I've made these for a swap, I got a bunch of pictures from the wondrous google, I tried to go with vintage type images, loaded them all into MS word, printed out a page, glued on some patterened card to the back and chopped them to size, I didnt try and keep them all the same size, just similar borders around the images. Under each image I wrote a task, like: have a sweet treat, :wear something you think is sexy; dress up in your favourite  outfit, have a long hot bath etc etc. I made a little pouch to hold them in. The instructions are simple, when are a little down, then you have to pick one card and commit to doing the action within the next 48 hours.

I am happy with how they turned out (the instructions are handwritten BTW, I gave up swearing at MS word in the end and reached for my trusty sharpie)

Oh wow, this is such a fantastic idea!

These would make such a wonderful gift. I might make some for my Mum for mothers day.

I love the pictures you have chosen, they are full of character.

These are so darling.
Do you have bigger pictures? I'd love to see what the rest of them say.  Smiley

unfortunately I dont have bigger pictures, I made these for a swap and they are on their merry way to the recipient, Basically I went with what the pictures suggested,
 like spending time on the phone with a friend,
 take a long hot bubble bath,
eat a treat,
 Invent (and drink!) a cocktail or smoothie.
Give someone a hug.
Find a cat or dog to talk with for a while.
Look into the mirror and say nice things to yourself for 10 minutes,
 take a nap,
start a gratitude journal.
Wear something that you think is sexy

etc
