…in My Beautiful Balloon.
Yep, gonna be hummin' that one all day now. But that's ok. Better then Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz, Oh What a Relief it Is. And since it was clean out the refrigerator left over night, it might be the latter, later…ha!
A couple months ago my girlfriend and upline Rhonda (hey honey) had her meeting at a restaurant and after we ate they let us stay to do a shoebox swap. Everyone designs a card, and then you bring supplies for a certain amount of people. Like at my downline Christmas shoebox and potluck meeting in December, we are gonna do 7. You won't get to do everyone's card but this way we are not all rushed, and it gives us time to visit, and eat too.
So anyway this is the card that Martha Butler designed, and it is so cool. I put it together way later at home, so I am not definite sure if everything is in the original place or not.
Stamp Set: Sweet Centers, Loads of Love
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay, Summer Sun, Whisper White
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie
Misc: Scallop punch, Wide oval punch, oval punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, scallop circle from the Pennant Die, white gel pen, dimensionals
balloon is two wide oval Rich Razzleberry, two wide oval Pumpkin Pie,
one 1 3/4" circle punch in Summer Sun and then one Large Oval in Rich Razzleberry over top. Just layer them till you get the look you like. The scallop greeting is the scallop punch, layered crooked like over a Bermuda Bay scallop from the Pennant Die Scallop
I am so excited, my BFF Tracy called today and we were checking out flights for January when she is coming for Leadership and Regionals, and she JUST emailed me with her information, 56 sleeps, I can't stand it…thank goodness I am really busy that way the time will go fast.
Well I am gonna get off here, today was book keeping day, balancing check books, reports all the fun stuff. So my brain is tired. I am gonna go fix a hot caramel frappacinno thingie, and relax. Two and a Half Men is coming on…I love that show…the kid is more grown up then the brothers now…ha!
Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.

I just love this card. Can you explain how you did the balloon. I am assuming you used two of each color wide oval and one regular oval. How did you stamp the scallop circle?
and how did you mat the scallop circle? You can email me at Krazy4Bears@yahoo.com
