Calling All Sistahs – July Encouragement Challenge

mood board.jpg

Its time for our 3rd Encouragement challenge over at Casual Fridays Calling All Sistahs challenge blog, where any style of cards are welcome, as long as its a card to lift someone’s spirit,  and this wonderful mood blog should help you to do so!


I was inspired by the hot air balloon and the blue sky in the mood blog make this card using CAS-ual Fridays Floating stamp set. I wanted to convey a message in my card, so I coloured a windy sky and a dark sea with my Distress inks with the hot air balloon seemingly being tossed about, but actually being blown towards brighter skies… Whew! You got all that with one look right?! 😉 :))

Its true though, all those cliches; “Its Darker before the Dawn”, “When God closes a door he opens a Window”, “When you hit bottom you can only go up”… I personally have experienced it, many times… Yet after all those really tough times, here I am, living a dream, with a loving family, great friends and a passionate hobby obsession! So if you’re going through some tough times at the moment, hang in there! Reach out to your friends or family, your God, meditate… or leave me a comment with your email address and I’ll send you a card!
