Hope Happens

Debra Davison Blog 3 Comments

Deb Davison with my SSD post for May :

HOPE is the feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. It could be something as simple as hoping that the cafeteria is serving taco salad for lunch today. Or it could be hoping for strength when waiting for test results, facing an illness or dealing with a struggle in your life. I am involved in several letter writing / postcard groups and I send large amounts of mail to friends far and wide. The stamp set that I used for these clean and simple cards is one of my favorites. It only takes a moment to send a few words of hope to a friend or co-worker or acquaintance.  Hope happens when you reach out to someone and let them know that they are not alone.

  • I started with a Project Life “Charming” edition Core Kit that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I love to use journaling cards as background paper for stamped images. These cards have enough blank space for either a note or inspirational quote, if you would like to add one.
  • I used several different card bases – some were Ombre, others were embossed or wood-grain. Several of the journaling cards were placed at an angle and others centered on the cards.
  • A butterfly was stapled to the upper right corner of one of the cards before it was adhered to the base.
  • All Cancer Schmancer images were stamped with Memories India Black Ink . My Bazzill Marathon Tape Runner was used to adhere the journaling cards to the card bases.

I hope that you enjoyed my cards for today. These are an easy way to create a quick card for any occasion and this Journaling card kit that I used today has 576 cards included. I usually place a coordinating blank card inside to write a note on. The options are endless. Send a little bit of hope in an envelope today !!
