Sue Berker was kind enough to send me some die cuts for the Up, Up, and Away set from PTI. Seeing as I'm a backward hick who doesn't own a die cut machine, this is akin to winning the lottery, especially since I do have the set and frankly wasn't looking forward to cutting out those baskets. The balloons, no problem, but those tiny baskets...not so much. So thank you, Sue, for making this card possible.
I chose to make it a Miss You card because every time I see balloons up in the air, I think about people being out of reach, off in the distance, out of touch, hopefully having a good time but oh my gosh that thing could plummet to the ground in a heartbeat!
You might say I have issues with hot-air balloons. But they are so pretty and colorful up in the big blue sky and a perfect subject for cards, don't you think?
Angelahatha at SCS also sent me some other die cuts that I'll be showing later. Y'all are just too good to me!
