January Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop
RAK Cards (Random Act of Kindness)
Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today! I am taking part in a special Blog Hop for a card group I participate in, called Random Act of Kindness card group. This is a FaceBook group of card makers that send a card to another person in the group… for no reason at all. It’s a mystery if you will get any cards and of what sort, the point being to send out cards to bring a smile to another’s day. This is a lovely group of people and I get very excited to send off cards around the world to these amazing people.
RAK cards I have sent
Cards have been flying around the world from my home here in New Jersey. One of the most amazing things about building friendships that amazes me, is how we can touch each other’s lives from many miles away. Many people get to know friends and never meet face to face. Because of this fantastic global company called Stampin’ Up!, I have made some of the greatest friendships and feel many kindred spirits in other parts of our world. If we are fortunate enough to be in the same country, we have an opportunity to meet up at Stampin’ Up! OnStage events and share big hugs and warm hearts.
I have mailed cards to Australia, the UK, Germany and most of the United States of America. Many of the cards I design for demonstration here on my Blog have been among the cards I have mailed. If you are in the RAK group and would like to connect with me and receive one of my cards, please leave me a comment stating this below. Being as there are hundreds of members in our group, it will take some time to get a card to everyone!
Here are my January cards, ready to mail. I created a fun fast-speed video showing how easy they are to assemble. CLICK HERE to watch the video on You Tube.

RAK cards I have received
I am so grateful to each sender for choosing to send a card to me. My oldest son, Trip, gets very excited to see a new card from another place in the world. We look at the cards together, he tell me what he likes best about the card and we talk about the person who has sent it and where they are sending from. He does not quite get the concept of the immense distance some cards have traveled but he does understand that it is a special card, with special intent.
Thanks so much to Michelle Haney and Charlene Westbury for your amazing cards! They arrived to bring a smile to my face and to share with my children about how your simple act of kindness can touch our lives.
