Lifting My Spirits

Some of you may know that there was a new addition to our house last August…she’s my craftin’ buddy, cookie baking, homework helping, hair pulling out, chaos causing adorable granddaughter.  Some of you know her as Miss B others as Brooke.  I told my husband that I’ve created a monster and I’m pretty sure that her dad doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into when she comes to live with him, but she’s leaving us soon and I’ve had a terrific group of friends trying to lift my spirits.

Lifting Spirits Z Card

I saw a Z fold card on Pinterest and decided that it would be a great fold to try.  When I looked at the card closed I imagined layers and since I wanted to recognize someone from church that is really trying to “lift me up” I reached for the Lifting Spirits stamps.  I fell in love with this little Red Baron airplane (notice it’s blue and purple, LOL!) and our town is full of Hot Air Balloons so I knew it had to be added to my collection.  I added some thin 3D Foam Tape to the back of the banner and I used the regular Foam Tape on the Hot Air Balloon.  The clouds are stamped in glacier, but everything else was colored with the Shin Han markers.

I hope you’ve enjoyed stopping by today and will come back again soon.  I’m heading back to the craft room to work on Challenges for the week!
