Stampendous: Tired but Inspired

Wow! The holidays can be so exhausting...and yet, they can also be very inspiring. All the rush of emotions and feelings are also a reminder of what inspires us in whatever we do. Family. Faith. Love. Even hate can be inspiring. It's what we do with these inspirations in our lives that make a difference.

On a more simple scale, just taking the time to demonstrate kindness and empathy toward those who are suffering, mentally and/or physically, to create a gift card that says it all. Stampendous has the perfect sentiment set for just these occasions. The Perfectly Clear Sincere Sentiments set has wonderful encouraging comments for friends, family, and acquaintances. Especially, when highlighted by a soft stamping of the Perfectly Clear Lacy Ovals. Soft green is such a soothing color, so I kept my designs in shades of green...Memento New Sprout and Cottage Ivy inks, soft iridescent May Arts' ribbon, and beautiful WorldWin Treasures cardstock in Cool Mint.

I highly recommend making several of these, using the various sentiments, to have on hand. The perfect thought at the perfect time.

Check the Stampendous blog for more inspiration this week. Be sure to play along and link to the December challenge. You can find the details HERE.
