Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Campaign


Hello everyone!! Today marks the beginning of the Share Joy Campaign....The Share Joy Campaign is an invitation to celebrate the joy of card making and to share that joy with others.  The gift of a handmade card can bring a smile to anyone’s face, and we want to bring as many smiles as we can to the faces of people around the world!  Please join us in creating and sending handmade cards that will make a difference in the lives of others.  



This is just the beginning..... we will be donating the cards to various charities as time goes on and we will start by sending this first batch of cards to hospital chaplains throughout the U.S.   TE stamps are not required, unless you want to be considered for the opportunity to have your card featured on the TE Store homepage.

Be sure to go to the TE Share Joy page for all the details!!!


My card features stamps from several Taylored Expressions Stamp Sets.... Branching Out for the branch and leaves, Delightful Day for the flowers, birds, sentiment and bubble, and Garden Party Blooms for the sun. 
The little birds were paper pieced with scraps and the flowers, leaves, and the edge of the word bubble were colored with Copics. The sun was stamped with Summer Sun and the background clouds were sponged on using a home made cloud template and Bashful Blue ink. A little sewing was done around the edges and the twine finishes it off.  

Sharing the Joy of card making is very near and dear to my heart!!! I love to make cards for my family, friends, and church family. I think they love to receive them, too... I remember one year I was a day or two late with my grandson Ryan's birthday card and I din't have time to make one so I actually bought a card...gasp!!! Ryan asked me why I didn't make him a card and I felt sooo bad!!! That's when I realized that everyone feels special when they receive a handmade card especially for them....that is my joy...to make my loved ones feel special!! 

Check out all the designers who are participating in the Share Joy Campaign!!!


Thanks for stopping by....be sure to check out all the details for the Share Joy Campaign!!!

Your card is so cute. Love the flowers and birds. I have a ton of cards I can't donate as the majority of mine are 6X6. If they change their minds about the size let me know.
