Sending Smiles

Claire from Waltzingmouse Stamps has something up her sleeve and I feel like a kid counting down the days until Christmas. The days always seem like months away, because the anticipation and excitement kept building, as my brother and I use to guess what Santa would have brought us. So, what does an anxious kid do to pass the time? Find distraction.

What better distraction then to play along with the next Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Check the deets out:

I've been meaning to send a RAK across the big pond to someone who has been unwell. And while recovering from my little surgery, I kind of purchase some new stamps to distract myself. I blame it on being under the influence of pain killers ;) So as soon as they arrived, I knew exactly which ones I'd use to cheer my friend up.
Sending Smiles Across the Miles
Stamps: Up, Up and Away, Polka Dot Basics (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Key Ingredient Kit - Petals & Paisley (Taylored Expressions); Basic Card Stock - White (Recollections)
Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko); Earth Elements - Creamy Caramel (Stamping Up!); Pigment Ink - Red (Recollections); Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Fresh Snow (Papertrey Ink); Momento - Summery Sky (Tsukineko)
Embellishments: Rustic Button Twine - Jute (Papertrey Ink); Steel Dies - Up, Up and Away, Cloud 1 & 2 Die Collection (Papertrey Ink)

I was such in an hurry to take a picture that I didn't realize my cloud trying to float off my card. I made sure to glue it down before I sent it across the ocean. Isn't it a little punny that I was sending a hot-air balloon via "Air Mail"? A little situational pun humor.

Totally fabulous. I know the friend will love it.

Between you and Belinda, I'm going to have to give in to the temptation of Waltzingmouse stamps.
