Dream of Being



This is my card for January's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month.  Jeanette is the hostess this month and sent everyone this pensive image.  Jeanette noted that it looks as if she is reflecting on the year ahead and what she hopes to accomplish.  The two images Jeanette added are also very appropriate for the start of the New Year.  Jeanette also included some wonderful coffee patterned papers and some  embellishments for our card!

The Creative Card Chicks to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars today or in the next few days, you may see more of these wonderful creations!  Many of our members also post their card in our SCS thread--so you might find more there.  Carol is up for the February Challenge so please come back to see what image she has sent!



Here is the inside of my card.

What a wonderful card Barb - love how you have made it up from the kit, and there is a real punch to that internal sentiment panel.
