~Handmade Kindness~

We have such sweet families in our church...there is one couple in particular that I want to thank.

I want to thank a lady at church who has

lately been giving me crafty goodies that she says she doesn't someone should use them!

Blessings for me, that's for sure!

She may not be a crafter, but her kindness is handmade. ;)

I used two chairs to represent what I see in the pic at Inspired By #31.

The blue chair represents the husband (who has been a good friend to my husband) and the yellow is for the woman.

They are comfy like this pic....making us feel like family and welcoming us into their hearts.

I've incorporated stamping on patterned paper with Papertrey Ink's Communique Curves sentiment for

That one strip of DP stands out, I think, against the white stamped layers.

Stamping is the main technique here...stamps from Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink and October Afternoon (yes, they offer stamps too!).

I recently got some Memento Ink Teal Zeal and it's perfect~not blue, not green.

I enjoyed playing with it today....expect to see a lot of it~I'm obsessive that way! LOL.

Have a great day~thanks for stopping by. ;)
