Share Sunshine ~ Day of Service Craft Project

Welcome back to my corner of the world

On May 21st Stampin’ UP! held a Day of Service and invited as many people to join in with them as could get onto  the facebook page.  They provided instructions with a template and used the  Share Sunshine PDF – which is stuffed full of greetings reflecting encouraging sayings perfect for lifting the spirits of folks while we are coping with the restrictions to keep us all safe during the terrible COVID 19 pandemic.  You can still purchase the Share Sunshine, it will be available until June 2nd  ~ ALL proceeds go to a COVID 19 fund!!  So far they have raised over $200,000!!!

I made 20 cards from the supplies – all of them different,  using the Woven Threads DSP, lots of embellishments and some punches.  They have all now been distributed to customers and friends.:-) #ShareSunshine

So today’s card just uses Mint Macaron with a little Smoky Slate and Whisper White.  I also broke out my Sponge Brayer – it is some time since that saw the light of day!
