Encouragement Cards with Laurie Schmidlin

Good morning!  One of my favorite reasons for giving cards is to encourage and uplift someone!  It brings me so much joy to know that something I create could make a difference in someone else's life!  I love that!
GD You Are a Treasure
My first card is a soft, floral card that could be used for any occasion.  I think any occasion is the perfect one to let someone know they are treasured!  :-)  The soft, warm tones of the Laced with Grace collection add to the lovely vintage feel so nicely!
   GD Never Too Old

While my first card was more soft and pretty, this card is more bold with a slight grunge feel to it.  I just adore the Love Games collection and especially love mixing and matching the papers!

I'm so glad you joined me here today!  I hope I have inspired you to share a little encouragement to those around you!  Hugs, Laurie
