Don't forget to have fun!

Helloo, friends! It's Sunday and you probably have much to do today, or not. In any case, I'll make this a short one. No beating about the bush, nothing long-winded, no lengthy, protracted, discursive ramblings. Just my usual trade-mark concise and succinct blog-note... and it goes something like this:

In between Church, Sunday lunch, Tall Ships Parade on the River Tagus and a spectacular concert by St. Patrick's RSS Vancouver Choir, I managed to produce a bon voyage card. It's for our dear dear friends who will be leaving on a 10 week vacation to the Far East! How lucky! I've used the sketch from WMSC # 107. Here it is:

The papers are form Cosmo Cricket "Togetherness" 6x6 pack.

For embellishment I'm using some sheer ribbon and twine. 
The sentiment is from WMS Half Pint Heroine and Say It Loud sets.
The hot-air balloon and the Girl are from Half Pint Heroes. The Boy is  from Half  Pint Heroes.  I paper-pieced the hot air balloon. 
On the inside I adhered a couple of clouds from the Half Pint Heroine set. I inked  a piece of water colour paper with TH's Stormy Sky Distress Ink, spritzed with water and let dry. Then  stamped the clouds with TH's Faded Jeans and did some fussy cutting. The sentiment is from WMS Say it Loud.
That's it from me today, thanks for stopping by. Linking this card to MIM #99 for their Anything Goes Challenge. I'm off to bed in bit. Tomorrow is the start of a brand new week and a brand new Mojo card to make! Take care!
