I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Flyin' By


I can't believe it has been a month since my last post!  Time is"flyin' by"!  Pun intended! So much for staying in the creative flow  Had a little health backslide, but finally I am on the upswing for a change {knock on wood}. The only "illness" I want now is Spring Fever! 

Of course, while away from my crafting corner, I acquired a slight obsession with Paper Craft Magazine. With no creative mojo or energy myself, I soaked up the creativity of others. The current issue has this great hot air balloon download and I decided to give it a try.   What a jumpstart!  I had so much fun with this card!  The balloon basket did give me a little challenge until I decided on this white embossed one. Needless to say, I now have a small array of balloon baskets for future use.

I borrowed the color scheme from last week's Play Date Cafe challenge, so bright and cheery! Eat Sleep Stamp provided me with some sketchy inspiration. 

Stamps: Digital Sentiment - Whimsy Stamps, Raindrop Echo Designs. Cloud digital stamp by Meljen Designs.
Paper:  DP and cardstock from stash.
Extras:  Balloon template -Paper Crafts Mag (March/Apr2011); Seeing Spots embossing folder; mini dot emboss folder; corner punch; scallop border punch; pink/white baker's twine; pink gems; royal blue plaid ribbon.

Eat Sleep Stamp - Sketch #121
Stampin Royalty - #63 Texturize

As I reread, unfortunately my creative writing skills are rusty also as this is really a dry posting!  So, til next time ---
