Don't Be Jelly - You're Fabulous Too!

Hello Lovelies,
I have a card to share with you today. I used my favorite cart, CAC for the cuts at 3 inches and the KI Memories' Classic Prints paper stack.

As you all know, I make a lot of cards each week and most of the time, they sit in my file until needed.  Actually, when I need a card, I more often than not will just make a completely new card for whomever, unless I am in a serious hurry. I know, I know.

Well, as I was thinking of ways to force myself to write down the recipes for my cards and while also adding a touch of kindness to the mix, here is what I came up with...I will now be gifting my cards away and here is how it will work. At the end of the week (Saturday), I will select a recipient (via a drawing) from all of my comments and that person will then pick any card of their choice from the week's creations and I will mail it out to them. It's my way of bringing just a little bit of kindness back into the world.

Anyhoo, I have rambled enough. I hope you guys like my idea and my card. Thanks for the visit and have a super cool day.
