Give Yourself an A+ Today

Happy Thursday and welcome to the Fresh Brewed Blog. My card today is for our weekly challenge, a school themed project with visible ABC-123. The digital image I used from Fresh Brewed Designs is called A+ Bug. My designer papers gave me a helping hand here because the letters and numbers are all there!! And that sentiment could not be more perfect. For more details on this card, please visit my blog, The Stamper's Touch. With soooooo much crazy going on's in my house this week, I don't feel overly wonderful about my card. But then the more I looked beyond the surface and to the message the sentiment was giving, I finally got it. We are always so hard on ourselves, we are our worse critics, sometimes setting the bar so high we are bound for failure. Funny how two simple words, GREAT JOB, is that pat on the back, instant gratification, that warm and fuzzy that we all need! So I challenge you today, say "great job" to yourself for a job well done, for touching someone's life with a smile, for getting that A+ or that promotion, or just for being you. Remember, you are special and you are loved.

Now that was some deep ramblings for an early Thursday morning. And it's the 1st of September...hard to believe. Take a look around our blog, we've got lots going on this month and you won't want to miss a bit of it.


  1. Can I tell you that your message is one that needs to be read and heard. I know it is EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED Today!!! I feel like I try and try and try at so many things and fail. But in reality, if I step back and look at it from a different angle, I see progress. God spoke to my heart through your post. Thank you for sharing this Linda. I love you muchly!!!

    And your card is SOOO CUTE! Before I read your post I looked at it and smiled. It was one of those 'oh that is perfectly sweet' smiles. LOVE the papers and the black border around the image. Really GREAT JOB!!!


  2. what a super card and super sentiment!!! You are so right---we all deserve to tell ourselves this once in a while! Thanks for the reminder!

  3. So cute.
    Have a wonderful September!
