Default WT262 - A Little Encouragement (03/18/10)

We all need a little encouragement sometimes, don't we? Paper crafting gifts and cards is such a wonderful way to show we care that I thought spreading around a little encouragement would make a wonderful challenge today.... ways to share encouragement. Whoever you are, I'm sure you know someone who is going through hard times. A health or family issue, the loss of a job, or one of a myriad of other things. Let's face it. Life is not easy all the time. Today I'm challenging you to a two part challenge...create an encouragement card or project and for the second part...make sure you give it away! No tucking it into a drawer for some day down the road. I know there is someone out there that needs it NOW. Sound doable? Let's spread the love.

Please remember to put WT262 in your keywords section and post a link back here. We'd all love to see your work! Please link only newly uploaded projects for this challenge. Let's create and give and let's do it all today, or tomorrow...as soon as you can find the time.

My sample: All Things are Possible

WT262 Gallery Submissions

Happy creating!

Julia

Our Dog passed away last night. I was crying as I made this card, and kept thinking that the sentiment I used really brought the memories of our trips to the state park with Dog.

Here's today's submission....

Does a sympathy card count as encouragement? If so, that is what I am making to send out today. But will it count for the challenge?

I got some new goodies in the mail today and I just HAD to use them to make a card! This is a generic one that will be used when the need arises. Thanks, Stef for an inspiring challenge.
