When I think of kindness, I think of hugs. I searched everywhere, but I couldn't find an svg card of arms hugging which wad my initial idea. Since I am not artistically inclined I couldn't make one, but perhaps one of my bloggie friends may be able to come up with something (wink, wink). So, I searched around and ended up finding a very cute file to color instead. I tried to figure out where exactly it came from, but google images just seemed to have the image. The sentiment, "Kindness: You never miss an opportunity to make others feel good," is from Create with TLC.

My other day was World Toilet Day, definitely something to be thankful for. I felt this could easily be made into a friendship card. I created the toilet shaped card by resizing an oval and welding them with a small rectangle in the middle in SCAL. Then, I covered the top and made an open oval for the inside to complete the effect. I made my own sentiment, "I would hold your hair." It's pretty basic, but I felt any embellishments would just be gross... I thought about some swirly blue in the bowl, or some yarn as hair, but I couldn't bring myself to do those.

Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on December 1, 2012 for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
