{My Karing Card}

Hey, y'all!  I'm still alive even though I haven't been very present on this blog the past week or so.  I have been on spring break, and even though I had all these plans to blog and do a bajillion projects, I really just ended up relaxing.  And that's okay because I needed to do that.  :)  I did get a few things done over break that I will post about later, but today I just wanted to share the card I received in the mail as part of the Karing Card Club.
The Karing Card Club is a simple, fun "club" that the lovely ladies above are kind enough to host every month.  You sign up to be part of the club, and you're paired with another blogger.  You send a card to that person based on the month's theme--March's was encouragement--and she sends you one in return.  I was paired with Emily from Eco-Friendly Emily.  I sent her this card.  (The tutorial for the card will be at Through the Eyes of the Mrs. later this month.)
In return, Emily sent me this beautiful card.
I love the image of the little girl and the bubbles on the front!  Inside she included a very sweet, encouraging little note.  It was so nice to get an encouraging piece of mail rather than a bill or an advertisement!  If you're interested in joining the club this month, you can sign up {HERE}.  I'll be back later this week with an exciting announcement and a furniture revamp.  I can't wait because I've missed y'all! <3


  1. great idea to swap cards. It is nice to get fun mail rather then bills once in a while isnt it?
    have a great week

  2. I especially love the card you made for your recipient, love the shape and how you put embellishments on. Her card to you was adorable also.
    Good for you for using your Spring break for what it's for, a BREAK. Your mental health makes a big difference in how you're able to deal with what life hands you on a daily basis so it's smart to take care of yourself. I'm so happy that your generation has realized that and is practicing that. It's not selfish to take care of your own life.
    I was always told I was selfish to do things I wanted to do, should always do for others first. Happy Week

  3. It is just so nice to send some snail mail. I am starting to appreciate the fun in making a creative card and should be doing it more often, particularly to my far-apart family. Love the card, Bethany and also so glad to hear I am not the only one sitting on my butt during Spring break. I should currently be cleaning and/or preparing lessons.....needless to say I've been watching TV and eating chocolate.

    Take care,

  4. So happy you participated! Hope you'll join us again in April :) Both cards are beautiful! I loved swapping cards - happy mail is always a good thing!

  5. Lovely idea. Snail mail is becoming a sign of taking time and showing thoughtfulness. Thanks for keeping it going.

  6. What a lovely idea!! Writing a letter or a card is really a lost art.


  7. How fun...and your card is beautiful!

  8. Isn't it too sad that people that work so hard at a job or as a Mother and wife feel sorta guilty for taking it easy on an established break? That's what a break is for, to recharge, rest, relax, have some fun, be lazy if you want. Everybody needs to recharge once in awhile so why not enjoy that "break" for what it is.
    Your card is so cute and the one you received is very sweet also. It's nice to get something in the mail, shows you're cared about by other people. I'ts nice to say sweet things to people you care about on the internet but there's just nothing like something in your hand. Happy Days


Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to leave an awesome comment! :)
