dreams du jour

Good morning friends! I'm so glad it is Friday! I'm not sure why though as on the weekends nothing really changes much.

I bought this set, Dreams Du Jour when the sneak peek sets came out for us SU! demos so I've had it for sometime now but I haven't actually used it. I love what this says...We Grow Great By Dreams. Yes, but only if you take that first step to take it beyond a dream. I digress. I think I'm going to start adding the card deets at the bottom of my post so if you want to see what I used you can check down there. To color the flowers and leaves though I just used my blender pen and blended the Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss from the images in the the white area's. That is such a simple thing to do that I haven't done in so long...I was happy I remembered I could do it! LOL!

The layout is from Julee's Mojo Monday. It was hard not putting something in the blank area on the left of the card but with that patterned paper there really is no way...so...I left it as is. I used my Nestabilities to makes the circles and scalloped circle and then each layer is popped up on pop dots. I did add a little sparkle with my stardust pen to the flowers. I tied the ribbon perfectly thanks to the first video on THIS page.

You know what I'm going to do with this card? I'm going to enter it into the cards/scrapbook portion of our local fair! Yep! I've never done this before but this year...I'm trying! I may also enter in a photo I've taken but I'm not sure of the requirements for that.

***Edited to add that Susanna linked to my card for her "Creations and Inspirations from around the Blogosphere" today! Woohoo! HERE is a link to it! Just scroll down and you'll see my blog name and the post name!***

Today, on the 3 Little DReaMs Yahoo group (what you aren't a part of it?...well, go to my left side bar and click on the purple button to become a part of it!) we will start having challenges! Woohoo! Each month a member of the fabulous design team will put together challenges that will be released on Friday's for you to participate in. The first challenge is embossing...heat or dry. There will be a folder on the group for you to upload to or you can upload to SCS with the keyword 3LDAUG. Now...each time you participate and upload you challenge project you will get a chance to win a fun prize (to be designated by the fabulous Katie) at the end of the month! Neato huh? Yes, you can participate if you don't get the kits but I would highly encourage you to check out the 3 Little DReaMs club (she features Bella and Sweet n Sassy kits!) as Katie does an excellent job putting together her fun kits! Any questions? Just e-mail me (mom2kjs(at)yahoo(dot)com) or leave me a comment here! Oh, I just remembered September Kits go on sale TODAY! Run, do not walk (okay navigate!) over to the store and order yours!

I hope everyone has a super Friday! See ya tomorrow!

Ooo, love this! So pretty! I can't wait until I can order this paper!

I have tried and tried to tie a bow with that video and I think I'm an idiot, because I can't get it to work! LOL!

Sarah {SCS: Sairabee} said...

This is just PERFECT! I love it. Nice picture too! :) Was that in this last pre-order? Dang. I don't even remember it. You should send this into SU though. They'd probably use it in something. Yeah, it's *that* good. Honestly!
