Up in the air

I am feeling a little 'up in the air' at the moment... we have had our darling granddaughter with us this week and she has been an absolute delight, but  we have to go to take her home and I will be staying on for a few days as she has a couple of additional days' holiday for two in-service day closures of her school.
Until Tuesday, my daughter will have no wifi service, so I have to get things sorted PDQ!
Here are my cards for this weeks Less is More challenge entitled Up in the Air...
'planes, balloons, rockets etc
Here is a Woodware image paper pieced using some scraps from my drawer. I think it's such a fun set.
This is a Stampin' Up image, now retired I believe simply added to a raised panel. the sentiment was cut with SU word window punch.
Sorry this is so short and sweet, but I seem to have a zillion things to do including more flat pack assembly this weekend!
HAve a good one!

  14. Super cute Chrissie! I must buy myself a few aircraft stamps...

  15. Wonderful cards, Chrissie! I especially love that precision paper pieced top card. I love the dotted trail across the panel. And I especially love the clouds at the BOTTOM of the card. That never occurred to me before when doing balloons or planes ~ I still put the clouds high on the card. It's such a simple thing, but I am really wowed by it and love it!!

    Hope the chaos simmers down soon as things settle!
