Hello Everyone,

I'm loving Mama Elephant's  new challenge found at Mama Elephant and Me!  Once I saw the inspiration I knew exactly what I wanted to do. First thing I saw were pompoms or is it really pompons?

I try to make at least ten cards because I have a lot of family and friends who like my cards.  I am totally into watercoloring right now and prepped my cards onto 7 mil laminated construction paper with basic painter's tape.

I also scribbled and dabbed some of Tim Holtz's distress inks on laminated watercolor paper scrap. 

I totally had an assembly line going on for sure. I love how the colors really went well together.

I used paper streamers and my quilling tool to make the pompons.

Cute, right?!  This stamp set, In My Heart, is inspired by Operation Write Home. 20 % of retail profits from the sale of this cute stamp set will be donated to Operation Write Home from 
June 15th to July 31st. 

I don't know which version I liked better. 

Hip Hip Hooray!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you liked it. Tomorrow you'll be seeing more Mama Elephant characters, like the pandas cheering us on!

Materials Used:
