Hello everyone!! I am so excited to be a part of CASology's 5th anniversary celebration!! I can't believe that CASology has been offering up amazing challenges for 5 years!! But time flies when you are having fun, right??? I will never forget being contacted by Melissa early in 2012 about being part of the design team she was putting together for a new challenge blog that was going to be all about clean and simple. Since I love clean and simple it didn't take me long to email Melissa back to say yes to her offer and for the first year and a half of the challenge I was on the design team. It was one of the best
times of my crafting life! So when Melissa contacted me about being a part of the celebration I had to say yes, again!! All the fun starts on the CASology blog. If you came from CASology design team member Joyce's blog then you are on the right track. If not head over to the CASology blog for a list of all the hop participants. The cue word for this challenge is appropriately balloon. For my card I used the super fun Essentials by Ellen Up the Happy stamp set along with the matching dies. I heat embossed red, aqua and pink cardstock with white embossing powder them and then die cut the balloons with the matching die. The same thing was done for the clouds as well. I then adhered the balloons and the clouds and added the balloon strings and the sentiment.
To be eligible for the CASology prize, participants must comment on all stops included on the hop + link up a BALLOON themed card to the gallery. Winner will be selected randomly using random.org.
Winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 1.

When I saw the pin-sights challenge inspiration board I knew it would be perfect to use to create my card for CASology... just look at those fun colors and images! They just say balloons to me!
Have a wonderful day and happy hopping!!

Balloons aren't just for kids anymore. Even though I'm not a kid but look like one I still love balloons. I love to go to a parade or a birthday party and see all the balloons and I love the colorful balloons on your card. I also love the sentiment. I don't have a die cutter so I can't duplicate your card but I am glad i got to see it. I am also glad to be doing this blog hop so I can have the chance to win something from a ton of people I've never even heard of. I am going to be doing a lot of looking and bookmarking!
