Cards for Kindness with

Tuesday, August 30, 2022 has an amazing global initiative called CARDS FOR KINDNESS to get handmade cards to people in need!

Handmade cards take time and goodness knows we could all use more of that! So when you receive a handmade card in the mail, that means someone took the most precious thing we have, time, to create something just for you! It's such a great feeling. I love making, sending, and receiving handmade cards and I know others do too.

Here's How it Works:
1. You send your handmade cards in our needed-themes (blank inside - with no personal message) to  
2. They organize and distribute the cards to cancer foundations, hospitals, shelters, retirement homes, children's homes, and other organizations in need. (See the partner organizations here.) 
3. The cards are used by nurses, doctors, staff members, counselors, parents, and volunteers who add handwritten messages of encouragement and love before giving them to patients, children and other people in need.
To make this "GRATEFUL THANKFUL BLESSED" card, grab my exclusive Acrylic Stamp Set that coordinates with Garden Shoppe then stamp the main sentiment in the center of a smooth square white cardstock card base using black StazOn ink. Color in the open letters with colored pencils. Next, stamp all four of the leaves with the same black ink on smooth white cardstock then paint over them with Pastel Dreams and Tropicals watercolors. Once dry, splash white acrylic paint on top and let it dry. Fussy cut all the leaves out and glue them in a wreath around the sentiment to finish. 
To make this "IF FRIENDS WERE FLOWERS I'D PICK YOU" card, grab my new Acrylic Stamps from Garden Shoppe then stamp the main sentiment in the center of a smooth white cardstock card base using black StazOn ink. Stamp the remaining flowers and leaves in a frame around the sentiment. Use colored pencils to fill in all the shapes! Done and done!
To make this "THANKS" card, grab the exclusive stamp set and a rainbow of ink pads. Stamp the sentiment in the center  of a smooth white cardstock card base with a raspberry ink. Use the little butterfly stamps and a variety of colors of ink to make a custom background. Add a small piece of pink striped Washi Tape from my new Garden Shoppe collection under the sentiment to finish. Very easy to replicate quickly & easily!
