Up In The Air

.......thats the challenge at The Male Room this morning, but there is a catch...No Birds! Every time I went to search for a stamp I kept finding bird ones! I turned the problem over to my two eldest children, home for the summer from university, and their brains are obviously much sharper (younger definitely) than mine as they came up with loads of ideas. The one I finally went with was Fred's. He even helped me with printing the digital image I used.

I had already decided to use the cloud embossing folder. I printed the airplane image, fussy cut it out and stamped the sentiment from Fabulous Four, which I chose simply because I thought it fitted well with the design.

I split the sentiment up to make a banner for the 'plane and placed the rest on the layers. I did have a few tries at the embossing, the first time I sponged some blue ink over to make it more sky-like, but in the end went for a complete clean and simple look. You can see it better on the next photo.


  1. What a great idea! Love that your kids helped--such a clever & fun card!

  2. Terrific idea to make a guy get well card! Something I would not have thought of! Clever!

  3. Love this aeroplane pulling the banner, such a versatile stamp to have in your stash. Looks amazing used as a get well card and that rhyming sentiment made me smile.

  4. I love the plane pulling the message - reminds me of summer days in England! Such a great take on the challenge. xx

  5. I love the embossed clouds, they look just great behind the plane. And such a great idea to have the plane pulling the word banner - too cute!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
