A Beautiful Ride....

five weeks in a balloon book - Google Search

Today I am playing along with the Library Challenge....use the title, cover, or story from the chosen book to create your card.  Five Weeks in a Balloon by Jules Verne is their choice for challenge #37.  Of course I right away thought of my new Above the Clouds stamp set and matching punch from Stampin Up.  I just love hot air balloon so this set was a must have for me!!

 We had a busy weekend with my in-laws here for a visit so I didn't get much stamping done but we had a great time together!! Time with family is always time well spent!!

Relax Your Way!

CITRUS!! That is the cue card from CASology!!  What says citrus more than a glass of limeade, lemonade or orange juice.  Take your pick today!!  I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set and matching dies to create today's card.  I even included a slice of citrus in each glass by stamping the "slice" onto my inked glass before stamping onto the paper.  This technique removes just enough ink to leave a subtle image.  Happy stamping!! 

Gifts Challenge: (using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts in weakness...we can see the strength of others//a diamond in the making//ability for growth
