A Little Kindness........

Goes a long way, doesn't it? It occurred to me that I know a lot of kind people. People who have the ability to make your day brighter just because they exist. That's such a blessing and I don't want to ever take them for granted! So, for all of you kindhearted friends out there, thanks for being you! This card is for you! Enjoy!

Stamps: Floral Background, Baroque Motifs
Ink: Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal
Cardstock: Apricot Appeal, Glossy White, Whisper White
Other: Certainly Celery DSP, Scallop Punch, Rhinestone Circle Brads Ice (green) Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Brayer, Sanding Blocks

This card uses the Faux Linen technique. I stamped the Floral Background onto Glossy CS with Celery ink. Sanded it with the sanding blocks in two directions, then brayered on Apricot Ink and wiped clean with a paper towel. It's much prettier in real life, my camera doesn't pick up the subtleties of the texture.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Robin this is such and effective card, thanks for sharing.

  2. I love this card for its simplicity. There is a lot to be said for simplicity. I don't like the cards that are "busy". The sentiment seems to get lost with a lot of embellishments.
    I have just started making some cards and especially like the one I made for my daughter. She reads my blog so I won't be able to post a picture of it until after her birthday on the 10th.
