Well, I’m very late in posting my Valentines. We had an ice storm here in the Willamette Valley on February 12th (freezing rain that accumulated to over an inch on everything) that caused lots of tree and power line damage. Our power was out for almost 8 days and I had very spotty internet access, so I didn’t even try to post anything during that time. I’m still catching up on things and adjusting to being able to turn on real lights! We were very fortunate here compared to many across the country who had much worse circumstances. But we did enjoy Valentine’s Day under different conditions with a grilled dinner!
So now on to the card. I have always loved hot air balloons and as soon as I saw this die set at our local store, I had to have it! I inked the background with Distress ink and inked some additional paper a little darker to use to die cut the LOVE sentiment. The little clouds were part of the Heart Air Balloon die set, so I cut some of those for the sky. Once I assembled the balloon and inserted cat 😉 I popped it up so it would look like it was floating. I colored the kitties with Copic markers in the colors of our two cats (Max in the balloon and Sissy on the ground). They are not exactly in love in real life, but we’ll just go for that effect for purposes of the Valentine! I really had fun making and giving this card (I made one for my husband and one for my son). Thanks for stopping by. Better late than never!
