CASology #171: VEHICLE

Hello, friends!  It's Tuesday, and I'm back with my newest card for CASology.

Before I get down to business, I want to say a fond farewell to my design teammate, Gillian Ross.  It has been a pleasure being on a team with Gillian, and I will always be a big fan of her work!

I would also like to extend a warm, crafty welcome to our newest design team member, Ren Loh from Ink a Paper!  Ren has been a regular participant in our CASology challenges, and her clean and simple style is amazing.  Welcome to the CASology team, Ren!

Finally, one last shout out to design team member Tracey who celebrates a birthday today!  Happy Birthday, Tracey! :)

OK, now let's get down to business, shall we?  Our newest cue card at CASology this week!

With cue in mind, I can't help but think of the funny movie, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" starring Steve Martin and John Candy.  (My favorite scene is when they are driving the wrong way down the highway...if you are interested, you can see a clip of it HERE.)

However, my card went a different route (no pun intended!).  I went with a less frequently used vehicle as a mode of transportation...the hot air balloon!

Papertrey Ink "Everyday Button Bits"
Hero Arts "Clouds" background stamp in Soft Pool ink
Darice "Cloudy Sky" embossing folder
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares dies
Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangles die

Be sure to link up your VEHICLE card by noon on Monday (Central time). Be sure to check out the DT and Guest Designer blogs for more inspiration!
