Altenew - Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed and you can find the winner HERE

 
Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop! If you came here from Yana's blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to Altenew blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

It is a special blog hop for an amazing cause! Our goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. Please click HERE for all the details on how you can join in and support this card drive!

In addition, Altenew is releasing a special collection of new stamp sets which would be perfect for creating your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards! These stamps will be released on April 4th, and 20% of the profits earned by Father’s Day will be donated.

***

To celebrate this blog hop, Altenew will draw two lucky winners who will each receive a $50 gift certificate to their online store. Winners will be picked randomly from the comments left on the Altenew blog by Thursday April 8th.

In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $30 gift certificate!

 ***

For today's Blog Hop I created a card using one of the new stamp sets.

mom, you are my sunshine


I stamped this beautiful floral branch in dark green and used watercolours to colour it in. I also added green splatters for a bit more interest.

mom, you are my sunshine



That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is May and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop!
