Dreaming Of The Crafty Paper Goddess!

I have always fancied myself becoming a goddess of sorts even if it is only in my own lunchbox.  A domestic goddess was in my sights for a second but I do tend to burn water and my house looks like Beirut circa 1975, so that was kind of out of the question from the get go.  So, I am really only left to take an alternate route in my flight of fancy and be content in daydreaming about being a crafty paper goddess.  Needless to say I was tickled pink, well more a light pink, bright pink and chartreuse actually, when I saw the latest CR84FN challenge.  Afterall, if I were to actualize my crafty paper goddess woolgathering, I think I'd have to have a calling card, as any self respecting crafty paper goddess would and it has to be the compulsary pink and green.  Absolutely!  So, consider my card entry for the the latest CR84FN Color Challenge my prototype. Before you get worried that I am having delusions of granduer just know, I am only joshing and having fun delighting in the joys of good old fashioned wishful imaginings.  Ahhh...to dream!

You are really the expert at layering such interesting combinations of embellishments on your cards Jen. I love all the color patterned papers and the doilies. They paired very nicely with that simply little chair. Great job.

Jen, this is lovely. I love the layered doilies,
the little couch and brad cushion, your websters paper peaking out and your Tim Holtz gate; the whole is just genious. I love your sense of humour; very Australian. One of my best friends lives in Tazmania, and has a wicked sense of humour. I just read a quote:
Dreams believed are dreams realized. and god knows how you have time to craft with 7 kids !!
Cheers. G. tks for your lovely comment on my "Spring Breeze" card...
