Such great inspiration on this hop. Thanks to all for participating. It’s a great reminder that cards are for giving, not just the fun of making.

Michelle Hackett March 24, 2022 - 7:48 PM

Giving cards, to me, is like giving a piece of myself. This is an important drive, because it targets a generation that used cards for all kinds of occasions, but also just for sending someone a note. I’m very excited to see all the designers creations.

Karen March 24, 2022 - 8:15 PM

What a beautiful idea of sending cards to moms & dads!
I can almost feel their excitement when opening a handmade card on their special occasion. I♥️Altenew !

Amy Kinler March 29, 2022 - 9:06 AM

I have been giving my extra cards to the retirement community close to me for the seniors to give to their families. Especially during COVID when they could not get out. I love seeing the smiles.
