Card stock is great for homemade cards. I like to make cards that fit into 5″ x 7″ frames with encouraging words for everyday living. Some are funny, others more serious. I like to use Scripture from various modern versions of the Bible to set the mood for the day, enlighten folk and give direction for their future. I give these on special occasions: birthdays, anniversaries, Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving and so on. Usually people appreciate the personal touch and keep them displayed for years.

Sometimes I have even sold these framed cards. I also use this stock to provide a 7-day group of ‘start the day’ cards, with sayings like, “Pray before… ; “Trust the Lord for… “; “Be happy today because… “.
Little things make a big difference. Try providing people with a reason to begin and continue the day with a positive attitude. Paper missives are only one way to be an encourager.

NOW FOR THE ‘REAL CARDS’
Funny bunnies, funny monies, funny whatever, causes mirth to be birthed, grins to be gained, smiles to be the style, giggles to cause wiggles, snickers like wickers from horse snorts to ball courts and wishing, like fishing, to splash us with joy. Phrases amaze us and wisdom invades us, when wrapped in a wit, it bursts in our brain. Poetic promises emote in our insideness, creating hope even in silly tones, don’t throw stones, strengthen your bones, with witty strong words that lift you within and outside your chin, with a new purpose to win.
It’s not hard to be a ‘card’ if you try to bring smiles while not taking yourself seriously. If you’re too serious, you bore and people shoot boars. So – “Smile a while and give your face a rest!” (besides it takes 6 more muscles to frown than to smile – don’t work so hard, relax and re-purpose.)
See, work IS fun. Enjoy a pun. Get it done and make the mon ($).
Get some cards and take part in spreading GOOD news. There is more than enough bad news flying around. Learn to duck or get hit with a puck, as in hockey if you don’t learn to duck.
