Encouragement Card Using CTMH Dreamin Paper and DS4J Martini Tangled Colored

Hi to all my readers.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I haven't felt good; so I hope I make sense today on this blog.  I am going for an endoscopy Tuesday; which will be the day that this goes live.  I may not be able to get back on here to give an update before this post goes live.  

You have one more week to enter the Mid-Challenge for Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - Challenge 98  New. This should be an easy one; a new job, new baby, new home, etc.  Be sure to check on both the main challenge and the Mid-Challenge; so you can see all the fabulous creations by both teams of the DT.

I chose DS4J Martini - Tangled Colored for my card.  Isn't she cute?  I made this card for one of my granddaughters.  She went to work at a Pet Store; which is her first job.  She is shy around people she doesn't know; so I used the two sentiments inside to try to encourage her.  The two sentiments came from Paulette at Create With TLC; which has a lot of free sentiments on the blog.  Click here for her shop; fabulous Vintage digis and more.
