Love love love... Airy, Breezy love and Oddness!

the challenges are EVERYWHERE, and there are cute lovie-dovie images everywhere, but one of my absolute FAVE (and totally versatile) valentiney images is THIS ONE from (natch)

it's a hot air balloon, it has stripes, it has a BANNER - what more could you want?

so i made a lovie-dovie card, and used these RIDICULOUSLY cute teeny little alphas sent to me by the sensational Karen. here's m'card:

seriously - LOOK:


they certainly aren't available HERE, and Karen knows how much i loves my tiny alphas, so THANK YOU, lovely, for sending these little darlings my way! :D

so the challenges that inspired this one?

BasicGrey Challenges - All Heart (i think i'm in LOVE with the Hopscotch line!)
The Crafty Pad - Love is in The Air (Lorraine, FABBY first post, and congrats!)
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Hearts Gone Wild!
and Pile It On's "Bright and Breezy" challenge

i am ALL about colouring lately, and i just wish i had better light in this house so i could do it more often!

so i have another card i'm just finishing up before heading to yoga, so i may be back to post a little later tonight. :)

OH, and in Orange news, Miss O is holding steady - she seems stable and comfortable, so we're just enjoying whatever time she's got. i think she seems to have made some improvements, but i'm also not going to try to kid myself into thinking she'll be around for years to come.

AND things at work are still fantastic. i'm getting bumped up with extra authorities, so that means they trust me and i'm hoping it's gearing me up for what's ahead. fingers crossed!


  1. Love the hopscotch papers too and your card is fab! Glad work going well and glad Miss O is comfortable.... robin

  7. I am in LUFFFFFF with your card... and I'm so thrilled you could put the little alphas to use (hope you didn't go cross-eyed; they really are teensy aren't they? You already know how I love it when you mat your title alphas and make it pop like crazy - one of these days I'm going to do that ;) And at the risk of this turning into a novel... have I told you lately how much I'm loving your colouring??
