Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop - August 2017

APMCreations | August 2017 RAK Blog Hop

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

July 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!

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

This was my SECOND card from Kim during July... I was so excited!!!
She CASE(d) the RAK card I sent to her in June!  It was so humbling and exciting to receive this card
and it made me want to do this myself!

The fun part about receiving RAK cards is seeing all sorts of techniques
and guessing what they are so I can attempt them myself.
And yes, you see a THIRD card from Kim Fiore!!!
Now here are the cards that I had fun sending out during July!  I hope they bring a smile to your face and/or inspire you in some way with your creativity!

July 2017 Occasions and Birthday RAK cards
July was a busy month for me personally so I was not able to send out as many cards as I have in the past.  That is what is so nice about this group... you can participate as little or as much as you can.  Needless to say, I am looking forward to sending out lots more at my next opportunity!

Carolina Evans' response when she saw my name on an envelope in her mail!!!
So classic as I know my face and many others have looked the same way when they have received a RAK.

This wonderful group not only spreads kindness, but it builds friendships!  Friendships across the miles... across the waters... across the street... anywhere there is a mailbox.  :)

I hope you have been inspired by all these projects on my blog today.  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 sure don't want to miss any!  Thanks for hopping by and I'm looking forward to seeing ya'll again soon!!
