Adversity & Motivation Train

I love this's perfect for when you don't need a sympathy card, per se, but a card for someone going through some tough times.

Even a "chin up" doesn't cut it at times, you know?

Keeping it CAS again for

This next card is a collage-style card...filled with different "littles" to come together as a whole~including a recycled tag and rhinestones arranged on a gold heart.

Check out the inspiration this week at

CASE Study Challenge #188
 April Muse, Jaclyn

In her collage card, she arranges lots of little elements to create her card.

I have lots of little scraps floating on my craft desk (I bet most of you do)...hope I get another card done for this challenge to use them up!

I gotta jump on that motivation train when it passes by my station, ya know?

  1. Wow! This is awesome! Love the coloring and the beautiful details.
    What a wonderful project, all of the details are stunning!It's very inspiring.

  2. Your bling has me smitten here! Your designs are beautiful without, but it's that extra bit of sparkle that draws my eye and makes me want to look longer! Everything perfectly placed to accent your design!

  3. I'm in awe over the 'infusion' of motivation your cards have! Reminding people that adversity 'is' part of life, and they can bloom through the experience - well, if that isn't a boost to the morale, I don't know what it! LOVE these!! Hugs~c
