Grateful to our Soldiers...
I cannot believe how fast my vacation day went. I did a few household things and then my hubby took me for an ice cream at lunch time. I came back and made two cards and it's after 5:00!
I made this for our friends' son who is in Afghanistan. I said Iraq by mistake previously. I just wanted to say hello and tell him how grateful we were for what they are doing.
I bought this hot air balloon, by B Line Designs, with my credits from the lss yard sale. I love hot air balloons. It's not the perfect balloon because it's kind of hard to color those little tiny images on the guy and all that, but they only had two at the store and the other had two balloons and was bigger than this one. I have a tough time with big images. The sentiment is CTMH.
I made sure I kept it flat. I don't want to hold it up any further. I intended to send it to get there by July 4th. I colored in with Copics and used various unknown scraps of paper. I think the two textured papers are Bazzill and the printed could be DCWV. Thanks for looking!
