It's Good to Dream


Hello Everyone!

I didn't get a chance to post yesterday. I didn't really do a lot of crafting, I actually started this card Thursday night and then yesterday I just did bits and pieces of it through the day and then finally got it done just a few moments ago. It was all really simple, except for the stitching. All of those little x's took FOREVER to do!!!
This card fits a whole bunch of challenges too. Wow, ever since I found out about websites like the Daily Dare and Feline Playful, I have turned into a bonafide Challenge Chaser. I love it!!
The hubs is on his way out of town either today or tomorrow, so you know what that means: at least one late night of crafting this weekend. Whoo Hoo!! I'm so glad Monday is a holiday. Enjoy your weekend and take some time to do something for yourself this weekend. See ya soon!!

Challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch

Paper Play: Stitches

Play Date Cafe: Color Challenge. I used Scarlett Jewel (PTI) Pumpkin Pie, Kraft, Crushed Curry (SU!) and a Green from my scrap folder.

Stampin Bee's: Use a Charm

Your Next Stamp: Anything goes.

Meljens Designs: Use Stripes. This one was the most difficult for me to do. I have NOTHING that has stripes on it that went with the colors of my card, so I just decided to create some!

Wild Flower Patch: Use Fall Colors

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you did all that cross stitch on your paper. If I had done that, it wouldn't have been so straight! Your image is darling and I love your bright fall colors. Super cute card! Thanks for joining us!
