I was invited to be a guest designer this month for a fun site called Cute Card Thursday.
Each week they post a challenge and projects based around the theme of the week. There is some serious talent over there and I am honored to get to share some ideas with their visitors.
This week the theme is:
Come Fly With Me
Now, don’t ask me why, but everytime I say the theme to myself, I see kites in the air (for the flying theme) and I hear that song from the 80’s or 90’s… “Come Sail Away… come sail away, come sail away with me….”. LOL! I know the theme says nothing about sailing, but apparently my brain thinks that way anyway!
But here is the card I came up with based on this theme:
Now, where are the kites? You may be asking…. yeah, well, about that. I apparently couldn’t cut a kite worth a darn! Seriously! I hacked away at a piece of designer paper trying to make squares and triangles and diamond shapes and lets just say it never looked pretty.
So I resorted to balloons instead. They float in the air like kites. So that counts, right?
The boy stamp image is from Lean on Me from Stampin’ Up! (I just didn’t ink up the paper airplane or sentiment) and is on the retiring list. So if you think he is cute, you have through this month to grab him.
And if you want to try out the challenge for this week. Create something that you are inspired to make based on the theme “Come Fly With Me” and hop over to CuteCardsThursday to link your project up!
