Well, my goodness, my attempts to start blogging again have met with a huge F in effort! I have been creating...just not sharing. Some of the things I've made are NOT shareable (LOL!...U G L Y!) but I do have a few things that have been fun and have worked out (and yes.I.copied.most.of.them from the superstars!).
But today I wanted to bring up the campaign Jennifer McGuire is spearheading at her blog which is "Share Handmade Kindness". We all need a bit more kindness in the world, don't we? With handmade gifts we can share that kindness and, perhaps, bring a smile to someone's face.
You can read about the campaign and challenge HERE.
I have been sending out a few cards lately and have had more fun decorating the envelopes than making the cards. I've done some watercolor washes ala' Kristina Werner which have been well received.
And then I decided to decorate this envelope with a little scene done with some older Hero Arts stamps I have. My friend, Amy, moved into a new house recently and I wanted to send her a congratulations card.
So here it is:
I blurred her address for obvious reasons. Can't have ya'all stalking her!
Anyway, a little fancy hand lettering made it even more fun.
I used the Zig Clean Brush Pens which I recently purchased and absolutely love. They are so much fun and so easy to work with and I am a huge fan of the watercolor look!
We have had so much rain lately that I slipped this envelope into a clear envelope for mailing. I certainly didn't want my work to wash out!
And that is it for today...a little kindness is on its way to Amy!
Happy Crafting and spread the kindness!
