YEP ... more encouragement cards!

Hello Friends!

Not only did I feel I needed more encouragement & sympathy cards in my sale boxes for any upcoming shows that MIGHT take place, but a friend also requested some of each so I spent the afternoon on Tuesday creating a few more cards with sentiments & images I had stamped and ready to go.  What do you think??


For this first card, I actually use the sketch from Mojo Monday as my starting point.

 As you can see, I did tweak it a bit to accommodate my rectangular sentiment, but I think you can still see the basic sketch design.  This sentiment is a wooden block stamp by Verses Rubber Stamps called 'Happy Moments' which I have had in my stash for many years. 


 I've used the same stamped sentiment on this second card.  A very simple design, but I think packs a punch none the less!

 Speaking of packing a punch ...
this next card doesn't need much explanation!
Direct and to the point I'd say!
(and GREAT advice!)


 I hope you've enjoyed what I've had to share today!

Wishing you all a fabulous day and upcoming weekend!

As always . . .
