'Flying High!'

Oh I can't believe my card is 7 days late, how bad is that? I just hope I don't get the sack lol! I'm sure Shaz my boss over at Sparkles Monthly will forgive me.
Well as you have guessed my card was due on the 15th & I just totally forgot about it until one of the girls mentioned the date. Bad thing about realising I had forgot was we were on our hols, so I couldn't do anything until today. But I did enjoy colouring this cutie!

This month over at 'Sparkles Monthly' we have a fab theme for you to follow

'UP, UP & AWAY!'

your creation must have balloons on, either hot air or party!


I have had this stamp for ages & never inked him up. I decided to do lots of decoupage making him a bit more dimensional!
