Sharing Handmade Kindness....


Jennifer McGuire is running this awesome campaign #sharehandmadekindness - this month.

Go to her blog and check it out, it is a really nice thing to do, it sums up how I feel about the craft community and it will make you feel warm and fluffy.

I have combined my card for #sharehandmadekindness week 1 with this great challenge - Fab Friday - I stumbled across it, when I was looking at various blogs and I love this weeks sketch -

My card is for my DT colleague and friend Sue B.

Sue and I have never met, but she never fails to leave a comment on my blog, send me a card or a random email. She is a genuinely sweet person. So I made this card for her to say thank you for her friendship and to accompany a little something I have been making for her...

I used a Stampin' Up set - Tap, Tap, Tap to make my card and a set of mini alpha stamps. The circle die-cut I made using 2 circle dies..

Once again a simple card, but full of love and joy for Sue.



  1. Oh Claire! I'm so moved by your lovely post and what an awesome card… how did you know?… I used to be a typist!!! so this is perfect for me!! ;-) love how you've used the sketch for this very sweet card!
    I've had a rough couple of days, and so this has really warmed the cockles of my heart!
    So happy to have you as a friend hun! ;-)
    Big hugs, Sue B xx

    1. OMG Really!! That is too funny, I did not know that..amazingly good luck. Who better to share handmade kindness with than you Sue. Cx

  2. Claire - What a lovely card! I love the muted tones and the whimsical placement of the letters along the top, right and bottom, left. LOVE IT! Even better that she used to be a typist. :) Thanks so much for playing along with this FabFriday sketch challenge. I'm so glad you did.

  3. This is a great interpretation of that sketch using that sexy typewriter. This makes me happy x

  4. What a great card to send to a friend! The little letters sprinkled across the card front are too cute! I just love the CAS feel of this card. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
