Sweet Dreams

Hello and Happy Sunday to you – thanks for joining me today.

Let’s talk sleep! Do you sleep enough? Do you sleep well? Ha ha ha ok….getting to the point: 😀

I’ve always loved the old legend of the Dream Catcher – that if hung in a window in the bedroom, it would sort the good dreams from the bad and only let the good dreams through.

Not that I’ve been having nightmares, I just thought it was time for such a pretty ornament in our bedroom window, so I jump to the chance of making one.

I used the Indian Dream Catcher and cut the ornament piece 8 times, stacked and glued them together for a stronger ornament.

Then I altered the feather piece slightly to make room for a hole for the raffia to go through, so I could tie them onto the ornament.

Finally I added some pearls and gems as decoration and voila – done in no time!

I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Woodgrain patterned AC Cardstock in Chestnut and patterned paper from DCWV “Mercury Glass Paper” and “Wood, Marble and Brass” from Recollections.

Now no bad dreams are to be dreamt and I look forward to a nice long nap….LOL 😀

Thanks for visiting today.

Come Rain or Come Shine……

…..from the Soundtrack of the Danish Summer. It has pretty much been the crappiest summer in history, but as I see it, not everything has been bad. The temperature has been very pleasant with a minimum of hot humid days and the sun has been know to shine on occasion 😀

This weather inspired me to make this Birthday card to a girlfriend of mine whose Birthday is here in August. It could easily have been made for a spring Birthday but that’s just my point – we have practically no seasons anymore. It’s either Spring or Fall – no more Summer or Winter.

The cute card is designed by Cyndy Gustashaw and is part of her Box Cards 2 Kit.

I used AC Cardstock in Lipgloss, Cricket, Robin’s Egg, Melon, Daffodil, Chestnut, Black and Bayou along with patterned paper from Doodlebug Design – Spring Time and Wood Grain patterned paper also from AC.

I inked all the edges with inkpads from Prima and used a white Silhouette Sketch Pen to write the sentiment (it says Congratulations in Danish) on the sign post.

Thanks for stopping by – hope you love the card as much as I do 🙂
