Dream Big

Hi there!  Thanks so much for all your warm anniversary wishes yesterday!  Mark and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner (fondue at the Melting Pot) and I even squeezed in a little time to stamp just for fun!  Hooray!  Today's card uses Amy's sketch for this week's Viva la Verve! challenge.  Someone who plays along with all 4 sketches this month will win the entire January release!!!


So, as I mentioned, I had a little free time just to stamp yesterday with no guilt steering me any one direction.  When I went to pick out a stamp set, Dream Big just popped out at me.  I was listening to a podcast the other day and the pastor said that a negative person can't believe that the best could happen, so they always expect the worst.  Now, I wouldn't consider myself a negative person, but I think we all get disheartened every once in a while, start listening to all the negativity in the world, and stop expecting the best.  But I do have big dreams, hopes and plans for myself, my business and my friends and it costs me nothing to believe the best will happen in any situation, to believe the best in a person or even to believe the best of myself.  So for any of you who feel downtrodden, disheartened or hopeless this morning, this card is for you!  DREAM BIG and expect the best!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope your day exceeds your wildest expectations!!!

  5. Julee- this post made my day. I know I get disheartened sometimes without really realizing it. And you are right, it cost nothing to hope for the best or dream big. Thanks! The card is sweet and I love the little ribbon/ties on the sides.
    Merry Christmas!
