I love this idea of sending cards to homes. Here in Australia, I work with Cognitively impaired senior folks (early dementia and Alzheimers) and we make cads to stimulate their senses. It is so rewarding. Seeing their smiles is beyond heart warming.

What a great project! I have seen in my work how a simple card can lift someone’s spirits. Especially our elders in nursing homes who sometimes can be forgotten.
And I love all the bold blossoms I am seeing on the above cards—-beautiful!
