"I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

I am in a closed swap on SCS with a bunch of wonderfully talented ladies. Each month the hostess gives us a theme to create a card with. This month the theme was to make a card that was inspirational. Another part of the theme was to: "Create a card that reflects YOU…your dreams, aspirations, and/or accomplishments. Include your favorite colors, embellishments, images and sentiments."

I kind of forgot the "inspirational" part but I did make a card that reflects something about me. Something that I like. So, I could have made a card about reading, or baking, or stamping and scrapping but I wanted something a little different. So here is my card:

So what does this card say about me? It says, I like chick-flicks. And I like chick-flicks with happy endings. I used Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White CS. My DP is from pebblesinc.com. The collection is called "Ever After." My sentiment is from a set from MFT, along with the die I used with the sentiment. The carriage stamp is a $1 stamp from Michael's. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip from SU! and the crown brad is from Eyelet Outlet.

Thanks for stopping by.
