I haven't made a card for a challenge in a long time. I used to search out challenges and make cards to fit them but I haven't done that in a while. Yesterday when I was looking at different blogs to get some inspiration, I came across the Paper Players Challenge with the theme of "up up and away." With so many balloon stamps available, I decided to make this card.
What do you think?

Wow! I just checked on MDS Monday and my fall picture was chosen this week. I am honored.
Here are a few more cards that I made last weekend on our Girls Weekend:
This one uses the bundle found on page 11 on the Occasions Catalog - Celebrate Today. The DSP is found on page 12 - Birthday Bash. I decided to cut the DSP a little different for this card. I used Candy Dots next to the "birthday" tag. I forget to use those Candy Dots!!
This last card uses a stamp set that you can earn when you are a hostess. I don't usually order the hostess sets but I have ordered two of them this year! This one is called Hello Love (pg. 239) and I think these birds are just so cute! The other hostess set I have is a keeper - Bloom With Hope (pg 240).
I have been using the Ninja Blender that Ashley left with me to make all kinds of smoothies. If you have any good recipes, please share with me. I bought a lot of fruit and try different combinations every day. This morning I mixed up Cranberry Juice, frozen banana chunks, frozen Mixed Berries, a little fresh ginger, a handful of carrots and some Vanilla Yogurt. Sonny just shakes his head but it really was delicious! I took advantage of the mangos when they were on sale last week and bought five, cut them up and froze them. I usually throw a bit of kale in with my smoothie too. Friday, I made some fresh salsa with jalepenos, fresh tomatoes and spices. It was very good - even Sonny thought so! So, tell me what you have tried - either making them at home or buying them at Jamba Juice!
