It is Balloon…For TSOT358 and JUGS430


First let me explain the title…some of you out there will know this, and the younger generation will have no idea what I am talking about!

Do you remember the Comedy Series F Troop?

At one point an air filled balloon passes over the Fort and

the friendly Indians point up and say, in the

broken accent of the day…It is Balloon!

Mr Hubster and I joke about this almost every time we see a balloon of any type!

On to Today’s Card!

I combined a Sketch Challenge with a Word Challenge…


Here is the Word Challenge from JUGS #430

Here is the Sketch Challenge from TSOT #358


TSOT 358-Flower Power

I had so many ideas for this sketch…all didn’t translate well, from my mind to paper!

Then I SAW the Balloons and those circles looked like balloons to me!

I ran with that…after several tries, I landed this Card!


Here is my Card!




At first I tried to put the words on the card front, but they didn’t look right with the balloons, no matter how many times I tried the sketch, even turning the sketch!

I then had an idea…to put the Wish on the inside of the Card!

Here is the inside of my Card!


Love it!


Of Course, I had to make an envelope to match!!!


Overall I am very happy with the turnout!

  1. Crushing over all the delightful balloons you created for both your card and envelope! And yes, I have fond memories of F-Troop (and Gilligan’s Island, Hogan’s Heroes…! Guess I’m ‘dating’ myself too! Thrilled that you shared your creativity in the JUGS gallery!
