Dream Big

dreambigcolour

Good morning!  Yes, it’s Monday, but there’s no staff meeting and this will be a fun week :)  The dh gets home late tonight which means “date night” is coming up soon and Wednesday I meet with an interior designer to help plan the “fun” parts of the new house :) Today’s card uses the colours from the new CR84FN challenge.  I don’t usually use just blue and yellow, but add kraft and how can I resist?  This card went through many transformations before ending up like the one you see here.  The mojo was fighting me this weekend! Now that we are heading into Graduation Season, I thought I’d make a few inspiring cards.  I just love this sentiment from Verve’s Dream Big set.  The perfect way to say  “congrats to the grad.”  I hope today finds you well and happy.  Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Dream big is the perfect sentiment for graduation! I love the yellow and blue together...I don't use yellow too often, but this definitely inspires me!

Love your take on this colour combo. So soft and pretty! I always admire how you stamp a pretty image underneath the sentiment. Such a nice effect! Have a great day!

Love this colour combo and can't wait to play along. Sentiment is perfect for a grad - love it :) No sign of fighting mojo here - must have been a KO on your part LOL. Enjoy your day with no staff meeting and having Tony home :)
