Up, Up and Away!!!

Hi Lovelies....

How're you all doing?  If you're in the UK like me, I hope you've been able to enjoy the sunshine and warmth we've been having this week...  seems we've skipped Spring and gone straight to Summer!

And talking of summer...  I love seeing hot air balloons in the sky..  so this image is perfect for me for this week.  It's for our Bellarific Friday - and we have used another stamp from the Stamp of the Month section - mine is Ramona and Teddy in a Balloon..

I went for another shaker card and used Distress Inks for my cloud background.. before adding the acetate and frame - complete with lots of lovely sequins of course.   After colouring the balloon, I adhered it with 3D foam pads to the acetate.  My lovely man provided the clever sentiment - which I thought was very apt for this image!
