Hello again Readers,

For today I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch with a card that I have always wanted to make but didn't think I had the materials to make it, that my friends, is a dreamcatcher. Going through my stash, I discovered I had plenty of supplies!! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I didn't have dreamcatcher stamp, so I looked at my medallion collection of stamps and found
this oldie but goodie to use instead. I think it is a wonderful substitute.
The color and style of the designer paper fits the mood for the dreamcatcher.
I thought a simple sentiment and some string would be a nice touch with the sketch.
This photo shows the stitched detail of the dreamcatcher
as well as the colorful feathers.

Challenges Entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS #189

As you may know from my previous posts, we just returned from a Labor Day camping trip to Northern Michigan. To remember the trip I had the kids pick out one souvenir. My daughter and son both picked dreamcatchers. Very interesting and heartwarming because the entire way back to camp they were discussing what kind of dreams they were going to catch. And as they talked, I wondered where these dreams will take them?

Just a note: My daughter got her instrument and was very happy to start practicing with it. I had an entire two hours to spare!! More than enough time to get on it! My daughter even called me to tell me not to forget.. Good grief!! These not so great moments I call 'Mom of the Year' moments. Not my most shining moment.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed your visit and am looking forward to hearing what you have to say. Do you have a 'Mom of the Year' moment to share? I will be back later today for another challenge prompt from PINspirational. So until then take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
