Here's the Design Team:

The cards on the hop are wonderful so be sure and visit them all! I love the new Hot Air balloon image and have all kinds of ideas swirling around in my head. I was on a hot air balloon team in my 20's back when I lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico (hot air balloon capital of the world and home to the International Balloon festival which is a total visual treat). Here is my card:

I sponged clouds on an old dictionary page (one with the definition of balloon on it) and glittered up my balloon with Stickles.

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.

  9. This is fabulous Nancy! I remember watching the balloons when I was little. I was born in Albuquerque. Nothing like seeing all of the colorful balloons up in the blue sky. I love the dictionary page. The sparkle on your balloon is wonderful. I love the sponged clouds too.
