Flying in wishes

   For this weeks challenge at Eureka Stamps we want you to use paper piecing.
   I used paper printed from a La Pashe CD ROM for the sky and paper printed from Peerless Designs' CD ROM Woodland Treasures for the hill in my scene and matted and layered them onto mirri card and then white card.
   As summer is almost upon us I decided on a summer activity and used the digi stamp number 5704 (hot air balloon) from Eureka stamps and paper pieced this with odd scraps from my stash (One piece printed from a House Mouse Designs CD ROM and the other printed from a La Pashe CD ROM). I shaped the balloon slightly before fixing it with glue gel to the card. I coloured the smaller balloon using Promarkers.
   I matted the greeting onto mirri card and attached it to thecard using foam pads.

Great t paper piecing on your balloon and like those background design papers. Internet went on the blink again last night but behaving itself this morning so all jobs are on hold whilst I do a spot of commenting. hugs Mrs A.

I am rather keen on paper piecing myself Mary and the hot air balloon really lends itself to it and shows up well against the sky background.
