Share Handmade Kindness Week 4

I feel bad for missing week 3 – but I just couldn’t get my kids involved last week for the challenge.  This week’s theme is sharing handmade kindness with strangers.

Simple notes or cards are the simplest things to give to strangers – so I made three quick holiday cards to put on strangers’ windshields tonight when my family and I went out to grab a quick dinner tonight.

SHK Week 3 -1

This Mama Elephant stamp set is so cute and I wish I had more time to jazz it up, but this was the best I could come up with in 15 mins.  My youngest, Liam, had been out with us all day grocery shopping for Thanksgiving and missed his nap. So while I was making these cards, he fell asleep in a little armchair behind me.  It was quite a funny sight!

SHK Week 3

I definitely used my MISTI tool to make the stamping consistent with each of these cards.  The MISTI has saved me so much time recently with making my batch of personal holiday cards.

SHK Week 3 -2

Nothing too fancy, but I enjoyed the time I had to create.  After the initial curses under their breaths, I hope these strangers will realize what was left on their windshields were meant to make them smile and bring them some peace after their long days. 🙂

I really hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I’ll be baking all day tomorrow – enjoy whatever it is you are doing! I’m so grateful to be off work this week!
