In High Spirits....FMS272





Hot Air balloons just seem to make people smile so I hope this card will do just as it says and lift someone's spirits!  And I must say the picture below lifted my spirits! Doesn't everyone attend their very first Monster Truck Rally wearing a monster truck shirt and a black tutu adorned with silvery sparkle stars and red cowboy boots?  The boots were chosen because they matched the ear muffs.....of course they do......this gal can accessorize!







I love the cluster of shapes in this week's Freshly Made Sketch!  My very talented friend Cecile designed it - join us!


Stamps: Lift MeUp, Kinda Eclectic
Ink:  Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder, So Saffron, Smoky Slate

That's an awesome card Linda! Love the little sun shine peeking through the clouds. And I am with Claire...I wear a tutu and cowboy boots to any event that I can. ;)

This card definitely lifts my spirits with it's crisp, clean design! Love it! I've never been to a monster truck rally -- I feel like I'm missing out.

Hot air balloons definitely lift your spirits. I actually went up in one once - although it was tethered so I didn't go up very high! Love the starburst on the side!

Linda I just love this card! I especially the like the placement of the cloud and sunshine! So clever.
Your little monster truck fan is adorable in her get-up as too! Too cute! Hugs.

Your card is as perfectly accessorozed as Miss Emma - love those balloons and the sunburst is a great look.

You've got a miniature Coco Chanel on your hands, Miss Linda. Get ready because it won't be long before she's asking you to put chains in her hems. By the way, I personally love her carefully and well-chosen clothing. Your card is fabulous! I love the way you cleverly worked the stamped sun and the die cut cloud in with the two balloons. I'm sure it will brighten someone's day!

And here I neglected those balloons in my shopping. That was foolish. Love this card! Also....I need Emma to come pick out outfits for me. She has a personality and flair that I'm totally missing!
