Good morning! It is FINALLY the last day of school!!! Oh, I think we are the last kids in the country to get out of school!! To say that I am excited...well, I am!! I love having my people home--we are excited!! My kids are just thrilled. So, here is looking at couple quickly filled months of summer!!

I needed a quick little something the other day for a friend. I saw these fun images from Neat and Tangled in my stamp box and just needed to get them inky!!! I do love me some good polka dots!!

I used the punchinella stamp and versamark ink then heat embossed the image with white embossing powder. I masked off the image with post it tape, and then used distress ink and a blending tool for coloring in the image. I stamped the celebrate in black ink from  the just for you set. 
My balloons are from PTI, and are cut from my Maggie Holmes paper pad...love that stuff!!! I added a little bit of silver thread behind each balloon. I attached the strings just under the front panel, then attached the panel with foam adhesive to the card base. 

Love, love, love me some good stamps!! I am playing along with the Little Tangles current challenge, which is a sketch...a great starting point for any inspiration!!

Take care, see you tomorrow!!
