Up, Up and away!

A GIANT box of new goodies arrived yesterday, by I made myself promise to use some of the wonderful stamps that I already had that have only seen ink a few times before I use any of the new ones. But I assure you-they are calling my name from the box!!
See that wonderful glitter flourish above? Can you say GLITTER GLUE!?!?! I free-handed the flourish in pencil first and then traced it with the glue. It's so sparklie!! I made 2 of these cards, and check in tomorrow to find out why, WINK, WINK! I made both of these cards using the color combo from Jeanette Lyntons blog. Be sure to check out what she made.

That flourish is fabulous, Aaron! You freehanded that?! Wow! I really like that color combination. The second card looks so neat with the clouds and the stamping of the balloon. Great work, Aaron!

You are also a very strong person to resist the lure of new goodies!

These are both so fabulous. I love how you lightly stamped the balloon on the second one.

Good to know that the glitter glue picks up the color of ink used under it. Looks like I need to go play a little more with what I have as maybe I would've learned that from my own experience. Thanks for the inspiration!
