AIRPLANES and a card :)

Hello, I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend. I know I did, we went to the Fargo Airsho! I spent a good hour going through my pictures and videos this morning, all 1102 of them! Here are a few of my favorites:

It was a gorgeous day as you can see from the pictures and if you can't tell I LOVE airplanes! The Blue Angels are simply amazing to watch, I could watch them all day long.

Ok, on to what you really came here to see, some crafting! Last week you may have noticed I finally joined in on the Our Creative Corner Challenge, well this week I'm adding a few new challenge blogs to my list of inspiration. Our Creative Corner posed the challenge of using fruit in your creation, while CAS-Fridays and Clean & Simple Stamping teamed up for a sketch challenge. Here is the OCC inspiration photo:
And here is the CAS-Fridays and Clean & Simple Stamping sketch:
In case you haven't figured it out I'm combining all three challenges in one card! So without further ado here it is:
The balloons came from the Stampin' Up! Sock Monkey set. The strings on the balloons are of course Trendy Twine in yummy Strawberry Cupcake Pink. The papers are Stampin' Up! Pretty in Pink cardstock for the base and October Afternoon's Cherry Hill: Tea Towel (the cherries are one side and the dictionary text is the other).
The cute little sentiment is from the Sweet Thoughts set over at My Thoughts Exactly and I used Dew Drop Brilliance Galaxy Gold to ink all the stamps.

I hope you have been inspired by my card today and be sure to stop by all the challenges to check them out. If you have the courage enter one, you never what may come of it if you don't try!

Happy crafting,

  4. This is simply adorable. The pinks and the cherries sweet as can be - love the balloons with the baker's twine strings and dictionary paper is always a hit in my book! Terrific job on the fruit challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.

  5. Love that you used the dictionary paper with the cherry paper! It's totally unexpected, but really works together. Thanks for having Fun with Fruit at Our Creative Corner this week!
