The Perfect Package


When I saw this month's AmberINK's INKredible 21-Day Challenge, I knew exactly what I was going to do. The challenge was to make a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) card for someone you don't know OR make an AK  (Act of Kindness) card or gift for someone you DO know. I made a set of cards and gift tags for someone I do know. She's about my age, with two very young boys, and has spent this year battling cancer. It's been rough, and I wanted to do something nice for her to help with the holiday crush.

I made six cards using the girl from You're the Perfect Package, and I also made ten gift tags. The don't match, but that's on purpose. I colored the cards in non-traditional holiday colors so that she didn't have to use them at Christmas if she didn't want to - maybe she could save them for thnak you notes or something else.I've got a bunch of other Christmas cards that I've been working on all year that I'm adding to her box, so she should be all set for the holidays!

I used the sketch that I posted for the Lizzie Anne Designs 150th Sketch Challenge earlier today for this card - I love how simple it is!
