Mr. Slow Poke & Hot Air Balloon with I Need You

Happy Monday, all! Here are a couple of cards that I made using digital stamps from Jane's Doodles.


What? You didn't think that the cupcake would stay on his back without falling off, did you? I just thought that it would be safer to tie it up. I guess if worst comes to worst and he dropped it, he could always turn around and eat it. LOL!


I used the adorable Mr. Slow Poke and one of the cupcakes from the Cupcake Set for this card. Both images are available at Claudia & Company.


The patterned papers are from the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.


I used the yet to be release Hot Air Balloon for my second card. I adore the retro look they have! I colored the baskets with my Copic markers then connected the baskets and the balloons with thin crochet thread.


I paper pieced the balloons using papers from a digital kit called I Need You by Boutique Cute Doll. All the rest of the patterned papers are also from the same kit. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I'll keep you posted when this lovely digital stamp is released!



Here are the tags that I posted over at the poppystamps blog. Please hop over to find out more information. Thanks!

That's all for now. Hope your week is off to a great start!
