great dreams

Hello and happy Tuesday to all who are visiting the charmed life blog today. I woke up to snow today. Not much just a dusting, but it was cold and blustery here in the "Burgh.

Our remodeling is continuing. We had to order some special size doors to replace the ones in our bedroom and hall. Well, they came in with the wrong finish on them. We will have to wait another 2 weeks to get those.

No problem with me the other stuff we are getting done is taking shape.

We are moving rooms around downstairs. So there is painting and refinishing one of the hardwood floors. The contractor is doing such an excellent job. The Lord has sent us a man that knows what he is doing and does it skillfully. What a blessing!!

Even though he was here working today, I managed to finish a card that I started yesterday.

My card was for the mojo monday sketch from the verve site.
This week we could do the sketch either as a round or a square card.
The layout was an easy one to work with. So thank you Teresa Kline for providing it.

I ended up doing the standard 4.25 x 5.5 but other than that I kept true to the sketch.

I wanted to make a card for a young woman who has a dream that is starting to take shape for her. She is so excited in the fall of this year to be opening her own pre-school.

I had the perfect stamp to use. It has not seen ink and I have had it for over a year.
It's the "dreams du jour" set from stampin-up.

I found this designer paper in my stash and decided to use it on this card. My felt flower is from hero arts and I added some black rhinestones. That's my card!!

It looks like the sun has gone down in charmed life land, and it is now time to put a wrap on another day.
See you next time. Come back and visit often and feel free to leave me a comment, a prayer request or a blessing.
