I like Hot Air Balloons. Enjoy seeing & photographing the Hot Air Balloons at the Plano Balloon Festival held annually in Sept. So, I used a new stamp & die set from taylored expressions to make my card.

I made it. I got my card done on time. Yay!!! I hope to be able to take part in the others if I can. There is a lot to do today. Thanks for the invite to play alone. Edwina Brown

Debi - is that because you noticed the pig is holding onto a parachute and not a balloon!! I got so excited when I saw it that it didn't register until it posted that it wasn't a balloon! But I'm glad you ladies can follow directions!! They all look AWESOME.

Howdy Kathy - I received this Hot Air Balloon die cut from a win and this is my first time using it - I think it worked out well for this challenge - and of course, I had to add Charlie and the bird to a hot air balloon - thanks for challenge #2.:)

Will be back for Challenge #3

Kathy - regarding the scallop edge on my card - I wish I could say "Oh, I made that myself" - HA! It is a Sizzix Card Shape die cut - it creates the entire card! I forgot I had this die cut. I purchased it for challenges that require a shape - hello to me - wake up - anyway - I cut the paper along with the cardstock and then glued the paper on top of the front of the card. I just Love this die cut - and I will be using it more often now that I remembered I had it. I also purchased it on CLEARANCE at the Sizzix site last year - I think I got it for around $10 or so- a great investment. :)

Hi Everyone! I had a lot of fun playing along on challenge #1 and #2, but unfortunately I have a family obligation this evening and I think this is where I'll have to stop with CiS's challenges. Or maybe I can squeeze one more in later, I can see it now, I'll be fixing my hair with one hand and coloring with the other.

Had I realized it was NSD I would have cancelled before today, I really don't want to go now :(

Have a great day!

Patiently waiting for challenge #3 to be posted. I have the scalloped die cut Gail has and have forgotten to use it and will have to remember to put it to use now.

The challenge now as of 2:10pm CT indicates there is 29 more mins left to enter. Thought it was to end at 2pm. What's up with that? Yes, I'm trying to be patient and hear that challenge #3 has been posted.
