Get Your Friday Mashup On.....

Goodness, its the last Friday in February! Where the heck is time going? Seems like we were just welcoming in the New Year and now March is right around the corner. Time needs to slow down!

Of course being Friday that means its time for another Friday Mashup and this week our challenge comes from our fearless leader Holly. Her challenge definitely made me think a bit because its really not things I do a whole lot. So whats the challenge you ask?
  1. Make a project using the "Kissing Technique".
  2. Or Make a "Round" project.
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Round project featuring the Kissing Technique".
Seems pretty easy right? Ha! Maybe its just me but I had a hard time with the round portion of the project. I ended up using my Cricut cartridge "Joys of the Season" to cut a round ornament card, and I just cut the top portion of the card off to get a circle. The circle made me think of the sky for some reason(dont ask, I have no idea, LOL) and so I went with the set Up, Up & Away for hot air balloons floating through the sky. I used some So Saffron ribbon tied in a bow at the top so the card could be hung as a decoration if desired. The kissing technique was done on the hot air ballons with So Saffron and Wild Wasabi.

  1. I must have baby on the brain because my first thought was a bib! Ugh. I am going to have mush in my head by the time July gets here. I love how fun this one is. I love the hot air balloons; perhaps I need those to go with my kites! :)

  2. I love this!! Feels like spring! The colors are fresh, and the balloons make me smile! One of my dreams is to take a hot air balloon ride...may have to settle for stamps! ;-)

  3. Hi Lisa, Great light and cheery card you've got there with your kissed balloons.

  4. This is just wonderful. I love round cards but never make them as they never turn out looking round.

  5. Love these well worn balloons! That's another set I thought of using... great choice! :)
