Live your dream

“Live your dream”- what a nice sentiment and it sums up how I see my life.  4 beautiful children, a loving, supportive husband, living in our own home in the area we love (even if it is too small for us ;-) ) , wonderful friends oh….and not forgetting a room full of Stampin’ Up goodies. What more could a gal want?!  I get to have my children around me, we can get busy creating together or I can find some “me” time and it is wonderful to head out in the evenings and on weekends to run workshops with people who share my passion!  What a life! 

I used the stamp set “Live your dream” to create the following card.  It features the “Afternoon Tea” Designer series paper.  The general layout was inspired by a Christmas card created by my gorgeous upline, Claire.  I used a totally different stamp set, patterned papers,etc.  Of course, my card doesn’t look anywhere near as lovely as her card but I wanted to have a play with the general layout/ design.

  

Today I got to “Live my Dream” getting messy with the three biggest kids.  They each received a little woodwork kit from Santa. We made them in stages this afternoon.  First assembling them with glue and then waiting for the glue to dry, painting and then waiting for the paint to dry and then popping on the stickers and waiting for Daddy to come home!  Of course, the waiting in between wasn’t much fun and they were bursting with pride when Daddy came home to admire their creations (Thank goodness we got rid of the traces of paint on the outdoor setting before he got home!)

Here are their little creations!

  1. Love the sponging on your card Miriam. Looks great with that patterned paper. And lovely super colourful creations the kids put together. What a great day’s entertainment.

  2. Beautiful card Miriam, and I just love those photos of your kids with their creations. I see a scrapbook page there! BTW, I’ve given you a blog award. Be sure to stop by my blog to collect it :)
    Love Anita. xxx
