Uplifting Greetings

Happy Hellos Everyone:

It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon here in Baltimore and I hope wherever you are it's just as beautiful. I have to for warn you there are a couple of post that will follow my initial post today. Hopefully, you have an opportunity to stop by again to take a look at what I managed to create. I began to think, this week would probably appear to me as a blur when I thought of all the things I wanted and need to do prior to the fourth of July celebration. So, yesterday I worked on a few cards and a project, I wanted to share with you.

First up is a card I made to participate in this week's challenge over at CR84FN. I have to tell you... I wanted this stamp every since I first laid eyes on it months ago. However, my LSS did not carry it until recently. I must admit, I was a little disappointed when I received my stamp. It was a mini. So, I didn't use it, until now. Since I'm admitting things....I was happy with my little mini--very happy--like happy hellos, happy. I should have used it long ago.  Well anyway, just below is the inspirational photo..




I thought the color selection was wonderful--very seasonal.
...as a result, this is what I created....


 

This was actual a fun card to make. Who couldn't love a flowered hot air balloon? Hot air balloons seems to be perfect for just about any occasion. Well, as always, thanks for visiting The Peddler's Gallery. I hope you like what you've seen and perhaps it may have inspired you too. Come back and visit real soon.

Such a pretty card. I know what you mean about feel a bit let down when you finally get a hold of a stamp you've been admiring since forever. But I must say it does look rather sweet. Love the patterns. Lovely card.
