CCEEers Take Flight

Happy Birthday, Liz!!!
 
 
The fabulous Liz Williams is back as the CCEE Stampers Challenge hostess this week.  Here is her challenge for all of us.....
 
Tomorrow is my (Liz's) birthday,  and also Orville Wright's. Franklin D. Roosevelt issued a proclamation to make it National Aviation Day, to honor Orville Wright. I thought it would be fun to hunt down an image of something man has made fly in the air. It might be an airplane, helicopter, rocket, jet, or hot air balloon. If none of these are available to you, how about a kite or a simple birthday balloon? Our bonus can be to make it a birthday card!!!
 
I have to be honest and say that I forgot about the bonus to make this a b'day card.....sorry....no bonus for me.....
 
I have been trying to use some of my virgin stamping supplies.  Today I managed to use three.....the Spellbinders hot air balloon die, the frame die (not sure of companu), and the red tartan paper from Joanna Sheen.  I also used a cloud template to create the sky, a Stampscape tree stams for the tree tops, and added a sentie from Memory Box to finish it off.
 
Be sure to see all the creative 'flying' creations from this fabulously friendly and talented team at the CCEE Blog.
