November Stamp of the Month-Balloon Ride

Hi everyone.  Sorry I haven't written a post for a few weeks.  I had an operation and was in the hospital for 4 days.  I'm doing fine but it's a slow process.  Any little task saps my energy.  Since I've had some down time I did get a few chances to work in my craft room.  From The Heart Stamps has the cutest image for November and I had the perfect opportunity to use it for my project.

My granddaughter recently moved and I am missing her like crazy.  She found a teller position at a credit union and has just started her training.  I am very, very, very proud of her.  She is smart, caring and level-headed.  I know she will go far in her life.  So, to let her know how I feel, I made this card.

Purple is her favorite color so I started with my Balloon Ride image and some feminine papers.  She is also a bling girl so I added a strip of silver glitter paper and topped it with two strips of raspberry glitter paper.  I had a ball coloring the balloons and mice.

I don't know if you can tell from the photo but after I colored the balloons with various shades of purple I ran some diamond Stickles on top.  It ties the paper to the image and besides you can never have enough sparkle in your life.

I have a wonderful surprise inside the card but I don't want to give it all away because she hasn't received it in the mail yet.

Congratulations, my sugar girl!
