This card ended up being a journey; trying to get to point A but ended up at point B. The yellow base is made using the wax resist technique. I also used a paper doily, Studio G sentiment, leaf stickers, and tiny pearls. If you want to join in the fun at Addicted to CAS, you can click HERE.

Yes...another post...I had the day off because I have been working on the weekends. It was great to get caught up on cleaning and I had a little fun along the way. This card is for Words 2 Scrap By which is having a Dr Seuss inspired challenge. I was having a hard time deciding what to create when I ran across these hot air balloons by Bird. I have to admit that I have never seen a Balloon Glow but DH & I once took a ride in one. My favorite part was skimming the top of the tasseled corn...it was amazing.
Another fun challenge at Cards in Envy. When I saw the theme I immediately thought of baseball; an all-american summer past time. I decided to go retro and found this awesome image at Free Vintage Digital Stamps. Keeping with the all-american theme, I decided to create the background out of washi tape. I added some stitching, a baseball and sentiment to finish the card. I think I will be saving this card for my BIL's 50th birthday which is later this year.

A fun sketch shared by Brenda. When I saw the sketch my mind immediately went to these gears that have been in my stash for awhile by Little Yellow Bicycle. The silver foil is by Recollections; the brown may be by Adornit. Sentiment is a mix of the computer and stickers. I am giving this card to my baby brother.

WooHoo! It is Sunday which also means Funday if you are like me and look forward to a new sketch from OWH. This sketch is courtesy of Anji. The posted sketch was not viewable, so I used my best guess to follow the layout on her card. The chipboard is by Imagininse and the lined paper is October Afternoon (a piece of scrap I could not throw away).
