Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop - March 2018

Welcome to the March 2018 edition of the Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop!  You are currently visiting Angie McKenzie in the USA.  This month I am showcasing the cards I have sent and received as part of the Random Act of Kindness Card Group on Facebook (aka Group).

In any given month, participating Group members randomly select a few other members within the Group to send a RAK card to brighten their day - just because.  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, but definitely  adds to the fun).  #imbringingRAKcardsback #MakeACardSendACard

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

Graceful Garden is such a beautiful stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends.
I love how Rita showcased it with the coordinating Petal Garden DSP.  #loveitchopit

Grace absolutely captured the feel of RAK cards with this amazing card using Bird Banter and
the Lovely Words thinlits.  The touch of the SAB shimmery ribbon with the Tutti-Frutti DSP is perfect.

I received my first card from Priscilla last year... and each card I receive from her is even more special!
Love how she used Bella & Friends to express our friendship for life across the waters.
Her choices of the ribbon, Fresh Florals DSP and ovals add a touch of elegance to this classic timeless card.

Laura created this lovely fun-fold card with the Lovely Words thinlets.
Tranquil Tide was absolutely luscious with the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP!  The Bunch of Banners framelits fit nicely with the Lovely Inside & Out sentiment.

One of our youngest stampers created this adorable card for my son!
Hope did an excellent job using the Party Pandas SAB stamp set!
What beauties my son and I received last month from around the world!  
We definitely felt the kindness being spread around the world and loved a lot!

Now here are the cards that I had fun sending out during February!  I hope they bring a smile to your face and/or inspire you in some way with your creativity!

The Petal Passion Suite is my FAVORITE all inclusive bundle at the moment.
Tutti Frutti Note Cards and Envelopes was a fun way to share the love of RAK with 16 special friends around the world!

We Must Celebrate along with the Tutti Fruit notecards and envelopes
was a lot of fun to use to create these cheerful RAKS4kids!

I mentioned in last month's Blog Hop (click here for details) that we had a very special event - RAKs 4 Kids - during February!  This event was created because of a wish of one the member's little girl...  thanks to her wish, several other kids around the world enjoyed making them as much as all of them enjoyed receiving them!  Hopefully this special event will become an annual event (or maybe even more frequent)!  Only time and patience will tell.   So keep on stamping and checking your mailboxes kiddos!
