Angelina’s Balloons

As a child I remember rubbing a balloon on my hair to make the balloon static and sticking it on walls, on someone's back or anywhere that I could get it to stick. Of course my children did it too and in fact their Dad (Chris) still does it, I don’t think he will ever grow up ha ha!

Angelina’s Balloons from Mo’s Digital Pencil

I made an easel card with the image as I really didn’t know where I was going with it, I first punched out the heart on the card with the image and tied a bow around the top, knowing that it needed something else I matted it with blue card and then it sat there on my desk for a little while, I often do this, mainly because once I start colouring I get so carried away that I end up colouring several images up. So this was the one I played with a little until I was happy.

Oh wow...what a fun card! The colors are so playful.
And that adorable image was just added to my Mo's wish list! I think I may be addicted to her work. Is there a support group?
Hope you have a beautiful and blessed 2014.
