RAK Blog Hop August 2017 with Donna Gray Stampin Up!

Hello Welcome to the August Random Act Of Kindness Blog Hop. I am Donna Gray & I am an Independent
 Stampin Up!®  Demonstrator from a small Suburb called Goonellabah Situated in The Northern Rivers Area of New South Wales, Australia.
This is my first time blog hopping with the Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Blog Hop Group I have only been a Demonstrator with Stampin Up! for just on 12 months but I have been card making for about 6 years now.
Just wanted to show you a picture of all the lovely RAK Cards I have received in the last month.

I love being involved in this awesome group of talented crafty people. The names of the crafters that have sent these cards are Marion Flemming WA Aust Tonya Thompson Ohio USA Cassie Comfort Vic Aust Kim Fiore Ohio USA 
Cynthia Morgan Indianapolis USA Renee Mengel QLD Aust 
& Alison Davini California.
This group has 2 events each month one is just an encouragement card & the other is a Birthday or holiday celebration This group is world wide & I love sending cards to people in Australia & I also try to send at least 4 to overseas countries. To my surprise since I have been sending overseas I average 2-3 a month I receive from overseas in return.

These are some of my Birthday RAK Cards that I sent out this month I have used The Happy Birthday Thinlet for the sentiment on the front of the card. You may be saying how did I get that rainbow colour effect??? Am I right???
It was not difficult at all I just used our whisper white card stock which I backed with our wonderful Sizzix Adhesive sheets and then I just used my Sponge Daubers and coloured the whisper white with colours to make a rainbow I then cut the Happy Birthday Thinlet out. Using the new in colours Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst just gives this card a lovely bright summery look.

For my RAK Encouragement cards I used the lovely Daisey Delight bundle and as you can see this beautiful Bundle speaks for itself. I could not put it down all weekend when I got it as I missed out on it at the beginning of our New Catalogue Launch as it was so popular but it is now back in stock But if I were you if you were thinking about ordering it I would do so now as lord nows how long it will stay in stock for this time
You can order online with me Daisey Delight Bundle Online now!!!

I made 2 similar cards I just changed the colours and as I said this bundle really speaks for itself 
If you would like to order any of these items I have used I sell them all in my online store
