Up... Up... Up.. and AWAY!

Hello all you crafters!

Boy oh boy... I have sure been on a role with all my crafty creativeness lately.  Let's all hope this streak continues for a long time.  I greatly enjoy my time with crafting and I feel it lifts my spirits to do something I love!  Plus, with all the cards I make it just means I get to lift someone else's spirit and hopefully put a smile on their face so it is a win win!

I had this vision for a card when I saw this SVG set at Lettering Delights, found here, and knew I had to have it!  Their is just something about hot air balloons that always catch my eye.  It was one of my favorite things to watch in Park City, UT growing up!  They sure are awesome!

I just can't decide yet on what I am going to use this card for so I have not finished the sentiment.  But you will get the idea.

This card opens as a tri-fold kind of card.  Isn't is so cute?  It kind of reminded me of my childhood watching the hot air balloons fly up over the mountains!  Awesome!

Another view of the card all closed up and looking cute!  Should we see what it looks like as you open it up?

Here we go... Let's see what the inside looks like!

Ta Da!  Look how cool!  Flying high with happy cheerful carefreeness!

Doesn't that hot air balloon just make you smile? 
I love the colors together!

I am excited to pick someone special to give this too.  Maybe that will give me the inspiration on what the rest of the sentiment should be...  hee hee!

Thank you all so much for reading my blog and leaving all the crafty love in my comments!  That is the one thing that gets me excited about blogging my crafts!  You are all so wonderful!

I used a 4.5" x 5.0" rectangle base and then welded the mountain shape and the little rectangle shape to each side.
My hot air balloon is 3.5" x 4.760"
My trees all measure 2"-3"
I used a Paper Trey Ink Paper and a lot of scraps for this card.  (Need to use up those scraps)
I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink to ink the edges of the balloon and the top of the mountain.
I used this font from lettering delights found here
