Hiya beautiful!! I hope you are having the most fantastic day sweet friend. You may have seen in our newsletter earlier this week that we are launching a 30-day challenge! Starting July 1st, 2017 we are challenging YOU to send one card or letter a day for 30 days! Let’s spread the love! Give some JOY – share the cheer! What do you say?


I have to admit, part of me came up with this challenge as a wonderful excuse to use my new cards from my card line with DaySpring that just released! You can check them out via the video below:



Okay fun right!!?!? Here are all the details:

Who: Anyone can join along! Jump in and share your journey! Who should you send your cards to? Make sure to follow us on Instagram and we will be sharing our process along the way!

What: This is a 30-day challenge which means every day for 30 days you send a card or letter to your friend, family member, neighbor etc! Who is Jesus laying on your heart today? Take it one day at a time, you don’t have to have it all planned out before hand :)

When: Starting July 1st 2017 and going through the following 30 days!

Where: You can follow our journey on Instagram, we will also be sharing here on the blog from time to time as well as in our newsletter, but for daily updates make sure to check Instagram!  We will also be hosting a challenge on our Facebook, so check in there as well!

Why: Because Jesus tells us to lift up those around us! Because making people smile is fun! Because who doesn’t like sending happy mail! Because of cute cards! Because sharing your heart and prayers with those around you is always a good idea!


What do you say? Are you in? Share the graphic at the top of this post on your social media account and spread the exciting news!! Let us know YOU ARE IN so we can be following along! Let’s hold each other accountable, what do you say?


Supplies: Many people have been asking what you need to participate! Great question!!!

The only required items are some envelopes, paper or cards and stamps for mailing. 

The following supply list includes affiliate links.

We make a small percentage of each sale made through these links at no extra charge to you!


Some additional items I have gathered for this challenge include the following:

some fun and encouraging cards


Illustrated Faith - Well with My Soul - Washi Tape

washi tape (perfect for sealing those envelopes!)

One more thing I did purchase to prepare for a month of happy mail were these labels. I plan on decorating my envelopes and I thought this would be easy for placing on top of my designs instead of needing to worry about the address as I work :)


Other than that, let’s use what we have on hand!

Don’t overcomplicate it!

Keep it simple, and achievable!!!

I can’t wait!!! I do hope you will join us!!!

    I’m pre-addressing and pre stamping my envelopes. I LOVE being an encouragement to others BUT I’m TERRIBLE at sending people mail. So I’m trying to think of ways that will help keep me going. I also think it will make me accountable to do it! I’m excited for this challenge. Encouraging others is definitely one of my gifts and Happy mail is such a fun way to do it. Blessings!

    Thank you for this challenge – I love sending and receiving mail but since children I haven’t sent as much as I used to! When we walk to the mailbox my children are always hoping for mail, but rarely receive it especially with most of our family in the same town as us. This challenge gave me the idea to send them mail, too! Even though we live in the same home, I can brighten their day but sending them a happy note! :)

  5. This sounds like fun, I made it just in time. Yay!
