Love is in the Air!

Ok so this post was meant to go live yesterday.....well we went out for a walk taking Nico with us & I ended up falling down the side of a really steep hill, after Nico decided he would fall down it....I managed to grab his tail to stop him falling any further & wedged my foot into the base of a tree to stop me....thankfully we didn't go any further as there was a busy road at the bottom!!!!! Still no idea how Nico's harness came off, but he is fine other than a bit smelly from the scare!! Me, well thats a totally different thing, sore back, hand, hip is killing!!!  But we are ok after our escapades! Katie was with me, but she just stood there with her mouth open lololol!!! Nige had gone off on his bike with his friend Ant, thankfully we had the car, so we went back to the car & sat still until they came back!

Ok so my last creation was a make for hubby for our 18th Wedding Anniversary....but I saw someone had made a gorgeous card using the freebie die from one of the mags! I decided I love Nige enough to make him two cards lolololol! 
So this make is for the latest challenge over at My Time To Craft, where the theme is....

SOMETHING THAT FLIES

birds, planes, bumbly bees, balloons etc


I can't remember the last time I made a card that didn't have a coloured image on it!

I love this card Shell… what a fab backscape and the balloon looks awesome! Sorry to hear about you and Nico falling.. glad Nico is ok, but sounds like you came off worse. Take it easy, takes long time for joints and muscles to heal… I hope you feel better soon hun.
Thanks for joining us at MAWTT for our CAS Challenge! :-)
Big hugs, Sue B xx

I love the scenery you have behind the balloon. I've now started running through the hills and singing the sound of music.
Thanks for joining in with our 'Let's fly Away' challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday, and hope to see you again.
