About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

You Lift Me Up!

I don't know if you have ever seen any of Gerda Steiner's designs, but they quite cute! Follow the link to check them out. She has started freebie challenge. The very first one is currently underway and I have decided to join in on the fun.  The freebie is of hot air balloons for this challenge. Here is the card:
It was a very quick and simple card:
Card Base: Kraft paper
Vertical Stripe: white cardstock sponged with Ballet Blue ink from Stampin UP. I used different sizes scalloped ovals to form clouds.
Images: Hot air balloon from Gerda Steiner in 3 different sizes, colored with sharpie markers, and fussy cut.
Sentiment: Printed from computer.

I hope you like it.
