Random Acts of Cardness

My friends at Technique Tuesday emailed to ask if I’d help get the word out about their challenge to get cardmakers to actually send out their cards….sure! (See their post HERE) I love love love days when I mail out cards – I do send out tons. Lots to friends and family, but many many many to crafters (customers, usually) as surprise treats in their mailboxes. My patrons also get cards at least once a year…and that’s always a special day when I get to send them thank you notes.

Technique Tuesday made a special set of stamps just for this challenge, and its nice and inexpensive, but you can sure use any stamps you already have for the challenge. I was sent a few owls too, and sentiments, and flowers (Thank you TT!) – so I figured I’d use them all in my cards to send out as random acts of cardness!

For this challenge, I decided to work on a “set” of cards that’s “me.” Yellow. Copic. But simple so that I could make a lot of them!  I even used 110 lb paper for these one-layer cards, to give them a little more “heft” to make it through the mail without getting all bent.

My cards won’t be signed…no return address…no name on the back. I want them to be truly random surprises! I also don’t need or want any credit…but if you get one and figure out it was me, I’d love to hear about it. 🙂
