Random Act of Kindness (RAK) August blog hop

Welcome to the August Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Blog Hop. You are visiting me, Fiona Whitten, in the UK. 

This month I'm sharing the card I received back in July along with the cards that I sent as part of the RAK group.

I was very lucky to receive a fabulous card all the way from Canada from Darlene Edvall.

Darlene made this card using the Falling Flowers stamp set and co-ordinating May Flowers Framelits. The sentiment comes from a retired hostess stamp set - Best Thoughts. I love the neutral colours that Darlene used.

In July I sent six cards that I had made using the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack.

I love this card pack - the images are beautiful and the colours in them co-ordinate with Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and ink.

Some of the cards already have a sentiment on them, but for those that didn't I used the Bunch of Blossoms and Garden in Blooms stamp sets.

Please feel free to join the Group if you would like to participate in the RAK cards movement (blogging is not mandatory). #imbringingRAKcardsback #makeacardsendacard

I hope the projects you've seen here today have both inspired you and brightened your day. 

Don't forget to check out the list below, and hop around all of the people to see our projects. You really don't want to miss any!

Whole Lot of Lovely - Part 3

Hopefully you have all seen the notecards that I made the other day. You can check them out here if you haven't - Whole Lot of Lovely Part 2.

Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to make something to hold the 5 notecards that I had left, and this is what I made.  I think it would look really pretty sitting on a desk or shelf.

One Big Happy Family - A Whole Lot of Lovely Part 2

I spent Monday evening with a lovely group of demonstrators here in San Diego at one of their team meetings.

My friend, Cynthia (McQueen) has turned her garage into a fabulous craft room. Can you see a bit of a theme going on in there?
