Butterfly Birthday Wishes...

One of my fellow spouses has a birthday coming up so I made her a CAS card to wish her a happy birthday.

I stamped the image from Bliss in Rasberry Ripple on Neenah.  Butterfly from SU's Beautiful Butterflies, then ran it through my CB and sponged some White Craft Ink on it.  Sentiment from The Cat's Pajamas Stamps.  This is my entry for JUGS 171-adding ink to your dry embossing.  This is my first time playing along in a "Just Us Girls" Challenge=).

I posted this on fb and thought that I would share this with my fellow stamping/crafting friends since so many of you do RAK's all the time=) 

Today is Ditch New Year's Resolution Day=(.  As I mentioned in My Year in Review post I didn't really set any New Year's Resolutions, but my goal is to continue to work on being the best me I can be and RAK/PIF, give...more.  A few days ago I read a friends fb post about her thanking a couple who fed a hungry man a meal and the couple explained they were in a race group to complete these tasks for the ladies 40th birthday.  I commented on the post and mentioned that I'd be turning 40 this year and maybe I should do a RAK countdown to my birthday.  My friend said I should and post daily RAK's and challenge  everyone to do them.

I decided to do just that!  Here's what I came up with- since there's 29 weeks until my birthday...I'll post challenges once a week with a few ideas of things you can do. Some weeks you will be asked to complete two RAK's and the week of February 11th-17th, you'll be asked to do daily RAK's since it's RAK Week.

So...who's with me???

Week #29 (counting down)- July 17th-23rd:

Pick one of the following-
Hand write an elderly loved one a letter
Make a pie for a neighbor
Bake brownies and bring them into the office
Make soup for a sick friend
Or if you're able to...donate blood.

I'd love for you to join in and share which one you picked, what you did, etc. 

Thank-you so much for stopping by!
Have a great evening!
