Inspired By #6 - Got Mail?

Happy Thursday, peeps! Laurel has an adorable photo prompt for us today for Inspired By!  Check out this little fella:

Despite its cute factor, I admit the challenge had me stumped!!!  I don't have any squirrel stamps, LOL!  In the end, I chose the little plane image from PTI's Tiny Treats Valentine made me think of air mail, so that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!  Here ya go:

I used lots of oldies but goodies here....a scrap of red gingham from my stash; a Bella cloud stamp; some vellum clouds cut with the Word Bubbles die, as well as a speech bubble from the same set!  I masked the plane image and stamped the clouds over top, then colored it with markers and an aquapainter.  The little heart vapor trail was drawn with a black marker.  I used a couple leftover hearts from a couple of days ago to accent the sentiment:

I sponged the vellum clouds with some white ink to make the stand out a little more:

And used the same die to cut out a little "cloud" for the inside!

We sure would love for you to play along with the challenge this week!  Be sure to check out what the design team has'll get lots of inspiration from them as well!

We had another snow day yesterday...more like an ice we did a little painting, we played  with dolls, and watched a movie.  But this is what a 7 year-old does when she is bored and I am not paying attention to her...she paints a banana skin:

She is too much!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is a GREAT card – love everything about it – the colors, the stamps .. just everything. I’ve not seen that cloud background stamp before – it’s perfect. And talk about perfect … there’s our darling mischievous Miss C. Gotta love that face. Hugs to you both
