Sharing handmade kindness

Do you know Jennifer McGuire?  If you're into cardmaking and you don't, then you should! She is scarily talented and a fabulous teacher and a wonderful mother to her kids but, if that wasn't enough, she is the most generous crafty person I know. (And that's saying something, because crafty people are all kinds of awesome.)

Jennifer has just started a new venture called "Sharing Handmade Kindness".  The idea is to encourage fellow crafters to not just make crafty things, but to share them. That is, to use our creations to cheer someone's day.  Just because.

So, earlier this week, I sent off a few cards to some friends, and I also sent a pack of cards to the Caring Hearts Card Drive (run by Vera Yates and Jennifer McGuire - more info about this HERE).  But I wanted to make some new cards to send, not just cards from my stash. So here's a card I made today and that I intend to post tomorrow.
I'll also be sharing this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

  4. I love the bright, happy colors you used, and the way you curved the greeting along the top of the images. I pinned this for future inspiration. Tfs! ~ Andrea
