My Time to Craft GDT - In the Air!

Good morning, lovely bloggers! I'm scheduling this post, because when you read it I will be at the Alexandra Palace, at the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show! I've been saving up for this ever since Christmas!

Here is my second card as Guest Designer for My Time to Craft. (I am still so excited to be their GDT! :)) The theme this week is 'Up In The Air' - your focal point should be something that flits through the air, like a butterfly or aeroplane or airship or - a balloon!

I've used another Woodware image from the Patch A Flight set. I love the Woodware patchwork images, they'd be ideal for paper piecing with those little snippets that I can't help saving! This one was coloured with Promarkers, however.

The papers were free with 'Quick Cards Made Easy' magazine last year. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the green mat of the horizontal row, and tiny silver pearls from my stash. The sentiment came with the stamp set. The white card has been lightly distressed with Broken China Distress Ink.

Making a bright and cheerful card when the weather is grey and gloomy always lifts my spirits! Do go and see what the DT has done at My Time to Craft and let your imagination take flight!

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: Burnt Orange, Orange; Marine, Turquoise, Sunflower, Canary; Mint Green, Pastel Green; Poppy, Lipstick Red, Crimson

This is lovely Mags. I do love these Woodware stamps and you have created a beautiful card. Such lovely cheery colours.
Was lovely meeting up with you today at Ally Pally for coffee and a chat. Such a pity we don't live closer to each other. Hope you and Shirley got some lovely new goodies.

OOH hope you had a great time at Ally Pally . . . how on earth did you manage to miss us 'orrible lot up there . . . or did you see us, but pretended not to have, to save tarnishing your reputation? Probably a wise move! LOL!

Love your balloon card. Perfect for the challenge.
