Last year's C.A.R.E. project around this time of year was making Christmas cards for Hospice patients and caregivers. We are doing that again this year. Hoping to make as many or more cards.
We will gather at my home for a day of card making. I will probably have soup, or something simple for lunch. Bring anything you have you think we might be able to use; such as paper, glue, adhesives, or embellishments. You don't have to bring to participate. We will have plenty.
If you would like to be a part of this outreach, contact me.
We will meet on October 5th and create treat boxes to be distributed to children hospitalized over Halloween.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription of an all inclusive project. The stamps, inks, and all materials are provided in the kit, including the adhesives. This subscription makes 20 treat boxes per kit. We are planning on making at least 100 boxes this day.

Please add me, Susan Owen, as your demonstrator. By doing that, you become part of my paper pumpkin team.
Our May 18th C.A.R.E. Event is creating packs of greeting cards to give to senior citizens who are home bound. We will also enclose postage stamps.
I am asking everyone who participates to bring a pack of stamps.
It is always a blessing to encourage others.
Hospitals, Homeless, Disabled, Elderly, Widowed, Hospice patients, or teachers, service personnel, Caregivers, so many people need a kind word, an expression of thanks, or a smile in the form of a card. We not only create cards as a ministry, we teach others to do the same.
Together with my group of Stamp & Scrappers, we meet quarterly to create cards and projects for this ministry. We met January 19th to create Valentines for the Shine Soup Kitchen's February Valentine Banquet. We were about 20 ladies in number that day, and we created around 200 Valentine's Day Cards. The pictures of some of those cards are pictured above.
Our next C.A.R.E. Event will be in April.
I will update information when our projects are finalized.
