RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS FROM MY FRIENDS

I've received several e-mails today from blogging friends to see if I'm OK since I haven't posted since Monday. Well, I've been under the weather all week, and just haven't felt up to stamping (gasp!). I am really hoping to be back to my old self sooner rather than later. Thank you to everyone who has checked in on me via e-mail and through my blog! Hoping to be back very soon!

I've received several wonderful RAK's (Random Acts of Kindness) this week that I can share with you today. This first beautiful card is from my friend and fellow Paper Pretties Guest Designer Dawn Easton, Treasure Oiler Designz. Dawn used the new Stampin' Up! stamp set, Embrace Life, and the new designer paper, Ginger Blossom ... two of my favorites from the new catalog!

Speaking of Paper Pretties, Christie is moving more and more inventory into the sale category in the boutique every day; an "out with the old and in with the new sale"! New products will be added daily! Click HERE to go shopping at Paper Pretties.This next card is from Cindy Motherway, aka Mothermark on SCS. This is the Featured Stamper Tribute card Cindy created for the Featured Stamper Challenge #48, and it is a HUGE card ... 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" to be exact! Wish my photograph could do this gorgeous card justice ... it is stunning in real life ... lots of layering and sparkle! Cindy played on Beth's introduction for the challenge, made it a gorgeous card, AND mailed it to me! What a wonderful keepsake to remember the honor of being a SCS Featured Stamper! Click HERE for all the details on Cindy's card.
This adorable monkey card is from my friend, Sandy Braddock, aka doublesmom on SCS. I just love the variety of circle punched monkey images! Very creative!
This morning, my friend and neighbor, Tammy Mendoza brought flowers to me to brighten my day! Tammy is always so thoughtful and full of surprises!
Hope to be back very soon!
Stampin' Hugs~
