Follow your dreams card made using the New England Shore cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card that you could make for many occasions. In fact, I was looking high and low through my stamp collection for a stamp that said something about 'lighting up my life' no luck though. I need to hunt for a stamp that says that though. However, follow your dreams is also something that works great with this image!

I used the New England Shore CCR cartridge for this one. I am pretty sure I will go to this one again because it's so so cute!

Here is the CCR file:
Here is the Gypsy file:
The paper is from Authentique.
The rhinestone is from Close To My Heart.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I love your card. The colors are beautiful.
Lighthouses always bring back special memories of my best friend we lost in 1985. Her husband was a lighthouse keeper for a while in the Coast Guard and we'd go stay with them. Thanks for the memory boost.

Wow! I love the simplicity of the kraft background. All the colors and patterned layers transformed this cut into a real feature. By the way, Linda at, does a great tutorial on creating rub-on transfers with your printer. Next time you can't find that perfect sentiment, give this a try!
