Up and Away

Hello!  Lately, I’ve been trying to use stamps and other products that I’ve had for some time and have neglected to use.  The stamp that I have used here is from Crafty Paws….it was a freebie eons ago, and I thought the little pups in their balloon was so cute…..and that’s as far as it went until now :/  I colored this up with my Prismacolors, then used the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches as a guide for putting the card together.

It’s such a versatile sketch, that I’m sure I’ll be using it again and again :)  It’s also a great layout to use scraps up, which I did with my card.  The diagonal strip needed some “oomph”, so I cut arrows in it with my Cricut, then layered it over some red.  The sentiment is made with tiny alpha stickers on a die cut circle.  I doodled some more arrows around the image and added some bright adhesive embellishments to finish this card off :)

In addition to Tuesday Morning Sketches, I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post of any kind, as life has been throwing me a number of curve balls lately, and it’s been all I can do to keep my head above water!!  With that being said, I better get back into the groove of things, and start swimming again!!

This card is for the latest challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.  with the theme being Wintertime.

 Our sponsors are

 Star Stampz and Sweet N’ Sassy .

 I used the adorable Light Up My Life image from Sweet N’ Sassy for my project.  I had the light bulb print paper left over from a Christmas stack, and took the color scheme from that, as I colored the image in with my SN markers.  I did a bit of inking around the edges, and added some sparkle for snow.  I used coordinating scraps from the same stack for the layout, added some die cut snowflakes, a bit more sparkle, and a sentiment that I cut with my Cricut.  I hope you can stop by the C.R.A.F.T. blog and check out the amazing projects my fellow DT members have created, and enter your own Winter project :)
