Share Handmade Kindness: Week 4

I lost track of the SHK items I have made this month. Mostly bookmarks because I could crank those out quickly but I also did some hot cocoa packets and more tea envelopes.

Here is a picture of the packets with cocoa and a bookmark.

Anyway, with bookmarks already die cut, I decicded to use them for giving thanks.
I will give these to everyone and anyone and save some for Thanksgiving dinner.
The stamps are from Lawn Fawn and the die is from Papertrey Ink.
A little Wink of Stella and that's all!
I will enter this into the Simon challenges below.

Share Handmade Kindness Challenge with Tea Envies

It's a gorgeous day here in Buffalo NY, hoping to break a record by reaching 74 degrees! With that said, I am going to make it short and sweet so I can get outside for a bit of yard clean up!

Jennifer McGuire has launched a wonderful campaign this month: Share Handmade Kindness. A nice gesture, a sweet treat, a hug or a handmade card to brighten someone's day!!
Please go check it out !

 While you're at it, also check out the Kind Campaign and consider donating.
This is a great group of people that started this campaign in 2009 to help stop bullying.

So, aside from the cards I've sent out on Monday and Tuesday, I've been busy finishing up some tea envies.   My husband is hosting a luncheon today at his club and through all of the business and social events that take place, I've gotten to know many of them quite well. There are also quite a few of Niagara students joining them today. Anyway, I thought it'd be nice to give them some handmade kindness.

                                   1.   Die cutting Papertrey Ink cardstock

2. Stamped, labels made, twine cut!
3. Stuffed with Chai, teas, and mulled cider. Folded & closed.
4. All 71 tied and finished.   Yay!

Off to enjoy the day, I'm sure it'll be the last one for quite some time!!
Thanks for stopping!!
