Caring Hearts Card Drive

The holidays are just around the corner, filled with opportunities to celebrate with family and friends. But during this special season, many of the elderly who live in nursing homes may be alone and missing their families. Wouldn’t it be awesome to bring smiles to their faces and brighten their holidays? That’s what the Caring Hearts Card Drive is all about! This wonderful card drive is hosted by Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire and is in its 5th year of collecting holiday cards to send to the elderly in nursing homes. And we here at Clearly Besotted are so proud to sponsor this worthwhile effort! 
Please join us in spreading cheer this holiday season with the Caring Hearts Card Drive!  Click Here for all the details, including what to send and where to send it. Note: All cards must be received by November 28, 2014.

Thank You For Your Kindness

I had to take my car into the garage this morning which is never any fun, I'm trying to convince my husband that it would be more economical to get a new one and he has suggested that if I want a new car, I should perhaps get a job that actually pays haha!

Anyway, enough of my domestic disagreements (and believe me, Dean and I have many arguments domestic disagreements), here's a little card I made...

Stamps - Thinking of You / Dies - Thinking of You Die Collection / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black / Colouring Medium - Copic Sketch Markers / Otjer - Paper Doily

I think I will browse the internet for a new car, a girl can dream right? ;)

I'm All Ears

Just swinging by with another quick card to share...

Stamps - Woodland Pals / Dies - Woodland Pals Die Collection / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; VersaMagic Dew Drops

The children have their two week half term break coming up next week and I can't wait, they have very long school hours which I'm not happy about, but I remind myself that the longer school holidays make up for it :)

Thank you for looking in on me and I hope you have a lovely day!

Clearly Besotted 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

Two years and still going, who would have thought it? Certainly not me!  Please know that I am still in awe of all the support I continue to receive from our wonderful community and I don't for one second take any of it for granted.  I could write several paragraphs expressing my gratitude but instead, I will spare you my excessive sentimentality, I know it's not to everyone's tastes!  I'll just say, once again, sincerest heartfelt thanks :)

I wasn't going to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary with a Blog Hop because I was worried about approaching people to join in, however, the Design Team insisted upon it and I'm so happy they did because the line up takes my breath away!

Your hopping order for today is as follows:

Of course, there are plenty of prizes to be won along the way so be sure to leave lots of love on your travels.  Each Blog Hop participant will be giving away a £20 Clearly Besotted e-Giftcard and one lucky winner will be randomly selected from all the comments left (only one comment per blog please, closing date for entries is October 7th) and will receive a £100 ($150 US approx.) Clearly Besotted e-Giftcard.

Good luck and happy hopping!
