I'm participating in Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness Challenge this month! I'm super excited to encourage myself to send the things I'm making. Too many times, I just put it in my stash and think I'll send it later and then later becomes even later and then never. It's a bad cycle and one I can't wait to break! This week is about sending handmade kindness to friends and family.
Today, I made a card for a friend I haven't seen in about a year. I miss her dearly and I wanted to let her know that I'm thinking about her.
I used the Frappi Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm because she looks a little bit like my friend and she just LOVES coffee. All together, this card uses products from a total of 6 companies! (Wow!) I'm putting it in the mail tomorrow. In fact, it's already to go with an addressed envelope and everything. (I'm so proud of myself!) I hope she enjoys this card as much as I enjoyed making it!
I'm also going to enter this into the Simon Monday Challenge (Glossy) because I added glossy accents to the heart on the cup, her bracelet, and her shoes. Hard to show in a picture, but it's really pretty in real life. It's also going into the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes).
