Join "JT's Monthly Aloha RAK Club"

ETA: 1 New Rule... scroll down to see...

Hello Foxy Sisters.....

Here's what's going on today. I hope everyone is enjoying their **NEW** cattys.... Nope, my catty's haven't arrived yet.... am I like the only SU! Demonstrator in the entire SU! Nation that STILL DIDN'T GET MY DANG CATALOGS!?!?!!!! Ho hum... it's ok - I'll be patient for one more day... but here's something I'd like to share with all of you....

My Upline, Stampin' Sister n' Dahling Friend Teri n' I did this RAK exchange. We had so much fun, and were both **delighted** to receive something made from each other. So last night, as we were talking about our RAK's for the next month - we decided that we'd like to open it up to others to join in. You, our readers, blog sistahz, our stampin' sistahz.... what do you think?

Well, first things first - here are the items that Teri RAK'd me with. The snowman card was CASED from Vera Matson whom Teri found at SCS. I heard this woman's gallery is spectacular - so we better go check it out!!! These are so cute, aren't they?!?! The monkeys are from SU!'s "Zoofari", and the Sky paper is the new SU! DS paper. Thanks Sistah Teri - I totally love that I have these to add to my collection!!

Here is what I RAK'd Teri with. It is a "Joy Fold" card, and I used one of my newest bee stamps that I received recently from Stampendous. DS Paper and CS are all SU!, I also used the Designer Label Punch. Oh! BTW - I am also submitting this card for Maria's TIC Challenge - as she's having a "3-Way Baby!" challenge - meaning that you've got to submit a tri-fold card. But as I said, it was also the RAK that I gave to Teri.

Ok, now that you've seen what we've RAK'd each other with (hahaha! "Whacked Each Other With" - like we whacked each other over the head, huh?!!) - We'd like to open this opportunity for any of you to join in.......please read the rules below, and let me know if you'd like to join - please won't cha please?!?!

  13. These rules will be posted each month, and are subject to change (for all the right reasons).

What is a "RAK"?! R.A.K is an acronym for "Random Act of Kindness" - meaning that you're giving something out of the kindness of your heart. 1 RAK once a month to someone that will totally appreciate your hardwork, and awesome artwork is so priceless.....
