Pirckley Pear Stamps ~ Up, up and away!

Hi friends!
Today the Design Team from
Prickley Pear showcases cards 
using stamps and sentiments and dies.
Before I show you my card, some exciting news ahead ...
  on January 23rd
 Prickley Pear Stamps celebrates the first New Release of 2017!  

For today's card, I've used the stamp set:  Hot Air Balloons.
This is one of my favorite stamp sets 
as it brings me back to a wonderful memory.
One of my dad's bucket list items was to once again fly a small Cessna.
My husband found an airport outside of Orlando, Florida
and the two of them went off flying
 while our 3 daughters and I watched from the ground and took pictures!
The two of them zipped off flying in a bright yellow plane,
and dad was able to check off that bucket list item ♥

 I have been watercoloring so much lately!
It's an absolutely fabulous creative outlet and a fun technique to apply to cards.
I usually hammer out a few pieces at a time 
and while you can apply a heat gun to use them almost immediately,
I prefer to let them dry naturally, almost always overnight!
The base of this card was made using the Recollections glimmer watercolors,
so there is a lot of sheen if you turn the card just right :)

         Here is the stamp set I used:

Have a fabulous day, friends!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
