My Time To Craft 'Up, Up & Away' Challenge

Oh my goodness this post should of gone live on Saturday and I have just noticed it still in draft, I scheduled it and all but obviously forgot to press publish! This is the first chance I have had to look as we had our grandson to stay for the weekend and boy did he wear us out. He is not 2 until August yet he really is behaving like a terrible 2 year old lol, throwing a hissy fit when you tell him no. He did make us laugh as he didn't want to sleep in his cot but would happily curl up in the dog's bed with them, my daughter in law said we should of left him there for the night as the dog's were happy to have him. 

OK so this week at My Time To Craft we are going 'Up, Up & Away' which means we would like to see anything that goes in the sky however if you are using a bird or butterfly it must be the main focal point on the card. 

For my card I went with a hot air balloon and found this great 3d style one which I love as it folds flat to go in an envelope. It is a 5" x 7" card and I have left the sentiment tag blank as not sure who this will be for as yet. This was super easy to make and I used my scraps from the Echo Park Walk In The Park collection.

My card is straight it is just the angle I must have took it at.
Card Stock - Lidl
Designer Papers - Echo Park 'Walk In The Park'
Brads - Papermania

See you all soon and have a wonderful week.

How exciting to have the baby for the weekend. I remember just a few years ago when Corin was that age. I would be dead by the end of the day. I know now why we are meant to have children when we are younger. I love your card. Beautiful papers and love the 3D effect.
Have a creative day.
Hugs Nana
