Up, Up and AWAY!!!

Happy Occasions Mini/Sale a Bration Preorder day everyone J Oh yes and the 1st of December too!!! Our week continues to be a little gray here in Ottawa so again I chose to brighten up my craft space with an uplifting card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketch.

My family and I will be heading home to Nova Scotia 2 weeks from today to spend the Christmas Season with our family and friends. I am sooooo looking forward to this time and break from the busy couple of months I have had but already my mind is looking forward to 2012.

In January I am going to be holding a 3 month Birthday Card Club and I believe this card may be one of the 9 designs we will be going with...

My Challenge:
My Card:
Tiny Tips:
I am not sure about you all out there but I am not a huge fan of the craft ink. I find it a little hard to work with because of the added drying time required. That being said I often have a need for some white on my cards and thus my solution is to use my versa mark, white embossing powder and heat tool. Yes there are a few extra steps required but I find the end result to be exactly what I am looking for! Just love these "puffy" clouds.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I just used this set today! What a great idea for the clouds...and I love the glitter! Thanks for joining Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. Love the balloons soaring - especially with the glitter!

  3. I agree that embossing with white is so much better than stamping with white. The color is so much more vibrant. I love your take on the sketch with, especially since you added some glitter to the balloons! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
