Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop

Welcome to the Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop!  

You are visiting Angie McKenzie in the United States of America.  

I am so excited to be a part of this incredible group that originally started as a group on a blog that is now on Facebook.  Who would have ever thought that by receiving two beautiful hand-stamped cards last year that I would be participating in this RAK Blog Hop on Mother's Day 2017?!?!  I need to be pinched!

Each month, we each randomly select a few members from the Random Act of Kindness Card Group to send a RAK card to brighten their day.  There is nothing like sharing our love of creating handmade cards to spread sunshine around the world!  Please feel free to join the Group if you would like to participate in the RAK cards movement (blogging is not mandatory). #imbringingRAKcardsback

Here are some cards that I have made since receiving my first two cards last year.

And these are only a sampling of what I have made to share with my RAK friends!

On Friday, I mailed these two cards to some RAK friends overseas... the recipients will not receive them for at least two weeks, but if they are reading this blog post they just might get a little excited when they see the cards in their mailboxes!  #imbringingRAKcardsback

So would you like to see what cards I have received while having fun with this RAK group?  Well, just keep scrolling down and you'll see!

Not only is it exciting to receive the cards,
but also amazing to think how far the card has traveled to land in my mailbox!!!
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE RECEIVING SUCH A
LOVELY RAINBOW OF COLOR, INSPIRATION AND FRIENDSHIPS!

I just received the following card in the mail on Friday!!!!  Nothing like having a cold and my hubby having the day off.  He brought in the mail and said "you have one of those cards from GERMANY!!" I am sure you will understand why this is the card that I decided to spotlight for today's blog post!

I don't need to speak German to know that this says "Everyone needs a friend a like you"!!!

This totally warmed my heart when I read this!
Just one week ago Kerstin asked if it was ok to send a card with
a German sentiment and my reply was "of course!"

I hope the projects you've seen here on my blog today have inspired you and brightened your day!  You are currently visiting Angie McKenzie.  Please see the list below and hop around all of the people on the list to see all our projects.  You don't want to miss any!  Thanks for hopping by!
