Really really love this card. Love what you did with the balloons.
Thanks for your comment Cathy - it's in the mail!



HAPPY BIRTHDAY NICOLETTE!!

WELCOME to Nicolette's Brithday Bash Blog Hop ~ June 1st & 2nd.  I'm so happy to be participating and celebrating with her and all the other wonderful, creative artists!

Please visit everyone ~ the links are at the bottom of this post.



The mission ~ create something DISNEY. 

When I thought of using the POOH AND FRIENDS cartridge, I sort of cringed.  This cartridge is really cute but the way the layers go together always intimidated me (it was one of the first cartridges I purchased too).  It's my own fault because I have never taken the time to really study the handbook so this was the perfect opportunity to work with it.

Here's my Heffalump!!  I also used a balloon from CELEBRATIONS.

The number paper and banner are from the DCWV Celebration Stack and the blue is from the Glitter Cardstock Mat Stack.




Heavy wire wrapped around a paint brush handle then stretched out a bit were used to make the strings.  I poked a hole near his hands and threaded the wire through and taped it on the back.

So glad you stopped by.

Please leave a comment (and I'd love for you to become a follower but it's not "required" but leaving a way for me to contact you is) for the chance to win a little something :)

Happy hopping!!
