Cards of Encouragment

I enjoy receiving words of encouragement. 
Over the years, I have saved notes here and there from friends and aquaintances who have brightened my day with their kind words.  Do you have notes of encouragement tucked into special places too?
Be sure to pay it forward and encourage someone today!

Here are a couple of inspiring cards using snazzy brads from The Eyelet Outlet!

Aren't these Scissors Brads so eye catching?
I used bits of bling strips (pearls) for a bit of color interest.
But those scissors make a great statement!


This card is great for the youthful...or youthful at heart!
I love the playful colors of the pinwheel brads.
I used matching colors in bling strips.  They just POP! against the dark eggplant card base.
A nice change from black, don't you think!


Sentiments come from Paper Makeup Stamps.
Tip:  Micro Glue Dots ® are the perfect adhesive if you need to restick a rhinestone!
The Bling Strips are plenty sticky...but every once in a while I need to restick one that I have handled too much.

Thanks so much for all your encouraging comments and for stopping by today!
