Growing in Unity Day 2


Hello again. Are you ready for day 2 ??? 
Celebrate Life


I recently went to a hot air ballon festival. It was amazing. That outing inspired me to make a card using the Celebrate Life stamp set. They are in the Itty Bitty collection. I used my copic markers to add color to the ballons. I used some enamel dot liquids on the front to add dimension and a couple of layers. Added a tag with the sentiment that comes with the ballon stamp. And there you have an easy card. 




Here are some pics from the festival.


 Night glow show.


I hope to one day be able to ride in one. Its on my bucket list !!

Hot air balloons make me happy. My former stamp "instructor" for lack of a better word, was also a hot air balloon operator, and she worked the hot air balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Great card!

Wow! Those hot air balloon photos are so dramatic and I love the fun card. I'm not one for heights so I prefer my hot air balloons stamped!
