Happy Sunday everyone!
It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight we are celebrating kindness. Stamplorations is our sponsor.
Before I talk about my card, I wanted to take a few moments to share a story which sums up what ‘kindness’ means to me…
Some time ago, I was sitting in the doctors’ waiting room. It was around 5.30 on a Friday night and I became aware of a phone conversation the receptionist was having. It was clear that the patient at the other end of the line had run out of vital meds and was unable to get to the surgery or pharmacy to collect a prescription. The receptionist made multiple calls but couldn’t find anyone to help before the surgery closed. In the end, she got the onsite pharmacy to make up the prescription and rang the patient to let her know that she would drop off the medication before going home.
That’s kindness to me. Someone going above and beyond to help someone else and not expecting anything at all in return.
Sometimes in this day and age, it’s easy to forget that these acts of kindness are actually all around us. But they are and it’s amazing how much a simple ‘thank you’ means to people like the receptionist who was just doing what she felt was right; she probably didn’t even label it at an ‘act of kindness’.
So today my card honours those humble, kind souls.
I stamped a PaperArtsy image and coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints. I splattered some paint lightly around the image and then added the stamped sentiment together with the die cut ‘thanks’. To finish off the card, I added some extra shimmer to the flowers using my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer glitter gloss aquabrush.
My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog, together with our sponsor Shery from Stamplorations and the talented Trina from Phamtastic Design as our Guest Designer. Trina is a regular
player winner (!) in our challenges – she has some beautiful CAS creations and wait until you see what she has come up with for this challenge! Stunning!
Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!
