Reach for the stars!

Hi there!

My South-African readers will be familiar with the sentiment I used on this card!

The music show hosted by David Gresham on Springbok Radio... many years ago... he always ended the show with this words... "keep your feet on the ground and reach for the stars!"

I believe it is words based on a saying of Theodore Rooseveldt - “Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground”


I made another masculine card, suitable for a few occasions.
The beautiful digi paper is from the pixelscrapper
