Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop!

Hey guys!

Welcome to my stop on the Altenew "Celebrating Parents Card Drive" blog hop! 

I'm so glad you're here and I'm excited to share a few cards with you for this important cause! If you're following along the hop, you should've arrived from the amazing and oh, so talented, Erum's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, Click here to go to Altenew's blog.

Altenew's goal is to send cards to the elderly who live in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they're not forgotten. Please check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in some cards!

Whew! Now that all the important business of this hop is taken care of, let's get to the creations! (All products used will be listed at the end of this post.)

I used the Best Dad Stamp set for my first two cards. A simple, shaded background, stamped with lots of different images from the set and an added sentiment, make for a quick and easy card!

For the second one, I also used the coordinating die set. These images are so fun to color and cut out! Then you just add them to your card base to create an adorable, little scene!

My third and fourth cards had to have some flowers because we can't forget about the mom's out there! This next one uses Altenew's, Forever and Always stamp set and I loved doing a bit of water coloring with this beautiful stamp! I used my Zig Markers.

For my last card, I used the gorgeous, Happy Bloom stamp set but colored the images with Copic Markers this time. Red roses are the perfect way to celebrate mom!

That's it for me - I hope you enjoyed my cards! The next stop on the hop is the talented, Nina Marie!

Thanks for stopping by! ♥
