SugarPea Designs Caring Hearts Special Release Hop

Welcome to SugarPea Designs Caring Hearts Special Release. I am so excited to join SugarPea Designs for this special hop in celebration of the upcoming 7th annual Caring Hearts Card Drive! This is a special blog hop, so you may have landed here from Lisa's blog, and I'm sure she had you at hello with her seriously awesome designs! You'll find the entire blog hop listed below.




If you're not familiar with this event, here's a bit more information for you. Vera (the mastermind behind the card drive) and Jennifer McGuire along with their team of volunteers will be collecting handmade holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes from October 1 to November 25Vera will have all of the card drive details up on her blog on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016. In addition, a generous portion of the proceeds from these stamps and dies will go to the Alzheimer's Association.



I've used stamps and dies from the SugarPea Designs Caring Hearts Special Release to create my cards today. My first card features the adorable monkey from Caring Critters and a sentiment from Kindness Matters. Is he not the cutest little mail-chimp you've ever seen?!


My second card uses sentiments from Kindness Matters along with the SugarCuts - Kindness die in a rainbow of colors. These sets are full of sentiment combination possibilities that you'll use over and over again. Enjoy!

More great news - there are prizes involved, and here are the details:
  • SugarPea Designs is giving away the entire Caring Hearts release (3 stamp sets & 3 SugarCuts dies) to one lucky commenter.  Readers have until October 7th to comment
  • Vera will randomly select from comments left on hop participants to give away a $25 GC to the SugarPea Designs Store
  • SugarPea Designs will announce the release winner on their blog on Sunday, October 9th

 Now it's time to hop along to Brianna's blog for more blog hop eye candy using these adorable new stamps and dies. Thank you for spending a bit of your sweet day with me.
~Amy

wilson.marie65 said...

What a wonderful card.... love the watercoloring.. amazing :)

Sue D said...

I like how you colored this cute monkey.

Gail Plaskiewicz said...

I love how you made the monkey look like a cartoon and not like a real monkey. No one else did that. The Kindness sentiments are amazing and I hope to win them. I like how you die cut the word Kindness out and did it in a yellow/gold color to make it stand out. Yellow is my favorite color by the way. I love the Kindness campaign because all you have to do is read the newspaper or watch the news and see that Kindness is almost non existent in this country. If people would just say Thank You more or Please or I Love You, this world would be a much nicer place. I do it all the time and it's not hard. I am going to be making cards for everybody I can in this campaign.
