Up, up and away!

Smiley from millan.net Here we are at Wednesday this week. Yay! The week is half over! I did have a fun time in my craft room yesterday though. I finished two fun cards. One to show you today and one for tomorrow!

Today's card is for someone that I know that will be a teenager in a week and a half and yes he is definitely counting! I have mentioned before that his favorite color is green so I had to use that as my primary color. The cute ant image is from the Doodle Pantry set appropriately named Balloon Ants. It was fun making this card because the ants are so cute! I pulled out my cloud stencil and some tempting turquoise ink to make the clouds. The balloon and sentiment are both still wet from the glossy accents so that is why they look a bit weird. The layout is this week's Crazy 4 Challenges blog challenge. The long image fit my plan perfectly! Sorry for the poor picture it is hard to get a good photo if it is cloudy outside which it was yesterday for sure!

Well, that is it for today. I hope you have a wonderful day today as you start your journey toward Friday!

Lorie, your clouds are beautiful. Who wouldn't want to go up, up and away on such a lovely day? Love what you did with your sketch and I really like that twisted twine/thread. I'm going to have to remember the tent fold for a vertical card, how come I never thought of that? Just a great card and I am sure he will love it.

Ver, very cute. The image is great. I always forget about the accents. I so many tools, gadgets and other embellishments that I forget everything that I do have.
I know what you mean about the clouds, we have had them here as well. I hope the sun decides to come out for you soon.
