Up Up and Away!

 The Holidays are all but over and I for one am sad to say goodbye to 2010! What a great year, oh It had its ups and downs- that's life. I have high hopes for 2011 I have been pondering my list of New Years resolutions and goals, more on that subject another day  {when I figure it all out} *wink*
  In the meantime how about a Mojo Monday sketch card? This weeks offering is a ca-ute stamp set by verve, and the oh so gorgeous Circa 1934 paper by cosmo cricket...did I mention its GORGEOUS??? {love}its vintage wallpaper and typewriter print look!

I put my cricut to work making a 5 1/4" scalloped circle with the Cindy loo cartridge, and smaller circles with plantin schoolbook cartridge. I stamped the hot air balloon onto watercolor paper and colored it in with markers and an aquapainter.The clouds were stamped, cut out and given a generous coat of smooch {love the shimmer} :)

The inside of the card is almost as pretty as the outside!

I feel guilty that it took me so long to ink up this stamp set, but now that I have I can tell you it made it directly to the shelf of favorites!! I would like to do a whole series of these, what a wonderful gift set they would make...if I can part with them.....IF :)

Happy creating! Subscribe to inkingpink for email updates.
