Take Flight..

Hi there! Well, did you see Harry Potter last night??? Ava and I went to the midnight showing ant it was FABULOUS!!!! We waited outside in a line that wrapped around the building for about 2 hours before they finally let us in about 11. All 14 screens were showing it and it was a really cool atmosphere! The movie itself? It shot straight to the top for me as far as ranking the movies of the series. It was just excellent. No spoilers here, though, so let's move on. I could only get 3 hours of sleep after the movie, so I was up bright and early this morning. I decided to make a few cards. Not for any challenges - just cards. :) 


This one was really fun to make. I am patterned paper addict...even bought a bunch in my sleep from Two Peas last week (long story...lol), so I love to mix and match the patterns in the paper pack to see which ones work best with each other. Today I used the Out of the Blue (Lime Twist) from MME. 




I combined that with Up, UP, and Away and Happy Trails from Papertrey. Well, I need to get some coffee down my throat because I'm taking Ava and one of her friends up to the Smokies for the weekend and we need to get moving. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!! Oh, and by the way - Ava had a really great time at camp. Made new friends and was really happy she went. Her skin didn't fare too well, but that's okay. Thanks for your emails and comments and well wishes for both Ava AND me...lol.

I don't know how many times I have written and said this is my favorite card from you, but this is my new favorite! I love that patterned paper and the way you folded the end up on the bottom. Great mix of stamp sets. Really, really creative, and on 3 hours of sleep. You should stay up more often!

Keva.......I love this card. That fold at the bottom is just awesome giving way to a peek of the same PP as your balloon. Totally love it. I could never make something like this on 3 hours of sleep. You go, girl!

Keva, love your card. I'm not sure which part is my favorite... the colors or the circle with the ballons or red sentiment with the bling... I guess just all of it.

Love it! And I'm so mad I'm not seeing Harry Potter tonight. But I went to a rainy funeral and drove something like 9 hours and don't want to be sleepy during the show...
