Up and Away!

So, if you happened to see my big news yesterday, that is pretty exciting,  huh?  Yup. Totes.  I'm so wicked excited!  However, I have to admit, the card I'm sharing with you today was probably my absolute favorite of all those I sent in.  It took a bit of time, but it turned out even better than the picture I had in my head and I just LOVE it when that happens!

Congrats Balloon

Squeeee!!!!  Isn't it fun?  I lightly sketched the balloon and then I used a total of seven different stamp sets to bring it all together.  I stamped the tiny pieces randomly until I was happy with the fill.  This was SO much fun to do!  I loved every minute of it!

I have included the supplies in the inlinkz below if you are curious.  Seriously, though, I love this card.  I love that I made it.  I love that I even tried it because this is not something I would normally consider to be a task I could accomplish successfully.  AND... the best part... this card was totally inspired by toothpaste.  For reals.  Well, not the paste, itself, but rather the tube/box it comes in.  AND...as it so happens, when you apologize to the lady who is trying to actually buy toothpaste at Target while you are busy taking pictures, she says you are fine and totes acts like it is COMPLETELY normal to be taking random pictures of toothpaste.   Lady at Target, I commend you - we are obviously of like mind.  Because it obviously IS totally normal.  Just sayin'.

And with that, my friends, I hope you...

Have a Happy!
