Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Campaign

Hello!  Taylor and Jon have started a wonderful cause called the Share Joy campaign!  The Share Joy campaign is an invitation to celebrate the joy of card making and to share that joy with others. The gift of a handmade card can bring a smile to anyone’s face, and we want to bring as many smiles as we can to the faces of people around the world! Please join us in creating and sending handmade cards that will make a difference in the lives of others!

I just love this idea!  Taylor and Jon are going to be choosing different charities to send the cards to.  To start, they are sending the first batch of cards to hospital chaplains throughout the U.S.  They would love your help!  Please visit the TE Share Joy page for all the info on how you can be a part of this wonderful campaign!

Card making brings me so much joy!  I have always been creative, and have tried many different arts and crafts.  Once I found card making, I was hooked!  I just love bringing images to life with color and accents and I also love seeing the joy on people's faces when I give them my cards:)  It makes people feel special when they receive a card that takes so much time and effort.  Here is a card that I made for the Share Joy campaign:

I haven't had a chance to play with this set called Garden Shed and have been anxious to ink it up!  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.  I used the Cloud Border Die to sponge my bg and added a sun using the Pinking Circle Stacklets as well as a Circle Nestability to make the sun.  The sentiment was stamped onto a Simple Tabs die and I added the flags at the bottom using a Banner Stacklets 1 die.  The dp is Simple Stories Vintage Bliss.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Make sure you check out more awesome projects for the Share Joy campaign from these talented ladies and then get stamping and join the cause!
