Your Kindness is Appreciated

Showing kindness is such a simple act and can have a huge effect on someone. It doesn't even need to be a big thing. A genuine smile to a complete stranger could brighten their day. I've been sending out quite a few cards with uplifting messages. And I don't always sign my name. I kinda like the mystery of it.
I also try to send out Thank You cards to those who have blessed me. My children both know they need to write a Thank You card whenever they have been given a gift. When I saw this new Thank You stamp set from Reverse Confetti, I knew I would use it quite a bit. 
I also fell in love with their Linked Circle Cover Panel die cut. When I was trying to figure out what papers to use as the background, I kept thinking about rainbow colors. I pulled out a Lawn Fawn 6x6 paper pad and created a soft colored rainbow. This card took me a long time to make since I inlaid all the color pieces into the Linked Circle die. But it was worth it since I think the end results turned out great.

I'm entering my card in the Words 2 Craft By card challenge 'Small Hearts, Large Gratitude.' 

Thanks for visiting my blog today!


  1. The time involved with this card was definitely worth it Kristie as it is just beautiful! I totally agree, kindness goes a long way and you could actually save a person's life with kindness. Love the idea of an anonymous card too. Hugs, Brenda

    1. Thank you, Brenda! I agree, we never know what struggles someone else is going through. So just a small act of kindness can make such a huge difference in their life.

  3. Hi Kristie, I agree the work you put into your gorgeous card was totally worth it! It's so bright and happy and would make any recipient feel good. I also love that you don't always sign your cards - a little mystery is fun! Thanks so much for playing along with our Piglet-Gratitude theme over at Words 2 Craft By. Hope to see you again soon!

    1. Thank you, Marty! Yes, mystery can be fun. I have had a few recipients figure it out though. :)
