UP UP AND AWAY WITH THE PALS

This card uses the stamp set Up, Up and Away.  It reminds me of all the hot air balloons we often see where we live.  I always chuckle about our dog Millie (now deceased) and her fear of hot air balloons.  She would beg and beg for walks but if there was a hot air balloon in sight, she would drag me back home with her tail between her legs.  She was petrified of them!  They are noisy when they are low, and she was always sensitive to sound.

I used the Pals Paper Arts Sketch #129 and a few new items from the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog including Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, Riding Hood Red 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon, and Adorning Accents Edgelits Die and Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Oh my, it has taken me a few minutes to look at all the beautiful treatments on this card. I love them all. The embossing, the Adorning Accents EF as hills, the ribbon, the paper piecing combine to make one gorgeous card.

I love this card! I recognize the hills from the winning card at the PHX Regional. After I saw your pics from reg I realized there were so many people there I wish I had met - you being one of them. I've followed your blog and love your work. I'm going to Di's Spring Fling, and will have a Melon Mambo t-shirt on that says "STAMP, SCRAP, SHARE". Say hey if you're there and remember!
