Inspirational Project Life Card

Hello Everyone,

I know I've been missing for a while, but unfortunately, sometimes life just gets in the way.  This year has brought with it many challenges and changes.  I've been involved in caring for my Father who has been in and out of the hospital since the beginning of the year.  There have been many doctor appointments and hospital visits that don't leave much time for anything else.  And, sadly, in February I had to put my beloved dog Jackson to sleep.  He was a wonderful, sweet, loving boy who is greatly missed. 

So I've not had too much time to myself lately.  However, every once in a while I've been able to squeeze in a minute or two in the craft room.  Most recently, I participated in a swap of Inspirational Project Life Cards.  We each picked a word and had to create a card.  My word was DREAM.  Here is what I came up with.

My card base is GP white cardstock.  For the word Dream, I used the Home Accents Cricut cartridge and cut it out of Bazzill Basics Textured paper.  I don't know if you can see, but the cloud has little raised dots.  The blue metallic layer as well as the stripped paper I used for the hat on the Moon was made by Recollections.  The stars I used were from Recollections too.The Moon was cut from the New Arrivals Cricut Cartridge.  Everything was inked with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  I typed out the quote on the computer.  I thought it was a great inspirational saying.  Unfortunately, I was not able to find a name of a person to credit the quote to.

That's it for today.  I hope you liked my card and were inspired by it.

I will be linking this project on the Pink Cricut site.
