Up, Up and Away.....

with my beautiful balloons. Don't worry you can't hear me singing it. Over at Crafty Cardmakers, Mynette has challenged us to make a project to celebrate her birthday with Birthday Balloon Bonanza. We can make anything with any kind of balloon. I used to regularly play with iris folding, it's been ages since I made a card with it. Late last night the electric light bulb went ping! An idea! this is the result - two flying hot air balloons up, up and away to say Happy Birthday to Mynette and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week. i found the pattern at  which are free to download.


  1. Wonderful balloons, great texture.

  2. Fantastic air balloons, love the iris folding.

  6. Hi must have heaps of patience with folds...the iris folds look great on the balloons! It makes them look more 3D I think.
