Quick Card -- and a Mini Sermon

Here's a card I made for a friend who got gypped out of her return card in a swap. This has been happening a lot to me lately, too -- I sign up for a one-on-one swap, dutifully send out my card, and then wait by the mailbox only to receive no card back in return. It's SUCH a disappointment!

Well, I can't send cards to myself to make myself feel better (just doesn't seem to work that way, lol), but in this situation I could "make it right" for my friend. :o)

Stamp set: Simple Friendship

Colors: Positively Pink, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White

And: Dotted Wave punch, sponge, chocolate

I have to step up on my soapbox for a minute and remind my fellow stampers: If you make a committment to send a card to someone, PLEASE follow through! (Conversely, if you're not sure if you can follow through, don't say YES to a swap. Or if something does come up that prevents you from following through on time, contact your partner to let them know!) Your actions, as well as any lack of action, makes an impact. There is so much negativity and disappointment in the air these days without you causing more hurt feelings. I learned from this project just how much one card makes a difference to someone when they're having a bad day. I encourage my stamping peers to make a POSITIVE difference in the world around them, even if it's just by following through on their committments!

you are such a kind and caring soul...anyone should be happy to send you a card, because you appreciate it so much. nothing like a card to help you face yet another day!
