A chance to win this digi image!

Hey there!  I am happy the week is halfway through because I am so ready  for Friday.  I recently looked at taking a ride in a hot air balloon, but then someone told me the noise level might be too much for my daughter since she dislikes loud noises.  Anyone tried this?  
Today I have my card for Crafty Creations.  The challenge is "All Stitched Up" with the focus on stitching or a funny sentiment that leaves you in stitches.  I couldn't come up with a clever line when creating this card.  I tried  but my brain was not working with me.  So instead, I  did some stitching by hand.    Check out the DT examples here for their witty and awesome cards.  This week Jaime is offering up a prize package so join in for your chance to win. 
That super cute hot air balloon is from Jane's Doodles.   Now you can purchase it here ,but you might want to wait because I am offering one lucky person a chance to win this digi right here on my blog.  That's right!  All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post and I will draw a random winner next Wednesday.  Pretty easy huh?  Just be sure to check back and see if your name was drawn.  :-)

Great card, it's stylish too! Nver rode in a hot air balloon but saw one going up from nearby and there was a lot of noise. But once in the air there is a lot of silence too.


Gorgeous card :-) I love the image! Elaine PCC DT xxx

My only experience in a hot air balloon was one that was basically tethered to the ground by a long rope and they took people up in it for a short ride and then brought them back down. It was surprisingly noisy, yes! And with my fear of heights, it was slightly uncomfortable for me even though we didn't go all that high, but high enough to see over most of the town. I was also surprised at how close the fire is when you're standing inside the basket. If you do decide to take her, hopefully she will enjoy it, because I imagine it would be awesome up there. :)

Cute card!


oh my goodness...this is just THE CUTEST! LOVE the design and that FAB hot air balloon!!
