Up Up and Away

Hello all!

A little chilly here in Calgary this morning.  Fall is definitely here.  **sigh** that means a long winter is just around the corner.  Until it gets here I still want to think of warm weather and sunny days.


Our challenge for you this week at Use It Tuesday is one I just love.  Odds, Ends, Scraps & Pieces.  It’s time to clear off those little bits and bobs off of your scrap desk!  We all have them, those little left over bits after we create other projects, my desk is full of them for sure!

So I created this fun birthday card which I just love!


The blue piece is one of the few card starbursts I had left..I have had those forever!  The stars were just hanging around on my desk from other projects. The stamp set that I used for the balloon is the What’s Up colllection from Hero Arts.  I’ve had it for awhile but never cracked it open.  I really like this image and will probably create more with it.  The paper banners were just some scraps.  I did a little bit of embossing and added some glossy accents to the colored balloons.   The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.

I hope you like it and please stop by the blog to see the other DT inspirations and to play along with us this week.
