Kindness Matters

Does Kindness Matter?  Of course it does.  It gives us a smile, changes our mood and tone for the day.  Kindness matters to all of us.  It can be as simple as saying "hello", opening a door for a stranger at the store or sending a "just because" card to a friend.  Unfortunately, I have a few friends who have gone through breast cancer in the last few years.  A scary disease to deal with that challenges them to find something positive about each day.  So whenever one of these friends has to go through a round of chemo and radiation, I make it a priority to send or give them a "just because" card every week.  I always send the cards on different days of the week so they never know when the cards will arrive.  This element of surprise is what hopefully lifts their spirits during the day.  We all have bad days but if you were going through a rough time in your life and received a card in the mail with adorable images or an inspiration quote it would lift your spirits and hopefully make you smile.  Right?  So I try to help my friends deal with this awful disease by sending a little bit of cheer every week.  This is one of the cards I plan on sending to a friend this week since she just found out that her cancer has returned.  Because Kindness does Matter to all of us!
Pool Party, Riding Hood Red and Basic Gray
My Stamping Club made the card below this past weekend.  It was fun to use the Labels Collection Framelits Dies, the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies and Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and to play around with some Baker's Twine.  I love the stamp set Kindness Matters and as soon as I saw this card (on Heather Summer's blog) I knew that I had to CASE it.  I used the color combination of Pool Party, Riding Hood Red and Basic Gray.  The original card had used DSP instead I added texture to the Riding Hood Red card stock with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Try out this layout or send a card to a friend "just because."

Remember...Kindness does Matter.
