I'm really looking forward to a Sunday off this week. I've had a demos every Sunday for the past few weeks which were great but it'll be nice to have family time, especially as it's Mother's Day.
The Challenge this week was set by Svenja who asked for a sky or flight themed card. I immediately thought about hot air balloons as they seem so peaceful floating in the air and I'd love to go on one.
I'd bought a preloved clouds embossing folder a while back that I was itching to use and then I realised I didn't have either a hot air balloon die or a stamp so I improvised, as you do! I used a circle die for the balloon and cut a basket shape out which I then covered with twine. I also got to use the brand new First Edition alphabet dies which are fab!
For more inspirational makes take a look at the Daring Cardmakers Blog and join in with the challenge!
Enjoy your weekend,
