Wilbur's Flying High on Love

This card makes me feel like I'm at the country fair. The image is Wilbur with Balloon from Stamping Bella. With his heart balloon I thought he would be perfect for sending some Valentine sentiments. Can ya tell I'm trying to squeeze these all in? I have a few more days yet so you might see one or two more. Hehe.

My sketch today is TCPtues195. The banner gave me the idea of a prized pig at the fair...flying high with his heart. So I ran with it. The design paper is My Mind's Eye Love me! Cardstock is a bunch of scraps but most likely Bazzil. I stamped wilbur onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored him with copics. Nesties helped make the layers of circles. The clouds were cut from a Memory Box die (a first time use for me and I've had them for almost a year already!) A clear Sakura glaze pen was applied to the circles on the hear balloon along with a little white pigment ink from a Signo Uniball pen. The banner was hand cut and then strung using jewelry braiding cord I found on clearance at JoAnn's eons ago. The black circles are plastic Bella Baubles. No stitching today...

We never got the snow they predicted for us today. This is the freakiest winter I have ever experienced in my life! We're halfway through February and we haven't had any snowfall to date. At this rate, we'll be ready for fair weather before you know it.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Wilbur? How have I never seen him at Bellaland before?! Am very impressed that you cut your banner by hand and love that little bit of white pen on the balloon - must remember that! Oh, and just to let you know....WE got your snow overnight! :)
