Up, Up and Away!...

Well HEY there.

Nice to see ya!  After a day off yesterday, recovering from CHA last week and the wonderful birthday wishes this past weekend y'all left me on Facebook, I'm feeling as if I could float into the clouds today, ha!

Ok, not really, but today my card was made for TWO challenges.  My darling friend Mercy is being CASED' over at the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog and today is the "A Stitch in Time" challenge over at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog:

Now, how could I NOT case my sweet amazing friend?   That girl is the source of SO MUCH love and laughter in my life I can't even tell you- I cannot WAIT to see her later this month!   I even went to the stamp "archives" to pull out this same adorable "Fly Away" set from The Greeting Farm- just a wee bit of dust on it, LOL!  Isn't it sweet?  Here is my card, using the July Key Ingredients Kit by Taylored Expressions and a button by Crate Paper:

I used TWINERY twine in Blossom  to decorate around the card a few times and attach the button with. I LOVE this color combo- so summery and sweet, don't you think?  Oh, before I continue, I just wanted to thank everyone who visits daily and apologize for not getting very far through Google Reader this week.  If I haven't been to your blogs, I will- just CRAZY this past week!

Be sure to see the rest of my Ribbon Carousel peeps' lovely stitched creations today- start on the RCC blog and check out the blogs of:



That's it for me today- I'm taking tomorrow off too but will be back with previews from The Greeting Farm's amazing August RELEASE!  YAY!!!!!!!!!

This is such a gorgeous card! I really LOVE that balloon! I think I need it. Really, like if I don't buy one I might have super high BP or something and stroke out. And we can't have THAT so close to my wedding day! :p~~~
