...it's a dream of mine to post regularly and comment regularly.

According to this card, all I have to do is believe in that, and I will achieve it. ;)

This is for CAS-ual Fridays "In a Word' challenge and the Simon Says Stamp "New" challenge. I used a new-to-me paper company (Carta Bella - oh, I loveee the texture of their papers!), and my word is, obviously, dream. I think I need to dream a little bit more - going with the flow is good, but having a few dreams is a must - kinda like Rapunzel from the film Tangled (this Carta Bella paper totally reminds me of the lantern scene) ;)

I thought just the gold embossing was a little plain, so inspired by THIS pin, I added glitter.

Most of my siblings have gone back to their respective (temporary) homes, and I have about half a week before the chaos of school preparations and school begins. I'll try to keep believing in this "regular blogging" thing, and hopefully I will gain some sort of achievement in that area. ;)

Thanks for stopping in and God bless!
