Fears, Dreams, Wishes

Fears & Dreams

Wishes Are The Magic
This is a card and tag I made at the Crop For Cancer event I attended in March. The lovely lady is from my favourite site, The Graphics Fairy. Lots of free vintage graphics. Check it out if you haven't already. The left side was blank, which was perfect for a stamp. I just bought this stamp and I thought it went perfect, as it looks like she is deciding whether or not to go if her dreams and fears were in the same place. Great sentiment! It's a Tim Holtz stamp. The background paper is from Basic Grey, the Curio collection (Needle Lace). Crochet lace from Dollar Store, buttons and pearls added with photo corners.

The tag has a watercolour background, using Distress Inks Victorian Velvet, Wild Honey, Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade. Same colours used on the torn tag with TH sentiment, which is from the Good Thoughts collection. Checkerboard stamp is TH from the Ultimate Grunge collection. Key from Dollar Store, butterfly stamped, coloured, then popped with foam square.

Since we're talking about dreams, here's a video from 1977 of Fleetwood Mac singing their classic song, "Dreams". I was fortunate to see them in concert in 1977 in Toronto. Have a listen and sing along. You know you want to....

The weekend is almost here! Have a good one! For those of you in the US, have a great long weekend! TFL!

They are both lovely.... I adore how the image fits so well with the wording on the card... and the tag is (once again, as usual) stunning!
