Unlock the Imagination

Hello my treasured friends!

Just a few updates tonight while I'm on the computer doing crafty related things! Just finished my projet for Tuesday's Celebrate the Occasion Challenge so you'll all have to come and join us for the fun! I'm in the process of editing my holiday haul for you guys, but I need to figure out how to make the music not as loud..that's what the boyfriend is for! Haha! Hopefully it will be done and uploaded by tomorrow! I'm still currently in the process of organizing everything cuz I keep adding to my ever so large craft collection...must stop...but will I ever? Is it even possible to stop? ;) I did however get around to finishing a few projects, so I'll post one tonight!

It's a tradition for my friend that whenever anyone turns 21, their parents give them a key to 'unlock their future paths.' I had never heard of this before and I was extremely intrigued! Her birthday has gone and past now, and it wasn't until after her birthday that I found key items - a beautiful key keychain and key cardstock that screamed her name. So I created this card just for her to accompany the keychain.

The card base is 5.25 x 4.5. Isn't that patterned paper stunning? It's from the DCWV Tradewinds Stack - a must-have for travelers!

Here's the inside of the card:

I just love how the card came together - it was super quick and simple (what I was going for) AND beautiful!!

And there you have it! We all need inspirational cards from time-to-time! :)

Now it's time for bed! Good night and sweet crafty dreams to you all!

Until next time's treasures,
