Isn't this little kitty cute! I'm going to call it a he, so he is a Penny Black Stamp. This weeks inspiration photo at Papercraft Star featured several hot air balloons and some beautiful muted pink, browns, and blues. At least that's what I saw. :) It never ceases to amaze me at just how different each one of us can interpret the same scene.
The October Afternoon paper on the left is a map of London so it kind of looks like kitty is flying over the city with his balloons! Wish I could fly over there. Sigh! There's so much incredible history to be explored in the British Isles. Just the thought of all those old castles and beautiful landscapes gets my heart jumping.
This card made me happy, even if I can't go to London. The colors are my favorites and I feel like I'm pushing just a little bit out of the creativity bounds that I call normal. I think I'm growing, at least I hope I am. I know that I'm getting a LOT faster at making a card. :) Here's the ingredient list for my little cat's flying adventure.
