You Inspire Me

It's been pretty warm out here. Warm falls mean warm winters which means wet winters... I hate wet winters. I'm really hoping for some cooler weather soon. 70's in late October just seems wrong... I've got some cutey patotie cardis that I'm ready to wear...

That said, it's been REALLY hard to make holiday cards right now... I want bright happy pink flowers on every card! ;-) So today we have a fun little card with some hot air balloons!

I loved hot air balloons as a kid. For some reason, I remember my mom trying to get me into one and I freaked out about it. By the time I was ready to get on the hot air balloon, they were closed for the day. Alas, a lost opportunity as I'd love to go on a hot air balloon ride now!

The balloons are colored with Copics and then cut out. They're adhered to the card with some dimensional adhesive to add a little depth to the card as well.




Stamps: (Up Up and Away, Dare to Be You) Verve
Ink: (Tuxedo Black) Memento
Coloring Medium: Copics
Cardstock, Fibers: PTI
Tools: (corner rounder) We R Memory Keepers), (texture plate) PTI
