Encouragment Cards

A lady at work saw a card I made with this quote so she requested this quote for her BF husband who is going through some health issues. (The card for her BF is next!)
I used the colors from the May Inspirational Card Challenge – color category. I used MFTWSC182 sketch which was one of the sketches in last months April Inspirational Challenge. I used all scraps for this card.

Hang In There2

So the lady at work wanted a card for her BFF whose husband has been injured and not healing. Been a long road but they finally found out he has something that keeps him from healing. There is no cure but they can manage it now that they know he has it. My co-worker wanted to encourage her friend during this time. She found the “hang in there” card I did for my friend and said she wanted something similar. This is what I came up with. I used MOJO Sketch #446 for my inspiration.

1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – Favorites Category – used a past MOJO sketch.

I hope Deedee is sitting down when she sees this!! She is going to pass out that I got it done in the FIRST week instead of within hours of the challenge ending!! Miracles never cease!! 🙂

I needed a card for my brother who is struggling to make ends meet while paying child support so I got him a Wal-Mart gift card to send to him. So I needed a card to go with it so I’m so glad Deedee’s image was this adorable monkey. I batted my eyelashes while asking my husband to remove the cupcake from the monkey’s hand so I could have him hold a sign. I cut off his curl hair because I wanted it to look more manly for my masculine card. Yes, I know I have issues!! 🙂 I found this scrap piece of stripped paper and knew it was perfect for this image. Those glass tiles are at least 8 years old…am I the only one that still owns them??

I decided since I had a little bit of paper left over I would make a couple more. This time I did it in a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 square and made it a birthday card!
