Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop - July 2018

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 and/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

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!

Terry has become a dear friend and is such a wonderful pen pal! 
Her Retired RAK card features the lovely Blossoming Basket SAB stamp set and the Basket Weave DTIEF.
Kayla was a RAK member before she became an Artisan so it was VERY EXCITING to
receive her card featuring In Every Season and Itty Bitty Greetings.  Love her use of two different types of ribbon, too!
Isn't Kerry's Retired RAK card gorgeous?  Pleasant Poppies with a Papillon Potpourri butterfly - LOVE!
Priscilla is another WONDERFUL dear RAK friend!  Her watercolored Animal Outing kangaroo is adorable in Cajun Craze... with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch making a lovely addition to the front. 
Queen Elizabeth's birthday stamp was an added bonus since I love the Royal family!
Paula enjoyed using a recently retired DSP for her card
and added a sentiment from Waterfront.
I love how Leanne used a retired DSP with the Petal Palette bird and a Tropical Chic sentiment!
Brenda's fancy fold card is INCREDIBLE with her two retired stamp sets, SAB Lotus Blooms and Butterfly Basics!
Lisa used the adorable retired Bird Banter stamp set with lovely retired DSP with
one of my returning favorites - the Layered Leaves TIEF!
Heather's all new products cards is awesome!  Rooted in Nature and Pop of Petals in
Calypso Coral and Blackberry Bliss - love it! 
Grace picked some lovely flowers from Varied Vases to use with
Soft Seafoam, Mossy Meadow and Flirty Flamingo... such a gorgeous NEW color combination!
Jessica's return thank you RAK features Accented Blooms in Soft Sea Foam
with the gorgeous Garden Impressions DSP and a touch of Burlap Ribbon. 
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!

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.  And we would love for you to join in on the fun, if you haven't already!  :)
