Hot Things that Move

Hello friends.  It's been quite a while since I had time to blog.  We're back from vacation in beautiful Vermont where we got to spend the week with family, celebrate my Dad's 90th birthday (a little late) and make progress on preparing his house for sale.  The weather was a welcome relief from the heat.

Speaking of heat.  The CAS challenge at SCS this week is HOT, HOT, HOT. 

And my very favorite challenge, Less is More,  is a 'Theme' : 
Things that Move

This could be interpreted in a variety of ways...an actual moving component on your card, so a pop up, a shaker, a spinner, a charm, a tag... we could go on...

On the other hand your card could have an image of something capable of movement, so the scope for that is almost infinitesimal!

 
Thus, hot-air balloons flying in the sky.

I'll send this to my Dad to let him know how much I enjoyed spending time with him and how much I miss him.


Card Recipe
Stamps:  Up, Up and Away
Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Basic Black, Bashful Blue
Paper:  Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Other:  Stampin' Sponge, Sticky Notes, Scallop Circle Punch (for a mask for the clouds)

Thanks for stopping by and not giving up on me in my absence from Blogland.  I've really missed visiting your blogs and sharing my creations with you.

Enjoy!
