And Away We Go......


HI there!  Sorry I've been so long without a post!  The beginning of school sickness hit my house last week and into this weekend, so stamping has been LOW on my list!  My girls are on their way back to good health, but aren't quite there just yet!

My card is for last Tuesday's TCP Tuesday challenge from The Cat's Pajamas.  Leigh was our Hostess With the Mostess and she gave us a very challenging sketch to play with!  I ended up liking it in the end!  Hey, that's why they call it a challenge!

I used the darling Away We Go set paired with my favorite Cut Ups Cloud Border die.  The balloon was paper pieced and the bunny was stamped a second time, cut out and popped up for a little dimension.  The sentiment was cut out with the Cut Ups Easy Rosette Die.  Some machine stitching finishes the card.  All of the papers are from the Echo Park Summer Days pad.
