A New Challenge

BWS tips button
I've joined the Fall Fearless and Fly art cleanse at Artists in Blogland.   I chose the Challenge prompt:  Abraham Lincoln Quote 
The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time
from this challenge's co-hosts, Jessica and Carolyn.

I decided to use the calendar as my theme for the quote.  I found in my stash a really old piece of Flair calendar paper.  I added some Tim Holtz stickers.  I wanted the days to look as though they were cascading down, one day at a time.  I chose the woman in a Hampton Arts rubber stamp to symbolize receiving her future one day at a time.  A Stampabilities lace border stamp and a number stencil were used on the background with Stampin' Up Crumb Cake ink writer.   The woman and my handwritten quote were done with Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip ink writer.

I'm posting this under the wire as I head out the door to Stampin' Up card club.  So I'll be visiting the other submissions when I get back to my computer.   This is a slightly different journaling style, but this is the outcome of how the quote spoke to me.
