TCPTues214 - Good Times

My infatuation with the Simple Stories Summer Fresh collection is stronger than ever. Here's my latest creation, for TCP Tuesday Challenge #214. This week, Susan is hosting, and the theme is You Blow Me Away. Use any stamp that could be "taken by the wind" or that you could blow on, along with either the Cloud Border or Pinwheel die.

I used the adorable hot air balloon from Away We Go, paper pieced the balloon, basket, and bunny's nose, then colored the bunny and gifts with Copics. The clouds were done with the Clouds Border CutUps die, and I cut out the sun from one of the Summer Fresh paper elements.

Here's all the swanky details on how YOU can play along!:

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on Alma's Blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keywordTCPTUES214 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp/die, like this week)
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

This is so adorable! Love the colors/papers, the string, the clouds and sun, how you did the sentiment, and the adhesive crystals. So perfect!
