It's All in the Family

Oooooo! Patsmethers you reign supreme as Queen for the Day! I have been cruising your SCS gallery all weekend trying to settle on a card to case. I must admit to being intimidated casing you, my dear. You've got more talent wrapped up in the tip of your pinky than I do in my entire body, and I keep expecting to find your pretty smiling face in the Dirty Dozen gallery soon! Your cards are always a work of the "heart," even if you do try to act like you're all naughty or sumpin'. But we know what a big heart you have. Sooooo, I just had to case one of your sweet HM cards, and I especially love this darling Fly Away card you made.

I just had to pull out my adorable li'l teddy bear and pair him up with these big balloons. After all, he needs some big balloons to help him lift off! I paper pieced my balloons and colored teddy with Copic markers. I sponged Soft Sky, Barely Banana, and Mellow Moss on the background.  I used my notched corner punch and threaded pink embroidery thread around that.

I keep praying that Stampin' Up will bring back permanently some of the In Colors they've introduced these past few years. I especially love the softness of Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky.

In any event, CONGRATULATIONS, Pat on being Queen for the Day! You're one of the bestest!!
I made my next card for the Twisted Sisters challenge to case a card of JamiePTS who happens to be Pat's daughter-in-law!  How cool that they both were honored by being featured in challenges this weekend!  I cased Jamie's darling truck load of love card as I needed to make a birthday card for my grandson. 

I used SU reinkers to watercolor my scene, except for the sky, which I sponged Soft Sky using a post-it note punched with the scallop punch as my template.

Happy Birthday, Brody!  We love you!
