Up, Up and Away....The Paper Players: Challenge #147 and ColourQ #191

A *cas* post this morning (longer one later...stay tuned) because, yet again, I'm drawing near to a Mr. Linky closing on me!  Three inspirations for my card:
TAWS Lighter Than Air stamp set - new family members to my collection
The Paper Players Challenge #147 (second go-round with this sketch, as I used it first for Ardyth's b-day card)

ColourQ #191 - first time with this challenge, because I *had* to show you some of my lovely new AC papers (trying not to hoard, but...)

Here's my card (and I think I've covered all the ColourQ colours in those oh-so-charming patterns...)

Thanks for dropping in; your comments are always welcome and appreciated!
Have a fabulous Friday!!

Note:  Tickled pink to be selected as a ColourQ Courtier!!


  1. What a cute card! I love the polka dot card, and your dsp coordinates beautifully. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players this week!

  2. Yes, gorgeous paper! I wonder why we tend to save/hoard these beautiful papers? Even when I do decide to cut into one, I use the smallest pieces possible! Awesome job paper piecing the hot air balloon and incorporating all the ColourQ colors in your card! Sweet sentiment banner too :)

  3. I am loving those papers too!!! We have great taste, don't we? They are perfect with the balloon and the warm thoughts!

  4. Cute card, Carol, love that balloon! Thanks for joining in the fun at the colourQ.

  5. fun...I like the blocking....

  6. I can't believe I missed seeing this until now!! This card has some serious charm and whimsy! And those papers, they.are.gorgeous. Perfect sentiment too, to go with the hot air balloon. Nicely done, Miss C!
