Up, Up, and Away .... in my beautiful, my beautiful balloon!!!

Not sure how many people are old enough to remember that song by the Fifth Dimension. Up, Up and Away was recorded in 1967 and was a smash hit winning many Grammy awards. Whenever I see a hot air balloon, I am reminded of that song and then the little tune just stays in my head forever!!

My card below features a Hot Air Balloon digi image designed and drawn by artist Gerda Steiner. For right now, it is a freebie image and you can get it here. In fact, there is a 1st Freebie Design Challenge going on but hurry and enter because it ends July 14th at 8 p.m. PST!
Voting will start on the 14th of July and ends on the 31st of July at 7:55 PST.  Whoever gets the most votes will get 3 digital stamps from  GerdasDoodles Store on Etsy.  So be sure and visit the challenge blog and get started! I'm also entering this card in the Outlawz Paper Ala Mode Challenge. The theme is summer.

P.S. On July 15th, be sure and visit the Through the Purple Haze Challenge Blog. It is a brand new challenge blog and I am excited to be part of the Design Team. There will be great prizes!
Spread the word!
