An unexpected colorway


Operation Write Home has a balloon tutorial up right now that showcases the Hero Arts Happy Birthday Set Balloon stamp. They allow for other balloon stamps to be used as well.

Here’s mine.

I really don’t know how I came to this bright colorway. I started with a vintage Comotion balloon stamp that I picked up at Scrap DC. The sentiment is from a Studio G Alison Wong set. Wausau Fleck cardstock front, magenta and orange scraps from stash, colored with neon Crayola twistables, embroidery floss bow.

Imagine my surprise when I looked at Moxie Fab World and saw their Tuesday Trigger.

Hello awesome colorway! My OWH balloon card totally works with this as a starting point but I created a second card that uses pink, purple and orange.

Wausau Fleck cardstock front, paper is DCWV I believe – it was a thrift stash find. Heart and XO stamp are from TPC Studio Hugs and Kisses Set.

This card also works for the Operation Write Home Midweek Challenge – Love.

Tom Hanks does a Nerdist Podcast


The guys at Nerdist.com sent Tom Hanks a typewriter with a note, asking him to do a podcast. This is how Tom responded –

The podcast is amazing. http://www.nerdist.com/2012/10/nerdist-podcast-tom-hanks/ He comes off as the best guy ever to hang out with. I was especially thrilled with talk of That Thing you Do.
