Follow Your Dreams

Hello everyone, I took some down time today to play along with the TCP Tuesday #310 challenge using Freshly Made Sketch 228.  I needed some down time.  We have been apartment shopping to move our daughter from Arkansas to Pennsylvania.  We live in PA and are about 2 hours from where her new job will be.  Unfortunately the apartments we have been seeing are not nice at all.  As a protective Momma I am just not happy with her being in place I wouldn't feel safe.  So this has been occupying our time, our heads and our hearts.  But she will be closer and we will see her more often so I know it will all work out.  

This weeks TCP Tuesday #310 is to use bunnies!  And in this case Buns.  I just love this adorable hot air balloon and I love making it different colors each time.  I started by using my copic air brush to make the background.  The stamped the stamp on multiple colors of paper and once on white cardstock to make my base image.  I colored the basket and buns with copics, then cut the patterned paper to fit the balloon.  I finished by adding die cut clouds and a sentiment.  

Freshly made sketch 228 gave me a jumping off point for my final placement of image and sentiment.
And here is a close up. 

Hope you have a great weekend!
