This year is flying by. I did fewer cards and posting last year than all the years I have been doing a blog. Hope things are going to improve. Starting with the posting of these "Valentines" for my sweet little girls and little man........Hope you enjoy and I appreciate all my followers.
I saw this card in the "Cricut Cards" magazine that I won and just loved it. I love the hot air balloon. This was a great idea made from 3 different Cricut cartridges. The book did not have a cartridge listed for the clouds. I used "Straight From The Nest" for the balloon which on the cartridge is a "Birdcage". The bottom of the balloon is from the same cartridge and is a "Flowerpot". Punch holes in both and used Embroidery thread in green. Put the entire thing on pop dots and this is what I got. I used another cut for the dolly from "Easter Seasonal". Clouds from "April Showers" with different blue papers and layered them. Background paper from a stack from "Big Lots" in a pattern blue. This card is an odd size 5 X 8. I have never made a card this size...I am thinking about adding a pearl to each cloud. The saying is from Kristal Andrew stamp set "Winged Things". This stamp set is full of so many possibilities. Visit her blog and tell her you saw my card: http://www.kandrewdesigns.com/ Hope you enjoy this card and please leave a comment because we all love comments.
