Sweet Sentiments

I am just having so much fun with my Copics and New Sensational Season Stamp Set from Close to My Heart.  Here is another Spring/Easter Card I created with some $1.00 finds at Michael's.  

I also wanted to announce a Fun New Idea my family is going to start.  Once a month I am going to gather as many Thinking of You, You are so Special, and Happy Birthday cards that I can, and take a trip with my kids to a local Nursing Home.  The plan is to share a little love with those that sometimes get forgotten in our busy lives.  My mother worked as a nurse in many nursing homes while I was growing up and I remember weekends spent with our many adopted grandparents.  They are great memories of my childhood and I want to be able to share that with my children before they start to leave home.  For my local Creative Cutter Friends if you are interested in a card making get together to help make some of these cards-let me know-the more the merrier!!!  I will have all the supplies on hand I just need some Creative ideas to get us started.  I am going on a Retreat just before Passover and hopefully I can come back with  loads of cards to deliver in time for Easter & Mother's Day.  This was actually my Hubby's Idea and we had a fun time naming our New Adventure.  We are going to call it Sweet Sentiments.  I can't wait to get started!!
