I'm so thankful for my RAK friends!
Thanks for joining us on another Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop!  You are visiting Angie McKenzie in the USA.  I am showcasing the cards I have given &/or received as part of the Random Act of Kindness Card Group on Facebook (aka Group).

In any given month, we each randomly select a few members from the 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

November 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! | RAK Blog Hop - Dec 2017
What a gorgeous embossing technique using Vintage Leaves by Karla!  #copperembossing #waxsealstampingtechnique | RAK Blog Hop - Dec 2017
What a gorgeous technique with Beautiful You from my Aussie friend, Priscilla!  #paperpiecingtechnique
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! | RAK Blog Hop - Dec 2017
My first Christmas card!  #ilovepaperpumpkin #piningforplaid | RAK Blog Hop - Dec 2017

Lindsay's warm cozy Christmas card using Painted Harvest, Teeny Tiny Wishes,
Christmas Around the World DSP and the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF was divine!

Susan used Festive Phrases, Santa's Sleigh and the Holly TIEF with Stamping' Write markers for this adorable card...
red rhinestones and Wink of Stella added some shimmery, shiny magic!

My second card from the talented Jane Van Note in November!!!
This eclipse card using the retired Reason for the Season stamp set is breathtaking!
The Foil Frenzy DSP with the watercolor pencils and a touch of Wink of Stella
in the poinsettia centers is so striking.

Love this Quilt Builder card built on DSP!!!
The sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments was stamped on Year of Cheer DSP and the
quilt was pieced over Quilted Christmas DSP using the same - ingenious!
I had fun participating in FOUR RAK events last month which is seen in the diversity of cards I received!  Since it was such a busy, fun month, I shared half of my cards with you during last month's hop.  Now here are the remainder of the cards that I had fun sending out during November!  I hope they bring a smile to your face and/or inspire you in some way with your creativity! | RAK Blog Hop - Dec 2017 | RAK Blog Hop - Dec 2017
Those who know me, know I LOVE SNOW, thus the snowflakes!!!
White embossed snowflakes of the background with splattered mark...
along with the Color Theory DSP mimicking falling snow
 and the Holly Berry Happiness sentiment is perfect for my RAK friends!

The star and holy family from the Night in Bethlehem bundle were highlighted with copper embossing. 
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.  :)
