Default F4A395...An encouraging word goes a long way...9/15/2017

F4A395

An Encouraging word really does go a long way. Think about any hand written notes you have received that have cheered, encouraged, and supported you. If you are like me, you have a small treasure trove of these that are sweet and delightful to reread from time to time. Today is the day to create a card or two to encourage or buoy someone one up! Perhaps make three and think of a few friends who could use a kind word, a smile, or "hey I though to of you today!"


Today, the gallery will be filled with happy and encouraging cards! (I really hope that you send them out too!)


Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Hi Dawn, Thanks for the challenge! I have two for today...I think they are both pretty encouraging...I was going to use something about You are awesome but it didn't really fit with the scene.

Had to do a second card for this as I wanted to use another sentiment with encouraging words:
