Heart Air Balloon

Good morning everyone!  I actually had a decent night sleep.  Only one wake up last night when my two year old climbed into bed with us and then all three kids slept until after 7 this morning. Life is better with sleep wouldn't you agree?  Yesterday was a fabulous day because I was able to complete two challenges and for one challenge I made 2 cards!!

This is my take on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #35 . It's a week late but I liked the sketch so much I wanted to give it a try. I decided to use 2 stamps from the Sweet Centers stamp set to may a Heart air balloon. What do you think? Does it work? Last night I was a little disappointed with it.  I thought maybe it was just too busy, too much going on, but then when I got up this morning to take the pictures I decided I really liked it. The colours are fun and the balloon is something new. It will be perfect to give to my daughter for Valentine's day before she goes to school. I'll make something a little bit more masculine for the boys.

Paper:  whisper white, Razzleberry Lemonade dp
Ink:  Pumpkin pie, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo
Accessories: NSU pink grosgrain ribbon, Circle Scissor, dimensionals
Stamp set:  Sweet Centers, Grateful Greetings.


  1. Oh, so that's what you meant about waking up and loving the card in the morning...great colours here and I love the way the balloon comes off the circle :) Perfect Valentines card for a girl :)

  2. This is so sweet! I love the balloon - very nicely done :)

  3. I'm a firm believer in the "Life is better with sleep" mantra =)

    Fabulous card - love all the papers & colors you've used, Laurel!
