It's the 17th and that means....
Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!! This month is all about THE GREAT OUTDOORS!! And... I had to use one of my new stamps... Half Pint Heroines!! Adore this set... just check out all the sentiments... a person could fall in love with just the sentiments in this set, let alone the images!!
My computer crashed and honestly, it's a project getting everything re-installed. Thinking I might have enough "steam" coming out my ears to keep this balloon in the air, LOL!! Nothing is the same as it was (pre-crash).
I live in Charlotte, NC... about 45 mins. south of Statesville and they have an annual Hot Air balloon festival. The festival isn't until the fall but.... I HAD to ink up this set!! Did a bunch of paper piecing with MME's Ms. Caroline Dolled Up papers, colored one of the girl images with copics and popped her up--popped her locks twice so they would be blowing in the wind!! The clouds are another image from this set... love the whimsical look! Added some stitching and seam binding from the Ribbon Carousel to finish it off.
Even with the steam... I am so thankful to be back up and able to blog....ya' know I was getting a little edgy!!
Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
Have a great week, I'm leaving shortly for a family reunion in Indianapolis (Indy) and it is so dry there... read today that a neighboring lake in Noblesville (boats sitting on cracked dirt) is being diverted to supply water to Indy....another guy painted his yard green as he was tired of looking at brown crunchy stuff... unusual weather!!
