CCEE1740 ~ Balloons Around the World Day!

Hello friends!

It's Balloons Around the World Day! 
Today we celebrate the joy and delight that balloons bring to our lives :)
Frances is the hostess for this round of the CCEE Stampers challenge 1740,
so this is my take on using balloons on a card.


I've used a stamp from The Cat's Pajamas ~  called I are fun.
This stamp stole my heart the minute I saw it, years ago!
I actually didn't buy it until the beginning of this year
when they were retiring it - oh no no no!
that. just. can't. be!

The bear and balloons for *Balloons around the World Day*
are colored with my prismacolor markers.
I've paired it with some festive paper from Making Memories
called Children at Play - a paper pad I've had for forever!
And some buttons in coordinating colors ....
it's been awhile since I've played with .. petted .. used buttons! :)

The inside isn't stamped but this is a peek at the inside
look and the dimension :)

Please be sure to stop by the CCEE Stampers Inspiration blog
to see what the DT has made this week! 
And if you add your card to a gallery, please use the keyword CCEE1740
so we can find your card!

Thanks for your visit today :)
Big hugs, bigger blessings! ♥
