GUI for an already made program through Qt?

Hi, I'm new to Qt, like just started a day ago, and I was told that Qt is really good for making GUI's. Anyway... I was wondering if it is possible to make a GUI through Qt for a program that I already made before that works with command prompt. So basically I made a program that would notify you if there was an update on a website. So how it begins is it would ask you to type an URL for a website and then use the website you typed in and start checking if it changed every 2 minutes. What I'm wondering is, is there a simple way for me to make like a Dialog box like the ones you see on all the commercial programs that comes up and you can type in the website in a slot and then another dialog box comes up showing an archive of basically all previous occurrences of updates. Is this possible to do by using Qt without changing up the code I have already much? Any advice is really appreciated thank you! (Note: the program I wrote is in C++)

This is very easy in Qt and should allow you to keep a lot of your existing code. The main code difference (obviously) is the user interface which will have to be re-written to work with Qt, but this is trivial given your description.
