Let Your Dreams Take Flight, a new Lily Boo card

Another Friday rolls around!
I'm happy to report that my new printhead arrived safe and sound and my printing is perfection! So I can make lots of new cards....if I could just find the time!LOL
Also my fabulous Martha Stewart Loops punches arrived on Wednesday and I love them!!!
Thanks again to Terry at More Than Ink for his super service.
We had a car scare yesterday. We had packed a picnic and were all in the car waiting to go out. I got in and turned the key...click, click, click and no starting :(
Oh no, we only have one car and it is 8 years old (but it is paid for :))and with visitors here it is needed. Hubby thought it could be the battery (that was 3 years old this month)so when he got home from work we borrowed the neighbors car (thanks Jenny!)and headed to Walmart. The sticker on the battery was 8/06 and it had a 3 year replacement warranty on it and we wee delighted to find that Walmart stood behind it completely and we walked out with a free brand new battery! All the way home we prayed it was the problem and hoped it would work. 10 minutes later, the key turned and .....roar the engine came to life and we were back in the driving seat!!! So a day that started badly ended much better.
To top it off we had a movie from the Redbox and watched Hannah Montana the Movie outside on the protector!
Now I've updated on my week I'm sure you're waiting for the new card.
This one covers 7 challenges an features one of the wonderful new Boy Circle images from Lily Boo (I'll link below)
I started with the sketch from PaperPlay
then I added a color combo of Green Galore, Soft Suede and Whisper White from ScrapMasters
Cute Card Thursday had a theme of Lazy Dayz and 3 Clovers wanted us to use Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Finally I added embellishments to fit ABC Challenge who wanted buttons, Whimsy Stamps who wanted Ribbons and Crafty Creations who wanted us to use Tags.



I printed out the fabulous image from Lily Boo's Boutique on Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored him with Copic's. I cut him with a QK nesting flower (that I think looks more like a scallop circle) and then matted the whole thing on another circle. The dp is DCWV The Green Stack and the buttons are The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby




The inside is more dp and a matching circle message mat.



I just wanted to give a close up of this cute little guy!
This is the last weekend before school starts on Monday so I'm hoping we can fill it with fun things!
Have a great weekend!
Katie
