Your cute tag cutouts are so adorable! I never would have thought to do that with a tag. Great idea! It seems that everyone is using 'puns' on their stamps this year. Everyone is using the Kindness Matters and I know that it does. I'm always trying to remember that when I hold the door open for someone and they don't say Thank You. I love how colorful and adorable your cards are. Thank you for showing them to us and for giving us the chance to win something. Let's go to the hop!

Hi, Sarah! Your cards are all so amazing! I'm especially fond of animals so those are my favorites - that kitty warms my heart with his cute little glasses! Love all the punny sentiments too! I really like how you used the positive and negative on the kindness cards - the colors look so different on the dark cardstock - gorgeous!
