Default Kindness Is Showing Support

Challenge Title: KISS Technique
Hostess: KelliJo
Keyword: HYCCT1320
Date: Sunday, October 20, 2013

Last year I had THE best time with this challenge, I am HONORED to be able to hostess a challenge this year! My mom is a 27 year Breast Cancer Survivor, my Sister is a 14 year Ovarian Cancer Survivor and my Grammy was taken from us at 84 with what they used to call "wild fire cancer".... Seeing the love pour out, reading the stories of those affected by this disease just made me that much happier to do this little thing called make a card.

I used the KISS technique... I kissed my block though! Yep, I'm not much of a rule follower! SO...I inked up my block and then stamped/kissed the block then put the block onto my paper! tee hee... when you don't have a solid stamp image... WING IT!

I chose KISS because it stands for Kindness in Showing Support... If it's all you can do, please show some kindness and mail some cards!!!! It means SO much to SO many!!!!

We have two tutorials for this technique - first, standard kissing technique and then kissing with a twist!.
