Up first today I have Theresa Momber's newest set, Up, Up And Away to share with you. Here is one card I have done with this set:




For this card, I cut an opening using a Spellbinders nestabilities and created a 'sky' on the inside of the card and attached the balloon to look like it was floating with the clouds. I think this would be a very fun birthday card for anyone! :D

Up next is Beth Silaika newest set called, Lots of Dots Alphabet...and what aLOT of possibilities with this set!! Here is my card for today with this set:


.
I heat embossed the whole alphabet in white embossing powder, except for the 'h' and the 'i' to form the word 'hi'. Then did just a tad of distressing, added a fun button and ribbon and ...done! Another fun card to hopefully brighten someones day!

Ok, ready for more eye candy? Here ya go!

How creative you are. Both cards are so cute. I love how you layered the scenic cutouts over the frame of the first one and on the second one, using the H and I in the alphabet to create the sentiment was a great idea. Well done.
