A Couple of RAK Cards I Made

First, I'd like to thank everyone who posted comments on my first card. I really appreciate them. I can't believe anyone would look at my blog, let alone comment on anything. Thanks!

Here are a couple of RAK cards I sent out last week. I joined the RAK (Random acts of kindness) group on the Papertrey forum but I've been a little apprehensive about sending anything. I'm really new to stamping and normally only make cards for friends and family but I bit the bullet and sent the first two.

First is a card I sent to Leah for her new baby Ayana. It's a card I made in Amy's card class so I really can't take credit for it. It's all her idea and I just assembled it. I'm not going to post the recipe for this card, but you can find it on Amy's blog if you're interested.

This next card I sent to Heather (hmj) who lives nearby in Frankfurt. Of course, with our wonderful postal service here in Germany the card got to Leah in the states a lot quicker than the one to Heather, even though she's only 20 minutes away.
