Up The Happy!

Good morning - and what a dull and dreary one at that.....   I know, what a cheerful greeting right? Lol - well it has been an unusually chilly spring here - and I have been freezing for weeks - oh dear poor poor me :)

Inspired by All the Little Things has a cute photo this week which cheers me right up!

I LOVE airplanes - not jets (notta, no, nope) just airplanes.  My hubby has owned two during our married life, a PA-11 and a J-3 Cub, and his father was an airplane enthusiast, so airplanes sort of came with the marriage haha.

However I didn't use an airplane on my card - weird I know.  I acquired some new stamps - knock me over! - and I wanted to ink them up and why the heck not?

Ellen Hutson has a great line of product - Essentials by Ellen- they have never been on my radar and now I am wondering - why the heck not? (did I say that already...) AND they come already in their own plastic storage envelope - I didn't have to get my little printing machine out or anything - perfectly perfect in every way!

I used the Up the Happy stamp set and created my card.

I die cut a small hill out of patterned paper and stamped the super fun sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.....shoulda/wish I had used my Misti gah! I stamped several balloon images from coloured cardstock, fussy cut them and made a glaggle (my word) of balloons.  I stamped the cute clouds and added a few hearts.

After trimming down my card panel, I popped it up onto another cardstock panel and added some washi tape down the edges - cute right?!

Go and have a fabulous day - and Up the Happy!!
