"Creating Cards for a cause" Day 3 of 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration

Today is all about giving on my blog.
There is just something special about this time of year that makes people dig deep for not only love ones but strangers alike.  This year with all the changes going on in my families personal life, we don't have much to go around.  But what we do have, we share.

 Everything you see on these cards were from my stash (most free product from DT work) and for a very good cause.  This year my IG/Blog friend at Sweetland Paper Treats put out a call for a card drive by klusivekreations.blogspot.com.  It in partnership with a doll drive for children in the hospital for the holidays.  I was glad to make these cards for the "Make a Keiki Smile Card Drive".

Another awesome card drive is "The Caring Hearts Drive" run by Vera Yates of Ling's Design blog.  She along with her partners holds a card drive for the elderly in care homes for the holidays.  This year she even added a Canadian partner and maybe next year the world?!?

NOTE: Both these card drives are now close for 2013 but be sure to follow their blogs to get a jump on all you can do to help next year.
(Products used: Awesome May Arts Ribbon, Echo Park Paper pattern paper in Very Merry Christmas & super adorable stamps from Deasy Designs)
