Wee Memories Challenge #60

Links from the world wide web:
  • My dad did a funny thing today. I got home from work to find this article about cards from The Wall Street Journal tacked up on the refrigerator. While I'm rooting for homemade cards, I think that receiving anything snail mailed and handwritten would brighten anyone's day.
  • I wonder if this foody adventure in cheesecake would cause a stomachache.
  • Like the game Angry Birds? Play it online...and don't let your boss know, mkay?
For today's card, I wanted to do this week's Wee Memories Challenge (#60) which focused on a party theme. This was a perfect time to use these balloon 3D stickers that I got from Meg for my birthday. I thought it'd be super cute to have an animal hold a balloon that had a sentiment on it, which which animal fold? Oh, I know, an elephant. He can hold the balloon string in his trunk, perfect! Once I chose which balloon I wanted to use in the set, I picked out papers that coordinated with the colors of the balloon.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Red, Prussian Blue
Stamps: American Crafts- Dear Lizzy- Warbler (flag)
Paper: American Crafts- City Park, Die Cuts with a View- Nana's Kitchen
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch
Sticker: Sandylion Essentials- Balloons
White Gel Pen: Inkssentials

I spent some time tonight downloading and getting familiar with the latest version of OpenShot. I like the thought of embarking on an adventure in video editing and I hope to create more YouTube videos as the summer goes on.

Did anyone watch tonight's episode of The Bachelorette? **Spoiler alert! **

OMG, how can her radar be so off about that (explicative) Bentley?! I hope she gets a wake up call in next week's episode! On another note, whoo hoo...go JP!
