Hot Air Balloon Digital Stamp

Hello,

How are ya all doing? Things have finally slowed down a bit here, so I spent some time making up a Digi for you. I've been wanting to do something like this for a while now, but have just been too busy. It's a time consuming process, but one I enjoy!

I hope to do a few more steampunk type images down the road. I like that style, though I haven't actually done much with it myself. I think they're kind of cool. I have some flying shoes in mind, or maybe gyroscopic shoes...I don't know - I'll see what I come up with.

Anyhow...enough of my chatting....
Hope you can use this on a project. Those things on the bottom are propellers, incase you're wondering.

**Cards using this image:

 Tom, from Onkel Tom made this guys card...
 Cleah, from Cleah's Designs made this lovely stepper card! I really like the way she colored the balloon and the embellies she added. Just super!!
Here's another cute card by Sandy! Sorry, I don't have a blog to link to, but this one is so cute!! I love the reflection of the balloon in the mirror. Really creative!! She's also used my Penny Farthing Clock image in this card. It can be found HERE.
 Awesome jobs everyone!! :)

I'll be making up a quick card tomorrow for my granddaughter, so stay tuned for that post. Thanks for visiting and have a good day!

Blessings,
Carmen
