Dreamy Thanks

Trying to find some mojo in between the running around.  Also trying to be more positive as I realize that I have been on a bit of a negative trend lately, just letting everything get me down instead of looking for solutions.

So just a quick card using a Penny Black slap stick stamp called "Dreamy" together with my Distress Markers.


 A circle and a scallop Nestabilitie created the mats.  I did run a text impression plate from PTI over the white mat to give it some texture, added a bit of twine, seam binding, a tag from PTI, some Golden Glitz ink to edge the circle mat and that was it.  The final piece was adhering it all to some lovely Hero Arts designer cardstock.

I need to go and make some plans for today other than just going to check on the house.  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  Hugs to all!

Love this wispy little flower and the subtleness of the melon with the neutrals. Very pretty :)

Sometimes, when life gets challenging, it can be so difficult to find the positive side, but I'm glad to hear you're going to try, Bren. I think of you so often - try to keep that optimistic attitude, and don't forget to find a little bit of joy each day!

I love your card today - beautiful design - the ribbon treatment with the sweet sentiment tag is so pretty! Sending you lots of hugs!

a very pretty card Brenda.... Things will continue to improve once you are all settled into the house... such a big move is bound to be very unsettling. Sending happy thoughts your way.
