On Sunday I taught a lesson to a group of women at my church.  I talked about how there is always someone they could write an encouraging note to.  I challenged them to think of someone who “lights” up their life in some way, whether it be by example, their smile, the way they make people feel, and so on.  Then I gave each of the ladies in the group this card:

Used a simple white card base - added some yellow pattern paper and a strip of orange washi tape - then used an embossing folder to add the swirls - on a 1" square I stamped this lightbulb - in the corner stamped You Light Up My Life

My hope was that by having the card in hand they would accept the challenge and go forth and send out letters of encouragement.  This is something that is so important to me because EVERYONE likes and needs to hear nice, kind words full of true praise!! So I know you might not have this card to send but I would love it if you thought of someone who “Lights” up your life and then you wrote to them and let them know!!

I hope you will, if you do and you want to tell me about it, then leave me a little message!! Have a beautiful day!! daisies girl

    Taunya! I’m borrowing this idea! I’ve never thought of layering the papers together and THEN embossing…too smart 😉
