Melting on Monday

Happy Monday! And yes, we are melting here! It is over 35°C all the time and here in our rooms it is almost 38°C - I can't stay on the computer for long, so as long as it is this hot I won't be able to do a lot of blog-hopping. Can't wait to catch up when it is a bit cooler! And it seems that our computer isn't very happy about the heat either...
So I'll better be quick with my post! Here is a card I made for a little boy turning 2:


I really love how this card turned out! This month's challenge theme on the Hero Arts blog is "Food and Travel" - I hope a monkey travelling by balloons counts! The stamps are all Hero Arts, I used this and this and this set. That cute cloud paper is from Vinnie Pearce's digi kit "Toybox" that can be found here. The papers for the balloons are all October Afternoon.

Ha, and thanks to Kelly I just found out it will fit the Moxie Fab World "Fun and Cute" Challenge! I am glad that this Paper Crafts Special Issue is out now - it was difficult to keep the secret, but I have 3 cards published in the Card Style mag! And one is featuring one of my favorite Hero Arts stamp, the Starburst Lace!

Ok, I am busy preparing Alyssa's Birthday, so I'll better hurry!

Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Very cute. And, I hear you about the heat in Germany. I'm in Weiden and it is crazy to see all of the grass getting scorched. At least I didn't have to mow my lawn this week!

Adorable and colorful! I like the way you let the monkey's foot extend beyond the edge of the paper. Your entire blog is now bookmarked--great cards! Stop by my blog when the weather cools down.
