TSG Aim For The Clouds Blog hop!

Hello and welcome! If you are joining me from Jodi's blog you are in the right
place. If not head on over to the TSG blog to start hopping and to get details on
how you can win your very own Aim For The Clouds set.



aim for the clouds

Every year at my kiddo's school the kindergarten class hosts the Pony Express. They hop on some stick ponies and deliver happy mail to the students. It's a fun tradition and I usually send my kids more than one love note with a little treat attached. These are the first two that I'll send. I thought these cute hot air balloons would be perfect for both of them!

On a happy note....when I asked my daughter if she wanted to buy her valentines or have me make them, she looked at me like I was crazy and said "I want you to make them, of course...unless you don't want too. Do you want to? I can help." Do I want to make them? HA! like I would have bought them even if she wanted me too. :)

Thanks for stopping by today. Head on over to Maki's blog to keep on hopping!

I love Kraft paper and this look is awesome. I like both cards and like how you cut the stamped pieces apart to make it completely different stamp look. Great work thanks for sharing.
