On a Roll with Christmas Cards

Since I was making three cards for Dusti's Christmas in July swap, I decided to make a couple extra of each for my mom and aunt. These penguins turned out so adorable!
I made 2 in pink and 2 in blue. It was the first time I welded and used my gypsy to make a shaped welded card. It was so much fun! I decided to enter them into Deanne's New to You Linky Part. http://deannescreativejuice.blogspot.com/2011/07/new-to-you-thursday-linky-party.html
I made 2 in pink and 2 in blue.

Christmas in July

My three cards I made for the Christmas in July swap hosted by Dusti over at http://www.scrappinwithcricut.com/2011/06/christmas-in-july-card-swap.html. The snowflake card and Penguin were made with my Cricut. The Ornament card was made with my friend's stamps. I had so much fun. Thanks Dusti for letting me join in the swap.

While I was randomly blog hopping, I hopped over to Deanne at Deanne's Creative Juice. And I saw this post about how she was at Dusti over at Scrappin with Cricut where she saw this wonderful "Pay It Forward" post on her blog. I think it's a AWESOME idea.
"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this on there blog, and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 people who comment.
2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 people who comment.
4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

**If you are one of the first 5 people to leave a comment on this post, PLEASE email me your mailing bkb248@gmail.com. PLEASE put "PAY IT FORWARD" in the subject line.

Join the chance to do a random act of kindness for a fellow crafter or blogger!!!
