Cards for the Retirement Home

I give out all my cards that I make to the retirement homes in Cleveland.  What I don't sell or send to friends and family I donate to the those that don't get a card or letter from loved ones.  It's something that I am very sincere about I know that getting a card, letter or call from friends and family are very important to a persons state of mind and I will continue to do this until I absolutely can't.
 This is just a random card I made with the stamps from the  S.U. Paper Pumpkin Kit I actually like the modern technique of this card and I love the colors.

 I just pulled this colored image out of my stash and added a wink of stella to the fish face and candles.  I used My Favorite Things Subtle Plaids 6 X 6 Paper Pack, love this pack of paper.

 This card I cut the Top Note out of white cardstock then I used the spray metallic's to get this really unique card.  Used SU buttons and SU embossing folder and I think its a great manly card.

I think this is an old image I found and decided to use the SU vellum paper on it.  The cording is SU and I glued it on along with a greeting and I was finished.  These are all an example of the birthday cards I made for the Retirement home.  I have over 100 done so that while I am on my summer vacation I know that everyone will be getting cards.

You know it doesn't take much to Pay it Forward and I certainly hope each and everyone one of you will take the time to either give a compliment to someone or do something nice for a friend.
God Bless you.  Jeanine

 Well I said I would post some cards and I've been busy.  This top one is one of my favorites because its all about making presents on a card and using tissue paper and handles for the gift bags.  I must have made 10 of these for the girls on the Birthday Club list I send out monthly.  So much fun, I actually got 35 cards in toll from the girls in my group and none were even close to look alikes.  I got so many wonderful ideas and great birthday wishes.

My second card I made for my grandson to give his Mom for Mother's Day but he forgot it so now I have a Mothers day card or I could take the sentiment off and make it into something else.  I love the flowers and embossing them just makes them pop.

Yes I went crazy for the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and I love putting ties on them hats, and I'm setting up a word document for things Crazy Birds would say.  Stay tune to see some fun Crazy Bird cards that I love to make and color with distress inks.  My Copic's are in the RV so I've used Stampin UP markers (ick) and watercolors to color my stuff lately.  I should go out and get them but since I've only got 4 more weeks till I leave on my next adventure I'll leave them there and get organized to hit the road again for 3 months this time.

I'll sign off for now and catch up with you all in a few days.  My pork roast is calling me from the crock pot to make it into BBQ.  Take care and God Bless you.   Jeanine
