Colorful Dreaming


Do you Dream in Colour?  I have a good friend who has the most vivid dreams, she is able to recall them the next day down to the finest detail, they are always of the most strangest things and her recollection of them and trying to decipher what they meant always make us laugh.

Of late I have been dreaming a lot, however as I don't record them the minute I awaken I soon forget what they were about other than who may have been in them.  I am also finding that I am going to bed thinking of lots of creative things that I want to try, and idea pops into my head and then it elaborately evolves and so I am kept awake as my mind is full of color and craft.  So this morning on waking and after feeding the cats (who otherwise would have driven me crazy by their demands) and whilst Rod was still asleep I ventured into my craft room.  I tidied up a little and found myself staring at the Dream Big Itty Bitty Stamp from Unity which was sitting on my desk.  This stamp has the sentiment Dream Big and an image of three butterflies in flight.


Stamps:  Dream Big Itty Bitty by Unity Stamp Co, Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock/Papers:  Stampin' Up, Echo Park Summer Days Collection
Other:  SU Punches, Flowers, Bling and Tria Markers to add the slightest of colour to the Butterflies.


Seeing this immediately had me thinking of all that kept me awake the night before and my dreams which were all soon forgotten this morning,.  I created this card thinking about colorful dreams and letting them take flight to destinations unknown, whilst playing along with the current sketch challenge over at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge Blog and also with the current challenge theme of Butterfly Kisses at Stamptacular Sundays.  I have also entered this card into the current Paper Sundaes and Cute Card Thursdays Challenges also.

Challenges Entered
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - Challenge 12 Sketch
Stamptacular Sundays - Challenge #163 Butterfly Kisses
Paper Sundaes - Challenge #120 Things with Wings
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #217 A Touch of Sparkle.

Usually when I dream alot, it is when I am needing to make a decision about what direction to take in my life or path to go down.  I think I know where this is all heading but I am sure I have a few more dreams to have before I know for sure.  I will let you know.

Hi Danie! I really like the juxtaposition of the black and white butterflies against the uber colorful background!!! It is a very interesting switch, to have the butterflies NOT be the thing that is colorful! Thank you for playing with us at CCCC.
