Oh I am so under the wire on this one!  Verve started a new challenge last month called Ready, Set, Stamp where you are to use a specific stamp set.  This month’s challenge is to use “Up, Up and Away”.  I couldn’t resist playing along even though I just recently saw the challenge.

The deadline for submission is in less than 1 hour!  Ack!!smileydogrunani.gif


The larger tree and the sentiment are from other Verve stamp sets.  The balloons have been paper pieced with Basic Grey’s “Cappella” designer paper.


Just a short post today. Two of my sisters are visiting to attend my son’s graduation with us tomorrow.  Good times.

Happy Crafting!

Papers: Papertrey Ink “Vintage Cream” and “True Black”; Basic Grey “Cappella”
