UP UP AND AWAY


Hi.  Hope you had a great Saturday.  We enjoyed a breezy cool day today!  All the windows and doors open.  House has finally cooled down and we can go to bed with the window open and no AC for the first time in I can't remember when!!  So nice.

Today's mail brought me a package from my stamping friend Cathy in Arizona.  She sent me an article about the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, with pictures of both night and day with the sky full of beautiful Hot Air Balloons.  What a site it would be to be there and see in person.  Cathy also tucked this big beautiful stamp into the package, all wrapped in pretty purple shiny paper, just because.  What a great friend.  I had to ink up the stamp and make a card.  I stamped and embossed the balloons, added some trees, colored with Copics.  Sponged the sky. Such a great stamp, those balloons look like they are just floating.  Thank you so much friend, I love it and we enjoyed the article and pictures so much.

Have a great Sunday.  Long weekend for most, make the most of it!  Until later...............
