RCC #84 ~ Summer Fun

 {This post was supposed to go live yesterday, but somehow I managed to mess it up and it did not go as scheduled!}

Hey everyone! This is the final week of the Ribbon Carousel’s August Challenge, Summer time fun!

I have been so busy this summer, that I really haven’t had lots of down time, but I thought of just watching the sky and seeing balloons floating lazily by so that is my inspiration for today’s card.  I did use a cloud embossing folder for the background, but it is hard to see in the picture.

Paper: Bazzill Card Shoppe, MME  Accessories: Balloon Trio dies (YNS), Cloud Embossing Folder (Darice), Hemp Twine, Brads.

I am off to work today, the tourist season is starting to wind down so it is getting a lot quieter!  I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

YNS After Party!

Hey everyone!  Time for the YNS after release party, we had so much fun that we want to keep the fun going!  I have also used the sketch from this month’s YNS challenge!

I loved the sentiment from the Moving Ellie clear set that was just released and wanted to feature it on my card.
