Paper Hugs are so SWEET!

So I haven't put this True Love Stamp set away since the day I took it from the shipping box...and no, not because I'm too lazy to tidy up! Once again, CTMH has made an Operation Smile benefit stamp set that's so cute I can't even stand it. Like this stamp needs to live on it's own block on my desk and go onto the back of every card I ever make. It's just that sweet.
Today is Monday, so there's a fresh new Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge sketch to inspire! I paper pieced a card background out of the last little bits of Calypso I have left. I just finished my version of a Calypso scrapbooking kit this weekend, and I'm trying so hard not to go back and get more of this happy paper packet that's retiring in just about a week. I literally don't even have a 6x6 worth of scraps left at this point, so I guess I used it up well! 
I colored the little boy's face with Shin Han markers, but paper pieced his shirt and the balloons with tiny scraps of Calypso paper. I'm even going to actually MAIL this card, and if you know me, keep an eye on the sky (in case the pigs actually fly). Pop over to Atlantic Hearts to check out the sketch and join the fun!
