Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Hello!  Last week the Casology Blog had a challenge called 'Up'.  This was suppose to be my submission, but I couldn't finish it in time for the deadline.  Such is my life.  That is why I don't play challenges too often.  

To make my card, I used an image from Crafty Secrets called 'Little Boy'.  I created my own 'sky' by using an MFT Cloud Die and sponging around the edges.  Then I created my own sentiment on the computer and used the same die to cut the cloud shape for the sentiment.  The images were stamped, then cut out and popped up on dimensionals.  The kite was paper pieced.

Were expecting another Winter Storm here in Northern Wisconsin, and my area is getting an ice storm!  UGH!  Will this winter ever end and Spring arrive?  It will be another terrifying drive to work again in the morning.  This was a fun card to make as I long, wish, and hope for Spring.

Have a great day! Amy
