  10. Beautiful card Yvonne, I just sooo love the hot air ballon, you made here.

  11. Hello Yvonne,
    Thank you for welcoming us to your Blog, what an amazing place to come for inspiration when you just need a little boost to get you back into card making!
    Now these new dies are absolutely genius when it comes to having a card to say just the 'right thing' this Balloon could be used for anything from ' get well soon' to 'Bon voyage', or as you have demonstrated so well today, a card to say 'hello'! We don't send cards like that enough these days, how fabulous would it be to collect you pile of mail and sort through the bills to find a gorgeous card that had been sent for no other reason than to brighten your day!
    Thank you once again Yvonne,
    Love & hugs

  12. Enjoying the blog hop. The card is very effective. Thank you

  13. Hi Yvonne another great card and the design is wonderful.
