Just for Me

can you see the sun charm?
 That's right - just for me.  I made this card just for me.  This week's Daring Cardmakers challenge is to make a card for yourself. 
Just last week I was joking with my blog buddy Jane (anything but...Plain Jane - you must go visit her blog, you'll love it) about the woman in the Sunday Parade who visualized winning the lottery and won.  Well, I joke but I actually do believe in Creative Visualization, I just don't sit and visualize winning the lottery.  I do however sit and think about the things I want to happen and mentally work at making it happen.  So what's that got to do with this card?  Well, I'll try to explain without betting totally boring.  I am trying to buy a house with a pool.  The owners have accepted our offer but it's a short sale so we have to wait for their lenders to approve.  I have been told that short sales can take upwards of six months to happen so I am visualizing this happening much faster.  I've got my sights on getting an answer by Valentine's Day.  Hence the pool party card.  Yeah, I'm out there but hopefully I'll be out there with a pool in a short time
don't forget the inside
