Happy Holidays...

Hello again!

My collection of Dreamerland Crafts stamps has been feeling quite neglected lately. So yesterday I made a point of pulling out my stamp binder and finding a cute holiday image to ink up. I was immediately enchanted by this Holiday Balloon Ride stamp and it's hot air balloon that looks like a giant snowman head. To help make it look like the balloon is flying high above the ground I also inked up the Mix and Match Christmas Snow Scene down at the bottom of the card. Because I was short on crafting time I opted to airbrush the background. And while I'm super happy with the sky, the color got a bit away from me down on the snow. To try and help that situation I decided a proper snow storm was in order so I used a paintbrush and Dr PH Martin's bleed proof white to flick snowflakes all over the scene. Hopefully the storm doesn't slow down our cute gift delivery team here.  :)

Alrighty, well thanks so much for stopping by today!
