Let Your Dreams Take Flight ...

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters and I'm
happy to say I am your hostess for today!

Our theme today is:  MONOCHROMATIC

Of course, that means using various shades of one color + neutrals.
I was in a 'blue' mood today so that's the color I went with.

Plus I just purchased this new DCWV 12x12 paper pack and it had a sheet of 'blue barn siding' that just called out to me! LOL. 

Have you ever seen a blue barn?  They are really cool looking!

I thought that would work perfectly with my kites! The way the wind has been around here lately I don't think a kite would survive!

Been getting some pretty hefty gusts!!

I hope you'll come join in the fun at The Sisterhood of Crafter's Monochromatic Challenge!

My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous projects to inspire you.  Please be sure to check them out and leave some love!  We all enjoy hearing what other crafters think of our designs!

What a cute card! Love the kite die cuts! The blue barns are quite beautiful and I'd not mind seeing one of those in these parts. Most of ours are red. The wind has been terribly gusty here as well. All the Dogwood and apple blossoms are off the trees.

Perfect choice of card for this time of year...but I have to agree, right now kites would have to made of steel to survive these winds we have your choice of colors and barn siding...hey, I want a blue barn...want to come and help me paint ours...LOL!!!

This is such a pretty card...with a simple design and lovely die-cutting, we do like to see areas of white space on submissions to our CAS challenges.
Thanks so much I really hope you join us again!
