'Up, Up and Away! '

Good Morning everyone. Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Our latest challenge 'Up, Up and Away! ' has been chosen by our leader Carol.  The challenge last time, chosen by Jocelyn was, ' Vintage Love ', so it was a great opportunity for you to create some Vintage Valentines. We had some interesting designs too. Thank you to those who took part. Don't forget if you don't have a blog you can still enter via our face book page. The winner of ' Vintage Love' will be up on the blog next week. As we've decided not to make you wait so long to see who's won. Just a reminder too that there's always a lovely prize on offer for the winner, donated by the design team .
Enough of my waffle and on to my inspiration for you this time.

The CD I've used for the background is one of  Debbie Moore's , ' Elegant Moments '. It from the insert section and I felt it would make the perfect background for my hot air balloon. I loved the fact it had sailing boats on it too to add extra interest to the scene. The balloon is a die cut using multi-coloured card. The sentiment was 'googled'. So a simple CAS card from me this time. It makes a change from my love of different folds!!

As always the rules of the challenge are simple....use a CD somewhere on your creation and tell us which one you've used.....You can make anything you wish, so it doesn't have to be a card, it could be ATCs, altered books, scrapbook page etc. etc. Anything really as long as you've used a CD somewhere on your project. For more inspiration pop over to CD Sunday (link in sidebar) to see what the rest of the team have created.

Thank you for visiting and if you've left a comment double thanks as they are always appreciated.

Have a good week and I look forward to visiting you soon.


  1. Hi Wynn. Love your card. I too have this balloon die which I have found is a perfect size for scenes like the one you have chosen. As you say your sailing boats are just perfect for composition.

  2. Your card makes me long for summer Wynn, love the scene you created

  3. That insert was just crying out to be used as the background for a scene - I'm always looking for the perfect sky for projects. Love the card Wynn.

  4. Fabulous card for a male, I like your detail with the sailing ships with the balloon.
    A card that make you feel you want to go and join in.

  5. I think inserts often make great backgrounds and this one is perfect for your lovely card. It's exactly the right size for that beautiful balloon

  6. A great card Wynn. I think I'd rather be on one of the boats than in the balloon! A fab male card and great use of the backing paper.
