Gifts of Encouragement

Does someone in your life need to be encouraged? I have been thinking for a long time about how I can be a better encourager.  The first two cards that I made for someone elicited a very emotional response.  The first person was in tears and the second gave me a hug.  They were totally surprised that someone had their welfare in mind so much that they took the time to make a home made card.  That was a long time and many cards ago.  Today, sometimes I am better at making cards than I am at giving them.  I'm working on that. :)  Thoughts of encouragement are what inspired today's craft.  This was made with a cup from Michaels and the Cricut cartridge "Just Because".  A little styrofoam and a wooden skewer.  I have a few more pictures to follow.

What a sweet idea for someone who needs encouragement, or just a giggle to gift them a lift!!!
