#tgifc156- Because Kindness Matters

Hello, and happy Friday!!! We here at TGIF Challenges hope that you are having a great week. Question for you - when was the last time that you were part of a R.A.C.K.? Do you know what a R.A.C.K. is? It's a Random Act of Kindness. Maybe you were on the giving end, maybe you were on the receiving end. Either way, they're pretty awesome. Sometimes it's a little Thank You card, sometimes it's a little gift item, like a wrapped chocolate. This week we would like to inspire you to pass along a R.A.C.K. to someone who really wouldn't expect it, but deserves a little extra in their day.


Before we see what our design team has come up with for their R.A.C.K.s - we wanted to take a moment to thank y'all for playing along with our fun sketch challenge last week. It was hard to choose a winner, but we ultimately chose:

#tgifc152 Technique Time

Happy Friday, everyone!!!!
 Hope you are having a wonderful week, and ready for this week's technique challenge!!! This is a classic technique that might get overlooked a little sometimes, especially with so many multi-step stamp sets available now, but it's still a good one to use!
 If you aren't familiar with it, it is where instead of inking up your stamp on a stamp pad, you use markers to add colors directly to your stamp.This allows you to create some unique looks, including adding multiple colors to one image. You'll definitely want to check out each team member's blog to see how they each used this fun technique!

Before we check out our team's projects for the week, let's take a peek at this week's winner. We want to thank you all for participating, there were some amazing cards, but ultimately, we chose:
