Encouragement Dreams Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hi to all of Blogland readers.  I hope all of you are doing well.  It is hot here again in Southern CA; but that is to be expected.  I hope it is cooler where you are; and that you are enjoying whatever season it is for you.  

I am excited to announce another New Release for DS4J.  I created a card with one of the new Digis - Cleo's Walk.  Isn't she precious!  I fell in love when I saw this one.  I just need more hours in the week to create with all of these fabulous digi stamps.  I have wanted to try pink or purple hair for a while; so I decided to try it on her.  It isn't too bad; but probably could have been a little brighter.  I didn't want to make it brighter than the top of the dress.  LOL!

I decided to use a sketch this time from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I realized lately that I can create easier with a sketch and I liked this one.  See sketch below.  

I am entering this card in the Path of Positivity Challenge - Dreams.  I love this positive, upbeat challenge.  The owner, Lisa, and her DT are fabulous!  Be sure to check it out.  Dreams - I believe anyone can have their dreams come true.  This card makes me think of someone reaching for her dreams.  It reminds me of little girls dressing up in wedding gowns or fancy dresses; and imagining themselves as they would like to be someday.  It is great to work towards your dreams; but I also wanted to remind the person I send this to; that they should always be their own kind of wonderful; no matter what their dreams.  To me; being true to ourselves is the most important part of dreaming.  Don't become someone else; just because another person wants you to be different. You are perfect exactly as you are.  So dream; envision and become the person you want to be!
