Reindeer Random Act of Kindness
It's time for another of Kylie Bertucci's blog highlights. The theme this month is Random acts of kindness and encouragement. Make sure you check out all of the entries and vote for your favourites. Will I be one of them?
Now what has my Christmas Reindeer frame got to do with Random Acts of Kindness you might be asking yourself. So ...... it may be a stretch but I think that Christmas can be a really lonely time for lots of people. Having a lovely little frame that can stand up in pride of place is sure to put a smile on anyone's face! I have someone in mind that I am going to post this to who I know will love it and maybe will think of me each time they pass by and feel loved.
Now next Thursday will be a great day - you will be able to order from the new 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue. You will love this Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set that comes with a coordinating punch Cookie Cutter builder punch. This set also has a bear, Santa, gingerbread man/girl and an eskimo. It has lovely sentiments in a great font. I have also used some of the new Kraft Rope trim and Warmth & Cheer Designer series paper stack. Bring on Thursday!
For the instructions to make this frame you can pop over to my previous post. This frame is made in exactly the same way but I started with a piece of cardstock 21 x 21 cm. There is even a card attached to the back with room for a personal message.
I also made up this reindeer using a cork. He was so cute, standing proud, unbent and along came my trusty assistant.........
...............and ........well the reindeer is under all that fur ......somewhere! On the floor are half eaten gingerbread men. Millie, my creative director, decided that gingerbread men look great without heads and that reindeers look better bent up. There was also a huge paws up for the new Kraft Rope trim.
I will make another unbent one when time permits. Maybe during cat nap time!
Who will you make something for as a random act of kindness?
