Patchwork Hot Air Balloon


We have actually had some sun today - i won't speak too loudly as i'm sure it won't last, yesterday we took Whisper along the seafront for a walk, gee i've never seen it before, but beach huts that were permanently fixed, had been moved by the strong winds on Friday night. This week is half term, so as usual H is very busy, he has holiday club tomorrow, and then the other days he is going to a Science Show, Bird Watching, a Sports Camp and Friday we are going to 'Beaulieu Motor Museum, as H's school project this term is 'On The Move'.

Today's card is an image i bought, when i was a DT member for Ready Teddy Go, but never got round to using it : LOTV - 'Patchwork Hot Air Balloon', the papers are : LOTV - 'Bear Necessities', the sentiment is from : Sentiments 4 You, the clouds are : Whimsy Stamps - 'Cloud Die Set', i've distressed the clouds and the image with : Tim Holtz - 'Tumbled Glass', the brads are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Get Krafty'

Crafty Little Fairies - where the Challenge is 'Teddies'

Feeling Crafty - where Challenge No: 25 is 'Diecuts and / or Punches' - i went for dies Labels 8 and Clouds

We did get a hint of it over the weekend as well Sam, but this morning thick fog but could give way to something brighter.

A really sweet card and the tone on tone really works nicely, thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge.
