...Encouraging Words Project

Happy Monday, everyone! It's time for our September "Encouraging Words" Project Parade over at the Verve Blog. I have a very close friend who has been going through a rough patch lately, so I decided to alter a door hanger, and create a 3X3 coordinating card for her. I used the "Happiness Found" stamp set on the hanger, and the "Wishing You" set on the card. Let's take a look at each part of this project!

Beautiful as always; I know your friend will treasure the gift.

May I ask where you got your door hanger? I have a customer that would like me to make one - but I haven't been able to find one to alter.

Thanks for the inspiration; you never fail to inspire!
