A few cards: Some sentiments and a Hot Air Balloon!

Over the weekend I made a few cards! Now that I'm done working on my NB's, I can take a break and actually enjoy myself! One I made for MoxieFab's Challenge: In My Beautiful Balloon.

For this challenge, we needed to create something that included a hot air balloon. Now, I do have some American Crafts paper and embellishments that do have hot air balloons on them, but they didn't fit what I really wanted to do. So what else, but make it!! I hand paper-pieced the hot air balloon from both MyMind'sEye paper in Little Miss Muffet: Delight (B side) and AC paper Heat Wave: Cherry Cowabunga, with some kraft paper from JoAnn's.

The basket is kraft paper, and the ropes are actually a bent black and white paperclip. All of the pieces were inked using my Chalk inks. The background is AC Heat Wave in Creamy Coconut. The sentiment is a Pebbles Inc. rubon that my lovely friend Kristy sent me!!

Overall... LOVE!!!
This card was not as involved, but I love it. I used kraft paper, AC cardstock, some bling from my iRock, the B side of some MME paper and more bling on the butterfly, and some May Arts ribbon that I won from one of their Facebook contests! The "Remember" is from the Gypsy Cricut cart.
I know that I need to get together with some of my girls soon, and some aren't the wine type... So I know that this mug (Cricut) will be perfect to ask one of them for coffee soon. Some MME Quite Contrary paper, with AC cardstock and kraft paper. A little bit of bling sets it off!
And last, but not least, a sweet Dream (Cricut: Gypsy) sentiment with some AC papers and cardstock from a page kit from AC Letterbox, with some matching buttons, ribbon and some AC Flair.
Overall... I love the four cards that I made! I know that I have to find the best recipients for them. Enjoy!
