Contempo hot air balloon

This is the first chance I've had to sit down for 5 minutes all weekend... my own fault for trying to cram so much in of course!

After a lovely day of crafting yesterday, followed by some walking and dinner with a friend, today was more of the latter and now I'm exhausted. 

So here is a quick card which is appropriate for this time of year and the still reasonable weather we have been having.

Do you remember the fabulous Christmas themed stamp set Contempo Christmas... well, sadly it's also retiring this month from the main catalogue, which is a great shame as it can also be used for non-Christmas themed cards.
Here's one of the cards we made at my class yesterday, using the lovely Brights collection Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise colour theme.

The base is Tempting Turquoise and I have cut a piece of Melon Mambo card stock which has then been run through the Stripes embossing folder for the background.  The image is of course the 'Christmas bauble' stamped upside down in Tempting Turquoise ink to march and the little basket was created with the 'flower pot' part of the Christmas tree stamp and then cut out and raised up with dimensional sticky pads.

To finish the 'strings' of the hot air balloon have been drawn in with a Sahara Sand Stampin' Write marker pen and the sentiment is from the Easy Events stamp set, punched out with the Word Window punch.

Don't forget I'm offering FREE postage on orders of £45 until the end of the month and the retiring products list is updated daily here, and these products will only be available until the end of September.

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend...
