Do a Good Deed Day

I received a card in the mail from a friend who never fails to send Holiday greetings at Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). In the past, there were times that I'd labor over almost 100 intricate cards for friends and family but rarely receive more than a handful in return. I've become disenchanted with the process. I'd decided that I would only send my labors of love to those that sent to me first.

But, in honor of the memory of the 9-11 tragedy, a group called Do A Good Deed is asking people to do  just that today. So, my good deed is to reconsider my decision. Instead of waiting to see who will send a card my way, I'll make some to send before. There are family members that enjoy them so I'll be good. And on that list will be my friend who never forgets.

I played around with text boxes and used an old font called CK Becky (designed by Becky Higgins) to computer generate a sentiment to coordinate with a Stampin Up banner punch. Add some cute patterned papers, bling and a Unity bird stamp that I adore and there you have a cute card with a lot of love but not a lot of labor.

Thanks for coming by. Who can you do a good deed for today?
