Oh, drat! It’s time to shut down the computer and get on with my day! But I will be back to enjoy the hop and drool over some product at lunch-time (or when I need to take a break and sit a while!!!—Hmmmm. I think I feel a back ache coming on!! :-)) ) Thanks so much for all the inspiration.

WOW1 WHAT AN AWESOME HOP WITH ALL THE CREATIVE DESIGNERS! I HAVE THE STMAPS NOW I JUST NEED TO GET BUSY, THANK YOU FOR OFFERING TO DO THIS DRIVE, A WELL WORTHWHILE ONE. I TAKE MANY CARDS TO THE VA HOME AND OTHER NURSING HOMES IN MY AREA, SO I WILL CONTINUE TO DO THIS WITH YOU IN MIND AND USING SOME OF YOUR STAMPS SETS. THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!
Such a great cause! Love the dad set! So many great examples.
Fab cards and great ideas
what a great cause to support and i love your cards!
Great cards and an opportunity to support a great cause. Thanks for sharing these cards.
Gorgeous cards. Thanks for the ideas.
This sounds like such an incredibly worthwhile card drive. My Mom unfortunately had a deep brain hemorrhage at 52, and had to spend her remaining years in a group home due to her medical needs. I wanted nothing more than to be closer to her (she was 3000 miles away) more often, but we were separated for so many special occasions. I know that she would have appreciated some special attention beyond what my sister and could give her. I am very inspired to make some cards using these beautiful examples for inspiration.
Thank you for motivating us to make someone’s day with a special card, (no matter the occasion!)

What a fabulous cause that will brighten someone’s day!!
Wonderful cards and I am glad to see you are doing this card drive again this year!
Such beautiful cards !
These cards are fabulous!! I specially love the ninja card; so fun!!
Beautiful cards. Love that Ninjaneer! Too cute.
Really great cards – the floral in the first card is colored so richly and my favorite dad card is the tool box with the great paint platters of blue and green!
Love these sets and these cards. That engender set is so cool! I wish I knew some engineers just so I can make cards with this set. ??
These cards are so awesome! I LOVE the gorgeous rose!
I am just crazy about that engineering stamp set because my hubby is a mechanical engineer and these images and sentiments just crack me up! Love the idea of a card drive for those who would really appreciate them
Sad that the Extra Special stamp set is not part of the sale. I am saving for it. It has such great sentiments. I live far away from my Mom now and I miss her so much.
Amazing initiative and gorgeous inspiration!
Enjoyed the wonderful hop for a great cause. Thanks for the inspiration.
Fantastic work from the design team!Fabulous cards!For a very good cause as well!Thank you Altenew!
I waiting for my layered die covers to arrive so i can get busy with great ideas.
Love your cards! These are some awesome stamps sets and a great cause!
seems like I love all thing altenew- this give-away is no exception!!!!
what at nice thing to do!
What a great blog hop. I always struggle with masculine themed cards and the fabulous designers had so many great cards to inspire. Thanks.
The Mother’s Day card would look beautiful alongside a beautiful bouquet. Nice job. What a great community service sending cards to seniors in nursing homes. Commendable.
Another mind blowing hop! I always leave an Altenew hop filled with inspiration and the desire to go create immediately! I am hoping that I feel well enough to get into my craft room to create a bunch of cards to send in for this awesome cause! Thank you for the hop and putting this event together! TFS!
