Please join me for the Angel Swap. Where putting smiles on people is our only goal!

Here is how it works:
Think of someone that could use Happy Mail. Life is short and we don’t always let people know how important they are to us! There are several reasons (this is just a few) why you might want someone to get happy mail from a “Card Angel”:
Thinking of you
Birthday or Holiday (maybe don’t have a lot of family)
Struggling with ________
Need prayers
Encouragement
Sympathy
Being a parent
Loss of employment
New Christian, old Christian, struggling Christian
Get Well

After signing up you will PM me the name and address of the person you want to receive the Happy Mail. Here are some ideas of what each participant needs to include in their PM. You can add additional information if you want.

1. What is the reason that you want this person to receive a card?
2. If you know what type of things the receiver likes (colors, flowers/no flowers, hobbies, their style, etc). This can help the “Card Angel” make the card…doesn't mean they will use it but some like to have this info. If you don't know that is fine too.
3. The card is supposed to be signed "From a Card Angel" then you can make it Anonymous or state who it is from. Let me know if you want it Anonymous or Name known.
(Doesn’t have to be exact wording can be similar.)
Anonymous - signed “from a Card Angel.” Then a note that states “your name was entered into an Angel Card Swap by a Card Angel that was thinking of you”
Name known – signed “from a Card Angel” have a note inserted that states “______ requested that this card be sent to you”

When sign ups are no longer accepted I will mark the swap as closed and I will randomly assign Card Angels with a recipient. I will PM you the info for your card recipient.

If you sign up, you HAVE to check in ONCE A WEEK. If you are UNABLE to do that, please send me a PM so I know what's going on!

If you want to you may share the card that you are sending. We would love to see it!

Cards may be any size. Use your own unique style to bring a smile to someone's face. (Store bought cards are also accepted)

Sign-ups will be accepted until 06/05/17 - addresses will be given out starting the June 7th. You have until 06/06/17 to PM me your recipient info. You have until 06/30/17 to mail out your angel card to the person that you received.

Spread the word there might be more Card Angels out there that would like to spread Happy Mail!


TO ALL THE PARTICIPATING ANGELS!! As hostess I will randomly pick an angel and send her a card that month. So if you have not sent your address or you have moved please PM me your mailing address.

What's everyone up to this weekend? We had a whooping 95 degrees outside yesterday and it was AWESOME!!! It took a while but we're finally getting some summer weather. I set up a ball sprinkler for the girls yesterday, (I'm babysitting) and they've been begging me all morning to set it up again! I keep telling them "After you're afternoon nap, MAYBE I'll set it up again."

Don't tell them, but I'm pretty sure I'll set the sprinkler up for them PLUS their mini pool.

bis später my friends!! (That would be German for "catch you later")

Got it Kathy! Almost ready to go!

I do have a confession to make. I flaked in May. It seems like a very bad word but it is what it is. So for June, I'm going to have three angels. I'm going to send a card to my May angel, one to my June angel and than I'm going to have one extra angel from the May participants as an apology. I know you'll forgive so thanks in advance!

Getting ready to head to bed. Good Night angels. God bless you richly.

I love being your hostess and I love getting to know new angels! I also love getting feedback on how our angel cards were received. One of the most touching was from a lady who received an anonymous angel card. I just thought I'd share with you so you know that YOU are a blessing to others in so many ways. Here is what she posted on facebook the day she received her card:

I received a card today in the mail from a sender I did not know. Inside was a beautiful purple & blue handmade card with two uplifting words of encouragement on two tags. I cried. I don't know who this person is but they thought of me when they made this and even though times are rough and I wonder how I've made it this far over the last 6 months....just restores my faith and belief in the Lord. He knows I have questioned it a lot lately. I know I'm not alone even though I feel like it. Thank you for this card I needed it on the one month anniversary of my aunts passing.

Kayla, such a busy woman! I was out this morning trimming a rose bush & a shrub, but the wind is horrible today. I am staying in the rest of the day.

I got my card done & mailed today. I will try to get it posted later today. It felt good sending a card to cheer up someone!!

Morning!

We're getting rain! We don't have as dry as other areas in the Dakotas but we still want to rain. Some areas in South Dakota have been declared a disaster area because of no rain. Their crops are about kaput due to lack of rain.

I have one of my cards ready to be mailed out today!

Hey Robin. Our church shared the simulcast of the Harvest America event. I had planned to go with a friend but then that afternoon/evening she was busy and wasnt able to attend, so I didnt either. Did you and your husband just attend or were you involved with it some how? Bet it was amazing!

Oh my goodness, Ro!
That is a beautiful card, my dear friend.

My hubby and I were representing our church, we were part of the prayer team.
It was absolutely fantastic, we had many other Pastoral staff, from other churches as well.
You would have loved it, Ro❤
It was a very moving and heartwarming night 👏

I'm up way past my bed time...

No Ro you can't leave out the spinach! Well you can substitute 1 cup Kale for 2 cups spinach! And you can substitute 1 cup yogurt for 1 cup water! Or one cup fruit juice or even one cup soy milk. The varieties are endless. Robin convince them how good it is!

Going to add Ro's card to the top and give her a mailbox! Than I've gotta run. Making cheesecake cupcakes for dessert. Hope they turn out.

Sorry Robin, but you won't see this angel picking spinach or kale for a morning juicer. Number one, I don't have a garden & number two it would only be kale!! Now the cheesecake cupcakes I would definitely get up in the morning for!

Ro what a lovely card & what a blessing it will be. I am really liking this idea of sending cards to people we don't know just to make their hearts smile when they get happy mail!

Kayla, are we suppose to post our card here?
Have a great day sweet ones!

Thanks angels for the compliments on my card. Its from my growing stash youve likely seen before.

Marylou, most of us share the cards we send out. Are you still able to share yours with us? If not thats ok...

Ive been trying to plan a session of 'Card Making with Ro' for the seniors where I work. Normally I would have had a session by now. Ive been having a problem with getting a helper. I had been waiting for a lady to get back from Arizona whom I thought would be helping. She got back and didnt tell me. I contacted her and she told me she would call me when she got back from her brothers and I havent heard back from her. Soo...maybe she doesnt want to help and is one of those people that wont say anything and just hopes Ill go away. Im hoping I now have another helper but she and her family are dealing with the loss of her Mom right now. The Mom was a resident and my next helper still is a resident at the senior apartments where I work. So far Ive made only a couple example cards for them and so far I only have 2 card kits made up. Its slooow going. AND sometimes Im just not in the right mood but I really do enjoy it all. Cuz of all the fun preparations, I possibly get more out of it than the residents do

I hope your all having a good wk.

Evening!

My cheesecake turned out so pretty!

Marylou - It's up to you whether or not you want to share your card. Some do, others don't. But we love to see! -- and we are also glad to have you here with us.

Ro - Hope you find someone to help you out! I'm sure it brightens the seniors' day!

Good Night my angels!

reading along. In mad dash to get Father's Day and birthday cards done for customers.

No spinach in any form for me. I do like asparagus. No vegetable smoothies for this girl.

Hi sweet angels! Finally got around to posting my card.

Kathy, good to know someone else doesn't like spinach & asparagus is ok if done right! I have to admit I can be picky about my vegies & a few fruits!

Warm in Colorado today & the Ride the Rockies bicyclists are in our town....all 2,000 of them!! They head out again in the morning. Such a nightmare for people traveling the mountains, but they do it every year! It would be a miracle for me to get up my driveway much less a mountain!

Later............

OMG Marylou you nailed that card!! Tarah will absolutely love love love it! She is a vintage gal. She is an artist and travels painting murals. You nailed her style without me even telling you...God is soooo AWESOME!! Oh and the scripture is just perfect...I will bet she cries when she open the envelope! Good tears of believing that scripture and needing to hear it.
Thank you

So I have to tell you a little secret... I do not like spinach either! I tasted it once as a kid and it had no taste and I didn't like and all those years I have not touched it again. BUT I drank it in a smoothie this week. I will not make a habit of it but it wasn't bad.

2,000 bicyclists! Wow. That's a lot in one place. I hope they enjoy.

Marylou I LOVE your card. It's so pretty!

Hi angels!

Shalene, Ive been saying your name correctly then

Well, my husband and friend took off a while ago and are heading to a Quigley Black Powder Shoot in Forsyth, Montana. Do you remember the movie, Quigley Down Under? Doug has gone to this shoot for many years. Hes never done well enough to win any awards but he did get a shooting replica of the rifle that was used by Tom Selleck in the movie! I only went once to this big shoot, I ended up with a little heat stroke, so I have no desire to go again. We dont have a nice camper or even a tent to hang out in and there are no trees for shade unless one climbs the hills way behind all the action. I do like to shoot guns and I used to like hunting but the competitions just are not for me.

Do I remember Quigley Down Under??? Of course I do!!! One of my favorite movies & Tom Selleck was so gorgeous, still is!!! Sounds like fun for your hubby & friend. Does that mean you get to craft all weekend?

Kathy, thank you for your kind words. When we let God take over He seems to get the job done better than when we try to do it ourselves. Fun to bless others!

Kayla, thank you as well for the card compliment.

Off to my craft table & staying in today as it is about 90 outside!

Later

So I received this text this morning from Tarah:

"I received a beautiful card in the mail. I pulled it out of the mail box late last night when I got home. Such a heavy warm blanket to my frazzled insides. Thank you dear friend. Thank you for lavishing kindness in this way."

She also said that it brought more than joy...belonging.

Thank you again for being an angel to my friend.

Hi Marylou. Yes, Im gonna spend lots of time with paper, pretty normal for me since we rarely do anything. Ive got a LOT of cutting to do for 150 Bible School kids. That should keep me busy for a little while. Ive never done such a job before so, I have no clue how long itll take me

Just got in...

Thank you Kathy for sharing that with us!

And thank you Marylou for joining us this month!

On another note ... I will be offline Saturday - late Monday. I will be attending a friend's wedding, the third one this year! Seems like everyone's getting hitched!
