*Cute Cards* and *kind words*

Have you ever been into card making? I remember when I was in elementary school and my mom and all the ladies from church would get together for big stamp parties from companies like Dots and stampin' up. Well anyways my mom still has a ton of her stamping stuff and she doesn't use it all that often any more so i borrowed it! It's been such a fun thing to do plus it saves me so much money on buying cards for birthdays and weddings. Here are a few of the cards I made over the summer...

I'm trying to use up the rest of my paper and make as many cards as I can because the next time we get together I'm giving the stamping supplies back to my mom.

Since I've been making the cards I've sort of been re-inspired to take time to write to people. I easily take for granted how encouraging a kind note can be to someone...and it really doesn't take that much time and in this case any money! Plus Christ calls us to encourage one another and build each other up! I want to be better at this...I hope you have a wonderful Thursday! :)
