Share Handmade Kindness week two

img397

Week two was to recognize someone in the service area, a postman, waitress, clerk, salesman, etc. I got my card done yesterday for this and was too late to post this on Jennifer McGuires site. I still wanted to share it. It is also being submitted to the SweetStamps Anything Goes challenge. This card went to my niece Kelli and her husband Cory. They just got married in August and she is in her last year of college for nurses training and she also works 40 hours a week. Cory may work two or three jobs so I think they are toadally awsome. The leaves and tree are a Simon Says stamp and also dies.  The toad is by Stamps by Heather and Judith and the sentiment is Art Gone Wild.

I also sent along some cookies for some real quick energy pick ups. I think they need it!

A loaf of honey/buttermilk homemade bread. I was a good batch! And also a pasta dish for a meal to fill their belly when they get home from work. They are a busy couple and Kelli is going to make a wonderful nurse.

Sweet Stamps also has a weekly challenge of “anything goes” which means you can do what you want to do, no guidelines. I will submit this card to that challenge and also it works for another entry into the “Share handmade kindness. Another friend or family member will be receiving this card from me. The stamp is from BLine Designs B-Lines, the butterfly is from Stamps by Judith Stamps by Judith and the sentiment is made by Inky Antics Inky Antics. Fun and so true. Thanks for stopping.

Challenges

This is a pop-up box card. There are two sites that I enjoy that are sponsoring some challenges that I am participating in. The first is the SweetStamps monthly challenge and the technique is a pop up card. Here is the tutorial video on how to make it. It will fit comfortably in an A9 envelope which is 5 3/4 X 8 3/4.

Here it is opened up and it turns into a box. The second site is Jennifer McGuire and her challenge is Share Handmade Kindness. I loved this idea and concept and am sending off my pop-up card to share my handmade kindness.
