What, it's not Tuesday anymore? Another party I'm late to! So do you still want to see the teapot for the week? Here it is......
There is a very clever story to go along with it and you can find it here or on Cindy's glob. Our mission this week is to create a masculine card with something that flies and the destination is a young man who is battling testicular cancer at a very young age.
I found this challenge to be very, um, challenging. Usually a blank canvas - so to speak - doesn't give me problems, but this one was a reach. Something that flies and is masculine. Count out butterflies, dragonflies, and most birds. I could've used an airplane stamp - don't have any. Or a kite - nope. But then the gears got going as I was looking around the room and my eyes lit upon my new Petal Punch. Hmmm, if I take that large petal and cut some of the bottom off, would it, could it, become a hot air balloon? Or maybe three?
Yep, there will be a Balloon Ascent at the tea party this week. We'll fly above the clouds and try to boost Sean's spirits and let him know - the sky's the limit. Think happy thoughts.
The card base is from Mark's Finest Papers and the DSP is SU's distressed with Not Quite Navy ink and layered on a strip of Real Red cs. The cloud is Whisper White with the sentiment from A Muse stamped in Not Quite Navy. The Petal Punch balloons are Daffodil Delight cs, with baskets of Creamy Caramel cut from a small star punch. The faces, lines, and people are all hand drawn.
Come on, let's go see what's cooking in the gallery.
