.
What a wonderful idea to give love to our older generation who so deserve it!
I agree Marni. Let’s spread love and kindness.
Thanks for hosting this wonderful event. What a great inspiration to help out this wonderful cause as I lost my mom last March of 2022.
We are so sorry to hear about your mom passing last year. At least through this event, you will be able to commemorate your mom in a way of giving to others.
Such a great way to honor our moms and pops.
It is indeed!
Fabulous idea and much
appreciated I’m sure!

I live in a nursing facility and I have a card ministry in which I remember those who seldom get mail or visitors or who are just needing some cheering up!
Thank you for sharing Verna.
Lovely card samples! Great idea that I use at my local retirement centers.
What a wonderful idea. I’m happy Altenew is including us in participating and giving back to seniors in New York. It’s wonderful when we show honor to older ones.
I live in a senior complex and make birthday cards for the residents. This is a great idea.
I really appreciate this company. Having worked in nursing homes, I love this project you have invited us participate in. Thank you!
I love the cause and truly appreciate all you do! The inspiration is phenomenal as always!
A beautiful card can really make someone’s day; thanks Altenew, for reminding me !
What a wonderful thing to do! So many people get joy from our cards!
What a wonderful idea!
I love the idea of Senior cards. Wonderful and thoughtful. Often forgotten.
So nice to see this, my Mom is in a care center, I make her cards to give as gifts and to send to family/friends herself.
Such a wonderful thing to do, to brighten the lives of our Seniors who are shut in and alone! Thank You to Altenew for thinking of them!
What a wonderful idea! Great new products.
Great idea and love how cardmakers always love to share handmade love and kindness
Such a lovely idea. I donate quarterly to Bring Smiles to Seniors, we cannot forget about our seniors!
Great collection of stamps, perfect for spring, birthdays, or Mother’s Day!
Also, I forgot to mention how much I love these simple floral designs, great for coloring!
What a great idea and what a nice blog hop!! Lots of incredible cards. Very generous.
Great idea and worthy cause. Nice blog hop.
Everyone loves getting a card in the mail to brighten their day!
Thank you Altenew for this great idea of sending cards to people who are often forgotten.
This is such a kind idea! Thank you for organizing it!
I’ve so enjoyed participating in this card drive over the past few years (I even won a gift certificate from one of your drawings!). It’s such a wonderful and worthy cause and, since my own parents are no longer with me, gave me such satisfaction. Unfortunately I’ve made a long cross-country move (from Texas to Vermont!) recently and I’m just now getting settled, so I haven’t been “creating” lately. When I get settled I plan to jump back into card making so, hopefully, I’ll be ready for next year. I wish you great success with this year’s drive.
What a wonderful idea and kind gesture! I know how much my Aunt enjoys getting cards – knowing that someone is thinking about her really brightens her day.
The Tulips..oh my so gorgeous
Love the tulips
Awesome idea! Beautiful cards!
I love this card drive! It means so much for those that are shut in to know someone thought of them. Looking forward to participating! And, also love all the card inspirations! Can’t wait to play with new goodies I just received!
Wonderful idea. Beautiful and creative card designs from everyone.
This is an awesome idea. I am looking forward to participating!
What a great idea! I lost my mom last April & was wondering what I should do with my mother’s day stamps. Now I know. Thank you!
thank you for helping seniors in need. There are
so many hungry people in this world. Your
selection of stamps for this hop is wonderful.
thanks for having the hop.
