Floating on Air

Vintage hot air balloons are oh la la trendy. I have always been a lover of them.  I even live in an area that is known for them.  There is a big local balloon event  held near us each summer. You can even have one land next to your house....  it happened to us awhile back. LOL.
This week, I did something different and made little balloon notecards for a friend. They are tres simple with a French toille background paper and balloon images, which I already had in my stash. Each one was stamped  with a different sentiment.  I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape, ombre ribbon , netting (of course like on the balloon) and a bit of bling.  I also made a matching gift box that says "Thinking of you", and I was "C'est fini". Over at Moxie fab world  there is a  "Card sets challenge" for note cards, so this is my entry.

Another reason to be floating on air is that dear Cindy at Whimsical  Musings Magazine did a feature on my work for her excursion into the beautiful week. Its a wonderful weekly online magazine for those who enjoy art, repurposing, and decorating. Drop by and take a look.
Till next time.
Take care, gerri
