60th Birthday Card - Crazy Cats

A group card representing the birthday gal (inside) and her 4 buds (outside).

Cardstock: Recollections
Patterned Paper: Authentique
Stamps: Tim Holtz
Square and 60th stamps: Stampendous
Distress Ink: Tim Holtz
Font (greeting inside): CTMH Lemonade Stand
Edging ink: Stampin Up

Phew! This one took me a while to do.... I masked off the eyes and bows (on the presents) before sponging on the ink colours. All pieces were fussycut.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but the cat scene inside the card, pops out and lays flat when closed.

Caring Hearts Cards

There is a wonderful charity called the Caring Hearts Card Drive.  Handmade Christmas cards are donated and distributed to various senior's residences across Canada, U.S.A. and Australia.

I had the honour of helping organize the 6,000 plus cards that came into one of the Canadian organizers.

I, myself, only donated 10 cards.  I'm hoping to do better next year.  Here's two examples.
