Flying high!

I am one of those people who makes cards but never seems to have cards ready for special occasions such as family birthdays!  I am horrible at making cards when they *need* to be made.  Seeing that I am a procrastinator I ran into that exact situation today.  It's my father-in-laws birthday and we're headed to his party later this afternoon but of course since I procrastinate I had to get my butt in gear this morning and make him a card.  I wanted something simple with little piecing together.  Thankfully I have the perfect machine to help me with that!





I used the print and cut feature in Silhouette Studio to make the hot air balloon.  The balloon came from Lettering Delight's Around the World graphic set.  I found the clouds in the MTC gallery.  The sentiment comes from the My Thoughts Exactly Under the Sea stamp set.  I used Tim Holtz' Tumbled Glass distress ink to stamp the sentiment.  I used the Sizzix Plaid and Snowflake embossing folder to emboss the basket of the hot air balloon.  Another super awesome tool I used was the Crop-a-dile to set the eyelets.  What would I do without all these super cool tools!?

Did I ever mention how much I adore my Silhouette?

I love your balloon! I LOVE that you used print and cut, I'm so envious, I love how all the color choices are right there. The stamps are simply the best:)
