Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop - July 2017

Welcome to the Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop!  

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

In any given month, we each randomly select a few members from the Random Act of Kindness Card Group to send a RAK card to, 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 #MakeACardSendACard

June was another exciting month for me, so sit back, put your feet up and relax for a while... you might might to warm up your coffee or tea, first though, as I share some beauties with you!

PEN PALS!!!  This group is so awesome to be a part of... not only do you get to have fun making cards to send to others, but once in a blue moon, you just might receive a little extra bonus like I did.  A sweet gem sent me a card requesting a favor - she wanted stamps!  Needless to say, I was happy to oblige as I love going to my local post office.  :)  So if you have not already felt the love like I have, please do not hesitate to spread and share the love in more way than one!  

Look at all these beauties I received last month from around the world!  
I definitely felt the kindness being spread around the world and loved a lot!

And talk about being excited... I was beside myself to receive a card from Stampin' Up! Artisan Carolina Evans!  We actually have quite a few Artisans in our group, but I have been following Carolina's blog for quite some time now so I was just a TAD bit thrilled when I noticed her envelope amongst my mail one June afternoon.

Does this card look familiar?!?
It should because it was featured in the June RAK Blog Hop!!!
Fellow hopper Carolina Evans featured it on her blog, and yes, I was one of the lucky recipients!
