Up ,Up and away...

Hello blogger friends...
I hope you all had a fenomenal and blessed Easter day with family and friends,
celebrating the Resurrection of the One that saved us all...♥

Today I am posting a card that I cased from Lynn , anothe stamper friend from the
Stamp Addicts Blog Group on SCS. She sure has an amazing blog! ♥
You can view Lynn's original beautiful card here:

I made several of these cards to send to Lorie , who was the March hostess for the Sisterhood Of The Travelling Cards (SOTC) another wonderful group of stampers on SCS...we've been swapping -monthly- together now for about four years I think. ♥
 Here's Lorie theme in her own words:
"When thinking about a theme for March, what immediately comes to my mind is how windy it can be, and of course, kites. One of my favorite things to do as a kid was fly a kite! I have to admit that I really haven't seen too many stamps out there with kites, or kite themes, so how about "Things that fly." It could be anything at all that will fly. Kites, planes, birds, butterflies, etc. Whatever inspires you to pull out a stamp set that you already have and/or maybe one that hasn't seen much ink, and get creative...."

This is the inside of my card. Originally I was going to use this cute stamp only (for the front of my card) but then, last week I stopped by one of my favorite craft store and saw these sizzix dies and just HAD to get the clouds and the kite and oh my the possibilities to be creative are endless! Notice there are TWO sets? Well, I've decided to get one for another stamping friends too..I am sure she can create wonders...
I just hope she likes clouds and kites as well as I do! ♥

*** I also wanted to enter this card in support of Melina's first Twisted Tuesday Challenge ....the 'twist' was to have UNinked clouds in your card ... appears I am too late...dang!!
Yikes...I thought the challenge closed at midnight...
Next time I must read thoroughly!! :o(    ***

What a fun, fun card! I just love all of the various papers on the front. And then to include the sweet immie on the inside, well that makes it extra special! Well done, Sweet P!

Oh my! Paola, this is AMAZING! Those dies and stamps are awesome, and I've never seen anything like them. All I can say is WOW, as far as what you did with them! Gorgeous paper, and that beautiful ribbon and bling, then there's that lovely soft cloud background. You took this theme to wonderful and very beautiful heights! Love, love, LOVE!!!
