Jacksonbelle Tuesday -Polka dots!

Hi everyone! It's Tuesday and time for another Jacksonbelle challenge. This week it's all about POLKA DOTS. Yeah baby, I can do that!! You are all welcome to play along -as usual if you don't need to have JBelle supplies to play, but if you don't have any, you can check out the store and see if anything strikes your fancy. You can use the keyword JBE055 if you upload to SCS or PCP.

For my card, I used some of the yummy Pink Paislee designer paper with polka dots!! The papers I have are from the Sweet Cakes line -I sooo love all the orange tones. You know, in looking at my card last week, I used the SAME paper! I guess it shows I really do love it. LOL! Some of the Pink Paislee is out of stock right now, but send Lindsey an email if you want her to order more, she is happy to do it.

The sketch I used is this week's Mojo Monday week 88. Boy, Julee sure can design sketches!! The awesome hot air balloon image is from the newly released Up Up and Away and the sentiment is from Dare to be You. I outlined the clouds with a light blue copic marker and the striped ribbon is May Arts and a perfect match to Bashful Blue. Just about everything on this card is on dimensionals. I love the happy feel to this card! It's almost like the balloon and clouds are flying away.

I also wanted to mention that this Mojo Monday sketch is doubling for a sketch challenge in the much talked about Stampin' Out Alzheimer's (SOA) event. A small donation (see link in the Mojo Monday blog sidebar) gets you access to this week-long virtual stamping event, which has all sorts of challenges and chances to win some fabulous prizes. All proceeds from this event will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association. Our own Verve Diva, Jen Tapler, founded this event. Her dad has been rapidly progressing through the stages of Alzheimer's. So if you have a few dollars to spare, please particpate in this fundraiser. Not only can you win some fabulous prizes, but you can make a DIFFERENCE!

Be sure to stop by the other DT blogs for their polka dotted goodness.
