Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:
I have been wanting to play around with this new set I got with my first big order from the new Stampin Up catalog called "Up, Up & Away". I loved it right away when I saw it and haven't had a chance to play with it so today was the day!
I love hot air balloons, I have never rode in one but I have saw some up close. The first vacation that my DH and I took after we were married, almost 35 years ago, was to Colorado. DH was raised there and he wanted to show me around. I have to say I love Colorado, the mountains, the sites, the smells, the fresh air and beautiful rivers. On that vacation we spent most of our time camping, yes we were hippies, LOL!!!! We would see alot of the sites and visit some of his family and friends during the day and at night we stayed in various campgrounds. We were in and around Denver, Colorado Springs and Golden, DH is from Arvada, which is outside of Denver. One early morning we were awaken to some very loud swooshing sounds, when we came out of our tents we saw hundreds of beautiful, colorful hot air balloons launching. It was a spectacular site and one of my fondest memories of that trip. I also sprained my ankle so bad I couldn't walk for days on that trip but that is another story!!
This card is for my DH's birthday, next month and inside there will be tickets for us to take a hot air balloon ride, hopefully!
The base of the card is real red and the DS paper I used is from the Stampin' Up Big Top Birthday paper pack. It is a bright one and not my usual style, but I have dreamed of making DH this card every since I first saw this set.
I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:
