Never Overshadow Your Dreams


Another FWF (and another late post!)  So, I'll be quick and to the point! 

I created this card for my daughter, who graduated this year (if you remember me bragging back in June).  I'm going to see her soon and I wanted to make sure that I have a little $omething for her...it'll be stashed in this card!  The sentiment is Unity, from the April 2012 KOM

The buttons are 3 Girl Jam Vintage Buttons.  I think they "completed" this card pretty nicely, don't you?

NOW
I really need to go and explore all the other blogs!

I need to go check out all the FWF creations on the Unity Blog
AND
I want to go check out the new 3 Girl Jam Challenge Blog (see details below in my OTHER post today)

I like how you used the buttons. I never think to thread them, but it looks so much more finished that way!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
