Encouraging Words: Day 5

Hello friends, it's Teresa bringing to you day five of the encouraging words project parade. I so much want to encourage others, so this was a truly exciting project for me, I have a very special friend who will be receiving this gift. Hi Kim, I hope you are encouraged and know you are very special to me.

I found this small easel at the dollar store and thought it would be perfect holding 4 x4 encouraging cards. I made seven different cards, one for each day of the week. I also made this 4 x4 box to hold everything. I have to agree with Amber, Julee has brought to you the best stamps around for encouragement. I used Miracles Blossom for the box tag and Happiness Found for the card on the easel.

Stamps used in clockwise order, starting in the upper left:
Psalm 121: 1-2, Happiness Found, Hebrews 11:1, and Philippians 4:13

I used the fabulous dp from My Mind's Eye 29th Street Market Collection. I used lots of bling, a gorgeous red ribbon, SU baja breeze ribbon, buttons, and scoring. I wanted each card to be uniquely different and personal. I hope you can play along with us and make someone 's day with a encouraging word. I really enjoy looking at every one's creation.

Stamps used in clockwise order starting from the top left:
1 Chronicles 16:34, Happiness Found, Matthew 11:28, and 1 Peter 5:7

So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your card or project focused on encouraging words or friendship. Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not show 'em a little love? ;) And, as with all of our project parades, we've got prizes!

To enter, just link up your creation focused on encouraging words or friendship to the Mr. Linky widget on the DAY 1 POST before midnight MST on Sunday, October 18. One lucky stamper will win a $35 gift certificate to the Verve Store. And for another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout out in the comments as they parade their fabulous creations inspired by this month's theme. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (Oct 5 - 17) will win their choice of any Verve set. Have fun!
