Hello Friend!

Hi All! And a very Happy Monday to you! Today I'm back with another Fabulous Stamps R Us Challenge! Yay! Today our Theme is "Friendship".  So make up a card/creation specifically for a friend and join in the fun! 8-) Our Wonderful Challenge Sponsor is Karber Digital Images, and Berenice has put together a fabulous prize for one lucky  winner!  So I sure hope you can play along with us.  And please stop by the Stamps R Us Blog to take a peek at the Adorableness the rest of the Fabulous Design Team has created for your inspiration! 8-)

I printed out my Darling little Balloon Leslie onto Flourishes Classic White and did a little paper piecing using some Adorable dp's from MME's Lime Twist "Fly a Kite" collection and added a bit of coloring and shading with my trusty Copics. I added my Big fluffy clouds using my favorite cloud template from Bev Rochester ( that my Wonderful SRU team mate Marilyn Scheller shared with me), Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a small stenciling brush... For my mats and BG pieces  I used a combination Kraft CS from my stash and more dp's from MME's Lime Twist "fly a Kite" collection.  Love these papers, I tell ya, they are so sweet and cheerful! I think I am becoming addicted to MME 8-).. lol  Anyway,I popped up my Fun image panel with some dimensionals, added some neat little kraft photo corners and a touch of Glossy accents to the Hot Air Balloon's hearts and Leslie's glasses too!  And to finish it all up, stamped my Flourishes Sentiment onto a small matted up tag with Memento Rich Cocoa, added a few sweet adhesive pearls and a cute little epoxy chipboard heart button all tied up with a bit of yummy aqua bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds... Pretty easy peasy, huh? 8-)..

Sure hope your all have a Wonderful Day & Thanks so much for Dropping in! 

Thanks for stopping by!

NO, no, it doesn't look easy at all. That's what I love about your cards. They are little envelope sized masterpieces and any attempt to recreate on my part would be horrific. LOVE YOUR WORK!
