One more for the road =]

I received my daily dose of Debby Hughes this morning... always a highlight of my day.  A darling card, and as always, swoon-worthy - run to the link to see her beauty! But, this time, her card was attached to a challenge that is new to me!  Little Tangles Challenge #40 is a tag challenge this time.  I am almost always up for a new challenge... this time two! [more after this.]

I have been working on something for a day and a half.  I had been wanting to turn one of SSS balloon dies into a hot-air balloon for ages - a challenge in its own right with the silver thread!  What started out as a tag yesterday, I turned into a card today - perfect for someone special who is about to embark on a 10-day 82 hour drive =/

Ta and da:
Thank you, Little Tangles for the FREE digi "love you" which perfectly
completed that little basket!
Too many elements to list... if you'd like to know, I'm happy to share! [I love the cloud embossing on the vellum - Stampin' Up]

Less is More is another challenge I've been trying to submit to. Chrissie has inspired me to enter their current challenge to Recycle - who knew yesterday the journey my own tag would make?  Hope this qualifies, Chrissie =]

Had to include my very sunny yard today!!  Yay for sunshine... I'm going outside =]
