I have had a great weekend. My husband and I went up to Two Harbors, MN for the Two Harbors Kayak Festival. I participated in a clinic and got out paddling on Lake Superior for the first time! I was out there for a couple of hours and swells were about 2 feet, which is pretty tame for Superior, but more than I am used to. I didn't dump though, so I count it a success. However, I did get a nice sunburn because it was cloudy when I started and blazing sun by the time I got done. I have a nice pair of raccoon eyes from my sunglasses! Now I am back to work and back to crafting. Here is what I made today:
This card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used white cardstock for the base, then trimmed some brown cardstock 1/8" smaller and the striped patterned cardstock 1/8" smaller than that. I wrapped the striped cardstock with some honeydew twine from The Twinery. The hot air balloon is from Everyday Pop-Up Cards, cut at 3 1/4." I gave it a Peachy Keen face and adhered it to the card with foam tape. The clouds are from Create a Critter, cut at 1 1/4" and also with Peachy Keen faces. I used two stamps from Scrappy Moms for the sentiments, which are matted with cardstock, each layer 1/8" larger than the previous layer. I finished off the card with some star dust Stickles around the edges of the clouds. I think it would make a cute encouragement card or one for a graduation. Enjoy!
I made this for the following challenges:
