Hang In There

"Hang in There" is another great "go-to" expression to put on the front of a card, leaving the inside to finish the sentiment like:
.....another birthday is coming
.....Spring is almost here
.....Physical Therapy is almost over
.....the weekend is almost here

The more manly one is being sent to my in-law.  I'm leaving the more girlie one without a comment for future use.  Yup, another Doodle Pantry image called Balloon Ants. ( I used the pre-colored balloon, but colored the ants with copics.) I cropped off the last ant to have a larger image for the card.  My inspiration comes from Deloris at Stamping at the Lake.  She's great at these circle easel cards.  I don't find them easy, take more paper than usual, but I must admit, they make the card interesting than the standard A2 card all the time.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such great comments. Lately I am a very sporadic blogger and card maker.
    These Doodle Pantry ants are adorable.
    I wonder if you could tell me the size of your circle? Thanks.

  6. p.s.

    The Nellie Snellen folders were on Ectasy Craft site before Christmas for about $7.50. Then you mentioned the punches. Oh my what a plethora of goodies on the Nellie Snellen site!!!!Just made my mouth water. lol
    The flower one that caught my eye was a rounded petal one and with the second die putting lines in it. Gorgeous.

  7. Adorable and love the paper pics. Never thought of cutting off some of the ants! Great idea. And how did you use the colored balloon yet have the ants to color?

  8. Omg, they are adorable! Love the fun ants and the great coloring combinations.

  9. You did a fantastic job creating a circle easel card. Perfect layout and design. Love how this turned out -- the sentiment is perfect with it!

  10. Darling love these little ants. You do a fab job of making them into a card. I love this easel card.

  11. Delightful cards,both of them. I have not made a circle card for quite a while, don't know why as they are usually quite wonderful once made up. Love yours!
