Present...Not Perfect Midway

This month over at Path of Positivity we are pondering the idea of Present, Not Perfect.  As I said at the beginning of the month, I have been pondering this idea for a while and have had a difficult time putting this into practice!  I am a prime example of waiting for the "right" time.  

I will say, I have been working on this and although the timing was not perfect we planned a horse-camping weekend.  I had committed to it, but then we had rain/flooding and every place was closed!  Ok, I can't take responsibility for backing out this time.  I was bound to make something happen; so, my riding buddy came over and we rode around my lot and cooked burgers on the grill.  

My horse was NOT perfect, but it didn't matter!  We still had a great time and got some work done in the arena with another horse/rider present.  We are one step closer to a better trail experience in the future.

I adore this image from Pickled Potpourri!  I sometimes feel like this little girl looking out the window waiting and wishing for the perfect time.

About my Card
I started by sizing all the pieces (widow/shutters, girl front, girl back) and sizing the card front and base in Cricut Design Space.  I used the weld feature for the girl front and shutters so they would be one piece.  I used print and cut for the pieces and imported digital paper for the wallpaper.  I flattened text on the pieces as well.  

I colored this little dreamer with Copic markers and adhered the pieces.
