Holidays

Hello ...
I'm not feeling too good today ... even though it's warm outside ... I'm feeling cold and tired
I probably need a holiday and some relaxation! Which, as it happens is what our challenge at 
Papercraft Star this week is all about. 

Our featured designer using digitals from our sponsor THATB is Sylvia, and as always both she and the rest of the ladies on the DT have created some wonderful inspiration for you ...

I too used digitals from THATB ... to create a whimsical holiday card 


I just love that balloon image ... Not that I would ever take a balloon flight ... I don't do heights! I'm ok in a plane or anything that's closed in ... but a balloon basket ... heck NO!

I used 3 images from #106 and one image from #045 ... with digitals you can alter the sizes and even the shade if you want 


My favourite postcard stamp from Papermania I used on the background ...  and 2 stamps from Eline Huis on the little piece of fabric ... which I attached with a pin by Tim Holtz


two little stickers from my stash just complete my card ...
I guess this is the nearest I'll get to flying away for a while ... how about you?

Please take a minute to visit the blog and check out the inspiration on offer there ... I'm looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations this week ...

Ok ... time for a warm drink and a paracetamol ...

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by

Oh poor you. Tired and rundown? Not good - looking at the card it's obviously not affecting your mojo!! :-)
I could do with a holiday too- do you think if we both packed suitcases ( full of crafting stuff of course) and nipped away for a couple of days, anyone would notice we'd gone?! Superb card- love all the different textures too! x

Sylvia said...

I am so sorry you are not feeling well, Ros, I hope you feel better soon. I love what you did with the balloons, unlike you I would love to take a balloon ride even though I am afraid of great heights as well. This particular collage sheet is one of my favs as well. Hope you are feeling better soon.

This is sooo pretty! Great texture and beautiful papers.


BTW, I spied your rooster card...genius! The rooster isn't really my thing, but that card is amazing. I hope you submit it for publication. My jaw dropped....it is really unique and beautiful.
