This is my first post as part of the Fresh Squeezed Stamps design team and I get the extra thrill of posting on the day that Fresh Squeezed is part of the Caring Hearts Card Drive blog hop. The Caring Hearts Card Drive collects holiday cards to provide some cheer for the elderly who live in nursing homes in the U.S. and Canada.
NOTE: I am not actually on the hop list - Fresh Squeezed is on the list. I just got the privilege of creating the card!! The hop itself goes through Fresh Squeezed Stamps so please be sure to head over there to do the hop!
I went back and forth over this card. I looked at my newly-growing Fresh Squeezed collection and, although I dearly love the new set, Hello December, I was worried it might be too snarky and too trendy for a nursing home. But it was pointed out to me that, for the right person (with a sense of humor!), there might be no one who would more like to erase the last year of their lives and have a do-over than someone dealing with a move to a nursing home.
- Stamps: Fresh Squeezed Stamps Hello December, Holiday Tag-Alongs, Background Check
- Paper: Stampin' Up Real Red and Garden Green, Avery Elle woodgrain
- Ink: Stampin' Up Real Red and Garden Green, Papertrey Ink Pineforest, Old Paper Distress Ink (along the edges of the stationery)
