Up Up and Away

Hi girls. I am afraid I didn't have a card yesterday but I have had a bad couple of days. I appreciate that some of you have still called in and left messages. They are all much appreciated.
I got quite a few complimentary comments about my craftroom the other day. It's the first time I've done the Wednesday thing and I will give it a go again sometime. I love looking at everybody else's workspaces.
I made this card a bit plainer than my normal girly style because if I'm honest I was lacking in energy. The "papers" are two shades of Bazzil Spot card and the image is in fact a hand drawn copy of a Papertray Ink stamp I saw some time ago. I drew it on a background of the Hero Arts Design Block called "Clouds". The buttons, ribbon and gems are all from my stash.
I hope you like this card and I would love to read any comments you may have time to leave for me.
I hope you all have a great day and that everything you do is a success. Take care.


  1. I love the card Fiona - it makes a change to do something different and you have done it well. I love the idea of the buttons as balloons.
    My dad went up in a balloon last year and had a crash landing lol! Memorable!
    Hope you feel a little better tomorrow
