Flying High In A Hot Air Balloon

How about a little trip in a hot air balloon today? I’ve always liked the idea of it but have yet to try it, what about yourselves? Ever been for a hot air balloon flight? What is it like?

I don’t think we would fit into this little hot air balloon though! It is one of the Basically Bare from the Signature Range available from Kuretake, it is called Up Up and Away and you get two balloons in the set – a fabric one and an acrylic one, with a corrugated cardboard basket and a chipboard basket.

This one is the acrylic balloon with the chipboard basket.

All the colour is from the ZIG Painty Markers and I’ve used a collage background. The little flower button is made from the Basically Bare Bare Basics Blossoms and Leaves.

I’ve got full instructions on how to put this make together if you are interested – it is on the Kuretake blog.

Have a lovely flying Wednesday!

    BTW, I'm running the Race for Life in a few weeks time and am looking for blog friends to sponsor me £1. Anyone kind enough to do so goes into a draw for a £25 crafting gift voucher so why not drop by and take a look? X

    lol Don't make me laugh Kim, I have been trying to get up in a balloon since November 2010! My 6th attempt was cancelled last month. One day I'll be up up and away.

    Love you card. 🙂
