Up and away......

Hello friends,
It is now late afternoon, had wanted to get this done early in the day, but the best laid plans know how it goes. At least I got the photo done earlier so I can now just get it all on here.

Well another grey day, no rain yet today, but rather cool with wind... Since the 1st of March we have had just over 200mm of rain (well over our average for the month) and we have only had 3 days including today with not a drop. Lots of areas are flooded, dams bursting and people cut off being recued by helicopters. We must be grateful to have a home and be dry.

Methinks our last days of summer have disappeared and we will now be fully into autumn when this rain departs, which is not for another 4 -5 days we are told. We do at least hope for some nice warm autumn days.

Today's card is made with one of the new images released last Sunday at
. I just couldn't manage to get it done before now.  I just thought this was a great image for someone moving house. and it is called "home in the sky"

I embossed the background paper with a clouds embossing folder, which I had first sponged over with distress inkpad, stormy sky.
Coloured the image with distress inkpads, cut it out, and mounted it with silicone. Attached bakers twine with a button and added buttons in the corners.
Sentiment is from Netty's Cards.Annette has a lovely range of sentiments that are free to download.

What a fun image Ursula! I like the button in the corner - it is like the sun and the twine is the rays coming down. The embossed clouds are a perfect detail for your design. Thank you for sharing your project & creativity with us!

This is such a great image for a new home card or a "we've moved" card. Love how you used it and the layout. I've enjoyed catching up with what you've been doing. I wanted to thank you too for your kind comment regarding the loss of my Shotsy. It really was nice of you to do so. Hope you are doing well! Hugs, Curt
