I Love Hot Air Balloons

Hello Crafty Friends,
Thanks for stopping by. Went shopping this morning as planned, but didn't get too much (a new Cricut cartridge, some beads, and stick pins). I actually do not need anything and should use what I have, but I did see new paper and embellishments on display. Chalk Studio by MME looks fabulous!
This hot air balloon was a freebie at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. Lisa sure has wonderful files and they are SUPER easy to use.
Although I have never been in a hot air balloon before, I love the idea of peacefully floating through the clouds looking down at the land. Not quite sure if I would enjoy the ride since I don't care for heights when I am not strapped into a seat. Just the thought seems lovely!
Inside of card coordinates with outside.
Pink swirling gems, white faux stitching, inking around the edges, and a loving sentiment finish off the front of the shape card. 

Other Materials:
pink, brown, and white cardstock
pink swirling gems
K. Andrews stamp
pink ink
white gel pen
Creative Cards Cricut cartridge ~ base cut at 4 1/2"
Hope you find some crafting time!
My goal...finish a few projects on my table. I completed one this afternoon and have about three more I'd like to get done tonight.
Stay Creative,
