You've still got a lot to see so let's get right on with the card shares. The hot air balloon on this card is from the 'Happy Birthday' set and the sentiment comes from the 'Right At Home' set. I used one of the cloud cut outs and some chalks to create the cloud background (you can find an OWH tutorial here). I used a pencil to trace and then fussy cut the top edge of the card. This hot air balloon is so much fun to color. It's one of my favorites! I popped it up a bit using a bit of foam tape to give it the sensation that it's floating.

My next card is created with the 'Right at Home' set. Like the clouds, I stamped and cut a house and used a pencil to trace a few, overlapping and staggering them to create the silhouette that I then cut by hand. I also stamped the fence image a couple of times, cutting and piecing it together. My moon is a simple circle punch with a bit of chalk around the edges to add the glow. The house is a combination of some paper piecing in the roof, windows and door and the brick is colored with markers. My stars are simply tiny, random crosses drawn with a white Signo Gel Pen and my Martha Stewart fringe scissors made it easy to add a bit of fun grass.
