  1. I, too, could not find where we were supposed to read and sign up, but I would love to be signed up for the last day of give a ways….reading, watching and seeing the names of the winners has been fun….that was great fun…thanks

  2. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to encourage other family members and friends who I felt needed encouragement. I loved the cards I received and sent them out to my 2 best friends one local and one may states away, my grama who recently lost Grampa to age in July, our daughter in ND whose husband is deployed 3 mons going to be w/out him till Nov, holding down the home, 2 children, opening up an Etsy shop can all be overwhelming, her last recent items on her shop have been donating 100% of the funds to causes, Skin Cancer, MS, Breast Cancer and even to a friend who is trying to adopt a little girl. She is so giving but she also needs encouragement this card was perfect for her,. My mom who just got home from the rehab center yest due to dehydration. My mother in law who is battling Triple Negative stage 3 breast cancer, my neighbor who has been there in prayers for me. I just wanted to name a few I know I can go on for a long time.. In closing these cards hopefully hit the spot where those loved ones I sent them too really needed a bit of encouragement. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to share something special. I did write a special note inside each one making it a personal note btween me and the loved one I sent it to. I even dressed up the front and back of the envelopes w/washi tape, stamps and embellishments!

  3. I was so excited to be receiving these cards to encourage those I know who need it. I was thrilled with the cards after actually seeing the different messages. It felt like a name would come to mind as soon as I would read the card. One of my cards was sent to a friend whose father is battling cancer. Another to a friend with a husband who is very busy with work and has two small children. One will then go to my grandmother who lost my grandfather to cancer last December. He would have had a birthday yesterday. Thank you for helping me to be an encouragement to others.
