Hello and happy Monday Y'all! Did you know that Our Craft Lounge announced it's 100th challenge last Friday? The theme for this challenge was to use numbers. I have to admit, I was stumped at first and didn't know what I was going to do. I e-mailed my OCL partner in crime, Debbie Fisher, and she came up with a boatload of suggestions for me. All of a sudden, the light came on and I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I decided to make a 5 x 7 calendar page for February. Yeah, I am ahead of the game! I printed the calendar and then cut it down to the size I wanted. I stamped the adorable hot air balloon from the OCL Spilling Over Cling Set onto some white cardstock with black ink and then stamped it again onto this adorable light blue paper from Pebbles. There are the cutest itsy bitzy white stars all over the light blue background. LOVE! I paper pieced the balloon, basket and the little heart. I used a piece of Cranberry Distress Dots cardstock from Memory Box for the little hearts. The hearts that are spilling out of the basket are pink and sparkly! I attached the calendar panel to a red layer that was diecut with a Spellbinders die. The calendar panel is attached to the base with foam tape to give just enough lift to allow the ribbon to slide underneath.
There is still time to play along with this challenge, head on over the the Our Craft Lounge blog and play along. You could win a prize and some awesome bragging rights!
