Dream A little Dream

Dream a little dream 2012

I have a card to share with you an it is for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week our twist is to have a FLOWER AND SOME RHINESTONES. I do have to tell I got all done with my card and went to post it and for some reason I thought it was pearls so I had to go and add some rhinestones, so not a problem add some to the corners but you know how much I like the pearl pen and that color is sunny yellow. This card worked out so wonderful for me my fantastic daughter Kirsten (you know I do not have any daughters) I like to call my daughter in laws my daughters let me tell you why, when me and my hubby got married some 44 years ago ( it will be 45 in Oct) we wanted all girls but guess what we do not always get what we want, do we? So all my life I have had brothers no sisters (what a bummer) and them I did not get any daughters. My middle son Kurt gets married 11 years ago and I love my daughter Jessica so much and they give me a GRANDDAUGHTER Emma who will be 7 years the end of this month, see we do have some female gems in this family. I can not forget to tell you about Aiden will be 11 years in January, he is their (our) oldest and ok I will not get started about him but I do have to say he is an awesome grandson ( plays piano, violin). OK what was I talking about, oh yes Kirsten and this card, she is my NEW daughter and I’m so happy her and my oldest son David got married in June and she came with a DAUGHTER and that is even more exciting and there is even more in August Haleigh (that is her name) was adopted by my son, so now I was 2 granddaughters is this not getting better. So now I have 2 daughter and 2 granddaughter but i9t does not end their. My youngest son Robert and his girlfriend came over the other day and they had some news for us. Guess what? We are going to have a wedding… Is this not fantastic, I thought this time in my life would never happen. You might ask what time am I talking about, let me tell you… I never thought I would have all three of my boys married…. See this is what happens when my mind is thinking of all kinds of things. OK card Kirsten, her birthday is coming and she loves sunflowers so I made this card for her.

Now that I put you to sleep.. My stamps are from stampabilities called Ray of Sunshine and the sentiment is called A little dream. Stamped the with Memento tuxedo black ink on Crygoen paper. Sponged around the sentiment with distress ink color scattered straw.

You can see the Beedz glass embellishment beads from Suzy Weinberg’s and used glossy accents to hold them on. The sunflowers I had in my stash. The leaves I made with the punch a bunch called chestnut leaf.

dream a little dream flowersI made a double bow and used my bow easy.

Patricia - I just loved reading your blog today and I thought it is a pity we live so very far apart I would just love to meet you and hear all of this face to face - but as you say - we don't always get what we want. Anyway - this is another of your awesome cards - fantastic.
