My Dream

 Hello, my friends. Happy Friday. I hope the weather isn't too bad where you are. Here in H Town, we have cold, but not windy, so it's not too bad. At least the temps are below freezing. The sun is shining, but that won't be for long. I expect we will be getting some wet weather soon. I always felt like February was the gloomy, rainy month, but in 2022, January is sure vying for top spot.

I've had some time to work on a few cards in between breaks from my study group. Today I'm sharing one for the SCS Challenge Your Stash group. The idea is that we are to make a card using only items from our stash and not buy anything new for it. We have a hostess each month who chooses a theme for us to follow. It's always fun to see what everyone comes up with. This month our hostess was Jenn (Jennifrann) and she chose the theme "I Have a Dream." This wasn't too hard for me because I've had a dream for a number of years that I started really working toward back in 2017. The dream was to get my Bachelor's Degree. I'm happy to say that I am half way there having achieved my Applied Associate's Degree back in July 2021. I'll be going back to school starting in April to work on the second part of my degree program to finally get my Bachelor's Degree. Here is the card that I made for this. I guess in two and a half years I could send it to myself. 

Materials Used:

  • Image - Whiff of Joy - Graduation Willow
  • Sentiment - Stampendous - Cap & Gown Day
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Midnight Muse; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye - Izzy Collection
  • Accessories - Stampin Up Label Punch
  • Copic Markers - B24, B26; E000, E00, E02, E06; E40, E41; R08; Y11, Y15, Y18, Y19, Y26
 That's all for today. I hope to get some more crafty time in my craft room, but I also have to work on my research report. Wishing you a fabulous weekend.
