Up, Up & Away

September greets us with many birthdays, and I'm so thankful I decided to make cards before Matthew came so I had things ready to go! Between feedings, changing, baths, meals, cleaning, laundry and homeschooling... yeah, you can see where I'm going with this!
Some days I wonder how I am going to get it all done, and other days I just realize I'm not.... and remind myself that's OK!
My nephews have birthdays this month and because they live in different places I thought duplicating their card was "safe". HA. I typically don't make cards that are the same.... but I thought this was a cute card, and it was fun to make - so two it was.
This is a Penny Black stamp. I stamped it a few more times on white cardstock and just cut out the balloon to use and added a little doodling beside them. I think you can click on the images to enlarge them.
Here it is a little bit closer.
I also used foam tape to pop them up a bit to add a bit of dimension.
I colored using my Copic Markers (might have a few more of those on my Christmas wish list!).
Hope you're having a fantastic week. We head to Edmonton for our first road trip with Matthew as Megan has an orthodontist appointment for her braces. Should be fun... HELLO COSTCO! :)
It's getting cooler outside (down right cold the last couple of mornings!). David said the winter is a 4-letter word. HAHA. So true though. We are already missing the warm (OK, hot) breezes of Arizona and dream of being there again.... I think it's just knowing that deep freeze is on it's way and that summer has drawn to a close. Fall is beautiful though (if you can get past the fact that summer has ended) - the trees are starting to change, I can pack up the bathing suit and pull our the big, bulky sweaters! :)
I think those are still packed... guess it's time to finish unpacking....

I am excited for Autumn to be unfolding. I love the burnished colours. All though we woke to a sugaring of snow today, I can still see the leaves are turning. I love the baloon flying away effect of those cards!
