Challenge #174 - Need a Lift?

Rosemary here and for our fortnight's challenge we would like you to create something to encourage, inspire, just make someone (even yourself) feel better.
Because everybody could use a LIFT!
For this challenge I made art journal pages to help me through some of the tough times, to help me as I am working through a period of change.  To help me appreciate my uniqueness and to be more forgiving.  Art journals are loads of fun when you allow yourself to just play using color and paint and textures to cut loose and have fun.  Splashing paint around, stamping, coloring, and so on. 
It has lifted my spirits!

Now let's see what the talented Poobahs have created for this challenge, shall we?

 I have a friend online who is having a hard time right now, so I made this for her.
I hope she likes it!
Deena here:  I am trying to use up some of my kits and abundant supplies so I made this card from one of them...I even got to start in on some of my many unused washi tapes that I love so much and can't usually bring myself to use...

Chat Noir here.... and I was inspired by Rosemary's beautiful bright colours and so made this card.  I found a lovely collection of papers I forgot I had bought (of course), and these are two, along with some random flowers I pressed out with the cuttlebug and a handy TE die.  The card is destined for a friend who definitely needs a lift this week.

You have until the end of Saturday 25 January  to join in with your fabulous creation.

This project gave me a "lift" so maybe it will for some others. Thanks for the challenge.
