An Uplifting Week

This has been an uplifting week for two reasons:

First, I got an email last week from one of my friends on the Paper Wishes Message Board, Fabrizio (Fab) Martelluci, that he had sent me something. Out of the blue, no swaps going on, no challenges, he just had seen something he thought I would like and sent it to me. I received it during the week and it was a lovely cat stamp - you know how much I like cats! I will definitely have to pay this forward to another crafter one day! Here is the thank you card I made for Fab, using the stamp. I tried something a little different on this one. I used two different colors of embossing powder - a chocolate brown and a copper. Like the effect?

Then, I was looking at my different blogs and favorite sites, and ran across a notice that Michelle Oatman, a card designer and digital artist, had been in a car accident and Meljen's Designs had created a freebie digital design and was asking people to create cards for Michelle using the design. It is of a donkey, and evidently Michelle raises miniature donkeys. So people are flooding her mailbox with these cute donkey cards.

Just renews your faith in people again to see this happening. What a great hobby we have!
