Thinking of you...


I'm playing along with Card Patterns: Sketch 97 for the first time. I've recently been hopping all over Blogland looking for new card sketches and card challenge sites. And I'm glad I found this one. It looks like a nice place to play. :)

This pretty card is going to my friend Renee who is sending it off to a friend of hers.


Wanna know a secret about this card?! I bought this little My Favorite Things stamp for the intent of putting balloons in her hand, and know what?! I do not have a balloon on any of the Cricut Carts I have nor do I have a stamp or a punch?

How on Earth has that happened? So, I improvised and used American Crafts felt eggs from a old spring set and put 'em upside down! Víola! Instant balloons!! But you do know that I am now on the hunt for a balloon punch, of course!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and see ya'll for the start of the week tomorrow!!

Really cute card! I never would have guessed those weren't balloons to begin with. Martha Stewart has a balloon punch :).
