Hot Air Balloon Wishes



Good day, all!  Hope you've been having a lovely Saturday.  I've been busy in the Craft Cave this afternoon while Luis (despite coming home with a fever last night and crashing on the sofa for the whole evening) has been outside painting the house! He's really not very good about chilling out.  Hopefully I can get him to relax a bit this evening...  I'm going to try and bribe him with some fajitas.  :)


Today I made a little card using the colours from ColourQ and the sketch from Skipping Stones Design.  I was going to put some gems on the card but instead I used some scraps, a hole punch and some Glossy Accents to make little dew drop type thingys (you can see the shine on the bottom ones).  Okay, off to walk the hounds.  Have a good evening!


Cardstock:  (White) Gina K, (Pale Blue) Bazzill, (Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder) Stampin' Up

So I think it is a really good thing when I recognize which sketch challenge you were playing in even before seeing the graphic or reading about it! Great card! Love your colors too! And thanks for joining us over at Skipping Stones this week, so glad you are enjoying those stamps.

What a clever dew-drop idea - the shine is incredible! I've got to try that.
Poor Luis - hope he's feeling better. I can't imagine wanting to paint the house when feeling WELL, so maybe he's delirious?

I love these hot air balloons Jen! Not a good idea to paint the house with a fever - you're likely to end up with something very 'creative'! Vicky x

This is such a fun CAS design, Jen. I love those striped balloons! And I love seeing your "dew drops", because often do the same thing when I don't have the right color gems. Thanks for joining us this week at the ColourQ!
