CCEE: Ride the Wind!

Hi friends!
It's almost the weekend ....
so close, I can reach out and kinda sorta feel it :)
Thank you SO MUCH for the get well wishes ~ I have felt them!
I went from a bad flu to worst and just take it day by day, hour by hour!
I'm supposed to be resting, says the dr, but reality is, I can't.
I'm needed in too many other places so I sleep on an off when I can ♥

Frances is our hostess at the CCEE blog today 
and this was her challenge for us to create a card:

Today (23rd August) is Ride the Wind Day, this day was created to celebrate the anniversary of the first man powered flight. There are so many things that rely on wind for them to work, so let's include something that needs wind on our cards today. Some examples include kite flying, windsurfing, Hang Gliding; Sailing Boats, Birds Flying, Hot Air Balloons, Balloons, Paper Planes etc.

I love this!
Such a unique and fun day that's new to me ~ so thank you, Frances :)
 This was such fun to make ♥
From water-coloring the panel to the sweet floating friends and hot air balloon,
it reflects the sweeter side of Ride the Wind ~ friendship!

 For this card, I"ve used W Plus 9 Going Place stamps and dies.
I used a previously watercolor back panel as it resembled a sunset sky.
The images were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink,
then die cut with the Cuttlebug and finally, colored.
I placed them so the friends would be waving as they ride the wind
and float around!
The 'Carnival' dew drops are from Honey Bee Stamps.

To see all the Ride the Wind cards today, you can see them here.
There is also a linky to add your card should you decide to play along!

Thanks for stopping by today :)
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
