Up, Up and Away -




My neighbor celebrated his 65 birthday in quite a memorable way. One of his sons is training to become a commercial pilot up in Alaska, and he flew down for the day to take his Dad (and each member of the family) up in his plane for a short flight over the city.  What fun it was for all of them and what a great way to celebrate a landmark birthday!

I love this stained glass image.    The pattern was traced and cut with the Silver Bullet Platinum.  With the new two tool capability, I was able to "write" the greeting and cut out the label around it without having to change anything. What used to be a painstaking task to switch out the pen for the cutting blade all while trying not to move the image, became effortless with the two tools in place at the same time.  And it was quick too - I loved it and plan to do a lot more!


Acetate was used around the picture to add to the look of stained glass.
It was fun to pick out a variety of papers to fill in the sections of the 
hot air balloon picture and give it interest (and it was a great way to use up
some of those accumulated paper scraps!!)
I added white sparkle Flower Soft to the vellum clouds to give them
added interest and texture.  This was a really fun card to make
and it was totally appreciated by the recipient!







Pin It Now!
