MFT are one of my 3 most favourite stamp & die brands in the universe and when ‘Up In the Air’ was released I HAD to have it as soon as soon as humanly possible.  I mean, who is not bowled over by those cute critters peeking over the edge of the balloon – tooo sweet!

IMG_0057This week’s Simon Says Stamp challenge and a little extra time due to a Bank Holiday day here spurred me on to take the plunge and make a card with it.

I embossed a piece of blue card with a cloud folder and cut some spotty hills for the balloons to fly over.  I couldn’t afford to get the dies (oh my they’re expensive for this stamp set!) so fussy cut the elements out.  The stitched frame has been clear embossed to add a little gloss.  The images have been coloured with copics and I added some white accents to the big ballon, flags and ted and ellie.

IMG_0056.JPGI’ve been inspired to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp – Monday Challenge: The Great Outdoors
Creatalicious Challenge –  Anything Goes
Stamping Sensation – Anything Goes

It would have been cool to see some cute faces like these looking down at me when the balloons went over on the recent balloon race.  Although maybe that would have been a bit scary to have a bear and an elephant staring down at me…..yes, second thoughts…..

Thanks for looking
