Popping in with a card. I know...shocking!! We attempted to camp this weekend but the rain, cold and mud sent us home a day earlier than planned. It took all day Monday to dry out and wash all our muddy clothes. It was a bummer really. To end the weekend on a high note, we took the boys to see the latest Pirates movie. Everyone liked it although I will say the mermaids were a bit freaky.
Following the class I took with Jennifer McGuire a couple of weeks ago, I took some time to really browse the stamp store. I used to go on a regular basis but now that I work full time I just can't make it there as often. On that trip I scooped up the MFT kite die and some MME paper pads. Oh, and this really cute sentiment stamp by Stampabilities. I finally put them all together into this card.
I thought the sentiment would go well not only with the kite but the hot air balloon images I have from PTI. The clouds use a CC Designs die from All That Scraps. I added some staples to 3 sides with the Tim Holtz mini stapler as well as a bit of stitching around the main panel. The layers are all on a base of kraft so it could be masculine if need be.
I give the kite die 2 thumbs up!! Very fun.
Thanks for stopping by,
