Sharing Handmade Kindness!
Hi guys! My first blog post in over a year! Wow.
I wanted to get started back up with the acceptance of a challenge over on Jennifer McGuire's Blog. Even though I haven't posted on my blog in the past year, I've been actively making cards all this time, just haven't had (taken?) the time to post about them.
Anyway, cards are my go to way of showing others that I care. I love making them, but mostly I love the fact that randomly receiving them makes someone smile. This challenge is right up my alley :). I hope you'll consider participating and linking up as well - and I'd love to see what you create.
So, I've been watching Kristina Werner's ink smooshing videos a lot and have just fallen in love with this technique! The set of cards I'm sharing today, all use this technique with various Distress Ink colors and they all have variations of this Mama Elephant stamp set (which is SO wonderful - and versatile). I'm sending a set of these to a friend overseas. Her husband is in the Navy and they are currently stationed over in Italy - which is wonderful - but can also be really hard for a new mama with 2 little boys and no family or friends nearby. I wanted to make her smile and brighten her day. Hopefully a bunch of these cuties will do the trick!
Thanks for peeking & I hope you spread some kindness today as well!!
