Cheryl posted on her blog about sending a hand written note to a friend, which she was inspired by Kelly-Anne and she shares a link on her blog HERE . Of course the first person that came to mind was Cheryl, and I can't send a hand written note without sending a card right :)
I get so many positive and wonderful encouragement comments on my blog, but Cheryl comes to mind because you can just feel the Love of God pouring out from her whenever she comments on anyone's blog (you know what I mean if you are blessed to have her drop by your blog) or in her posts. Not only does she share such lovely creations, but she has a wonderful way with words and shares her love for Christ in a beautiful way also, the Holy Spirit is shining through this woman and I just needed to send her a note expressing that to her. If you want to see some lovely cards and be lifted up and go away with a smile visit her blog.
I had to make a bigger card this time to accommodate the size of this die and when I was putting it all together I realized it wasn't quite big enough to fit after all, but it gave me some room to add the ribbon which I dyed with distress inks. The flowers have a shimmer to them and that is because I colored them with Inka Gold, here is a You tube video showing you what it is just in case you haven't heard about it. I bought it on our way home from our trip we stopped into a scrapbook store that was along the highway and she had a big assortment of them, I only bought one color just to try them and it works very nicely. She mentioned in her video that you can use your fingers but I have heard other places that the oils on your fingers will contaminate the paints and make them go bad so please use an applicator they are too expensive to have go bad on you.
Heartfelt creations -- Delicate Asters, centers were colored w/markers with added Diamond Stickles to them, leaves colored w/markers

I just realized I forgot to write down the paper I used.
Now it is your turn, I know if you are like me you are so busy making cards for Birthdays and other occasions that come up that you don't have time to just send a card to brighten someone's day or to let them know how much they mean to you, but I encourage you to do so, Thanksgiving is coming and that would be the perfect time to send a card or hand written letter to let someone know that you are thankful they are in your life.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and the encouragement and just sharing of life you do with me,
