A Clip Art Challenge

This is a sample sheet from Dover Publications. They offer copyright free images and if you sign up for their email they will send updates and sample pages.

The challenge for you. Print this page any size and use any combination of these images to make a note card or post card. Add your materials, findings, etc. Leave a note about your image in my comments, post it on your blog, or email me a copy of the image and I will post here. My email Now for the really fun part. Choose a person who inspires you and randomly mail the card to them. Unsigned.

I received an unsigned art card in the mail recently and it simply said "thanks for inspiring me to be my best." It was one of the most rewarding pieces of mail I have ever received. I communicate with a lot of people and I have no idea who sent this. It may have even been one of my daughters or a friend. I only know it was anonymous and encouraging.

As we see the art - we will be inspired by you. Whoever receives the card will be encouraged by you. The random act of kindness you generate will spill over and the benefits will be many and widespread.

I thank you all for being a part of my life. Have fun with this. Please share your art. This doesn't have to be a long drawn out thing - just a quick and thoughtful note with a personal touch among all the junk mail and bills that we find every day in the mailbox. I promise your recipient will smile.

Hey if you receive a card - let me know too.

Who's playing along here???

Have a beautiful day.
