Here's a happy go lucky card for you today.  The inspriation for this came out of the Paper Crafts special issue Card Creations Favorite Occasions vol 2.  I LOVE this specialty issue.  It has so many wonderful cards to draw inspriation from.  I have multiple pages dog-eared to refer to.  So the original card came from page 16 called Hey Buddy.  The original used a plane carrying a message behind but I had to improvise.

The base of this card is SU celery and then its layered with some OLD dcwv papers from who knows where I've had it so long.  It has a greenish/blue hue but it doesn't show well in this pic.  I then added the white panel and cut the trees and grass and cloud from the cricut cart Straight from the Nest.  All the cuts were either 1 1/4 in or 1 1/2 in.  I stamped the balloon from Verve's up and away set and then stamped it a second time on some dp and cut it out adding pop dots to it.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from TPC Studios that I punched out with the SU's oval punches. 

I hope this put a smile on your face.  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget you still have a chance at some blog candy.  Check out my post from Jan 3rd for you chance to win.
