Hi friends. I intended to get this post up a little earlier, but we had a fun family day of ice skating. :) We were fortunate to have the day off from work and school in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday.
Thinking of Dr. King today, I decided to make a card using a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps new set, Casual Elegance. To me, this sentiment captures the essence of Dr. King's legacy. It is not enough to dream of a better tomorrow; we must commit ourselves to making those dreams a reality.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), Stampin' Up! (Island Indigo)
Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Two: Breeze)
Stamp: CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Casual Elegance)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Island Indigo)
Tools: My Favorite Things (polaroid die, star border die)
Accessories: Michaels (star gems), seam binding, thread
I have a few dreams of my own for the coming year. One of the more meaningful ones is to engage in more volunteer work, especially once my son starts all-day Kindergarten in the fall.
Another dream of mine? To see my patterned paper stash diminish. :) I tried to put a teensy dent in it with this card, but I have a long way to go.
What are your dreams? I'd love to hear. :)
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great start to your week!
