Happy Friday!!

Good morning everyone....I had a great stamping kinda day yesterday!!! I made several cards for DT commitments and just for fun....this is one of the fun ones!! I made it for the Mojo Monday #199 Sketch challenge and I used a Verve stamp called Up, Up and Away. The balloon, trees, and grass were all paper pieced using Echo Park's A Walk in the Park dp. Sewing was done around the background edges and the ribbon, button, and twine finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Crafts and Me Challenges - summertime
2. Crazy Amigo Challenge - fly away
3. Deep Ocean Challenge - cards
4. Party Time Tuesdays Challenge - blue skys and sunny days
5. The Stamping Boutique - summer scene
6. Pollycraft Monday Challenge - the great outdoors

I am off a little later this morning to the Grapevine Rubber Stamps and Paper Arts Festival this weekend......My friend, Bev (TexasGrammy), and I are going to demp for 2 days in the Rubbernecker booth. We always have so much fun...if you are in the area, come on over...we would love to see ya!!!!

Joan, I really love this! All the paper piecing makes it look like a paper quilt --- my favorite kind of quilting! Great use for scraps, which is why I just can't bring myself to throw any away!
