Up Up and Away!

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday post for Just Us Girls.
I'm Hosting Word Week and chose something 
that we would all like to do especially with
restrictions and lock downs abounding.
Welcome to our August Guest - Lisa Elton.

I decided that a hot air balloon ride would be
a great adventure - just don't think I could do it.
Where will your travels take you?

I'm still on the recovery road with my new knee
so CAS has been my go to of late.
My background was found in my bits box
and used SU Rich Razzleberry, Hello Honey and
Tim Holtz Antique Bronze Spray on photo paper
buffered with a paper towel.
Thought it looked like a golden sunset.
Simply added my hot air balloons.
Don't know where the stamps came from as a friend
gave them to me quite a long time ago.
They were inked with VersaFine Clair Fallen Leaves
Sentiment is from retired SU Build a Bouquet.
Attached to cream card base.

Pop over and see what Lisa and the Team 
created with the Travel Theme.
Join us and you could be our Chic of the Week
and in the running for Guest in October.

Thanks for dropping in.

Perfect sunset colours Ina and I adore the 'old style' balloons they make for a beautiful card design!

Such a very cool background to your fun balloons!

Looks like we were thinking the same this week! However, mine was much more basic than this beautiful card! That background is incredible!

Wouldn't that be an amazing sunset to see from the air! This is beautiful Ina. So happy to be guesting with you girls this month!

WOW! The rich, deep background is perfect for your balloons! I'm afraid of heights, yet fascinated by hot air balloons. Your card makes me smile! Thank you for a fabulous challenge theme!

What a glorious and rich sunset background and the balloons look perfect with it. Fabulous card Ina x.

Bobby said...

Backgrounds like that always intrigue me, Ina. It looks gorgeous with the silhouetted balloons. I went on a ride once on my 50th birthday and would go again in a heartbeat.
