Hot Air Balloon Snow Globe Scene

Hi bloggers!  As promised, one of the dies designed to fit the Domed Snow Globe; the Hot Air Balloon Snow Globe Scene.  I just couldn't resist using the clouds again, not to mention, the pixie powdered background piece that is missing from the background of the scene was a perfect fit for the background in the snow globe on the previous blog post (did you notice that?)  While you can use this die without making it into a shaker card, it is just so cute with Iced Flake, micro beads or tiny stars in it, don't you  think?  I am looking forward to seeing what everyone does with these!  Leave a comment on the post before you go.  I will be back at 6pm for the final post of the day.  All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue!
Love the Pixie Powder background.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

Lovely card. The snow globe scenes are really cute and as you say can be used with or without the treat cups.

Well I am still trying to catch up, but thought I'd sneak ahead with this one.

I had a wonderful time yesterday at Ally Pally. It was great to see you again Sue and even though you have hit the Big 60 you looked radiant and younger than ever! What's your secret...hard work I imagine as you have yet again wowed us all with your new release.

I am suffering a bit today with pain and tiredness. It was probably a bit too much for me yesterday, but I enjoyed it. It was lovely to meet Maria at last and Karenlottie and to see Sandra and her hubby again and the two Brenda's and I enjoyed chatting to Pat from Whitney. There were others but I'm rubbish remembering names so I'm sorry if I've missed anyone. Unfortunately, I missed seeing June this time.
I even got chatting to a stranger on one of my connecting trains who had the distinctive Creative Expression bags full of goodies. I think she was a little apprehensive at first when I asked her if she'd had a good day, as my bags were concealed in my rucksack, but she soon relaxed when she realised I was talking about the show and not some nutter who wanted to chat. Crafting really does unite people doesn't it?

I was home about 10pm as some trains were cancelled and then I had to pick my hubby up when I got the car from the station.

It was great to see Sue in her element patiently explaining techniques to people. I loved the demos with the chalk clouds and flowers. I don't think I'll read or see the word 'chalk' again without thinking of Sue and her best English accent sounding very posh!
I love seeing samples on the blog, but seeing them in real life is amazing.

I hope Sue and all those going to Ally Pally have a great time. ( hope you make it Yvonne).
Best finish catching up on older posts....

Love Helen xxx

June Horrocks said...

Don't know what's happening sue this is the third. Time I've tried to send my comment your card is beautiful love the. Air balloon snow globe thank you sue
Love always june horrocks xxxxx

lorraine eastwood said...

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Darn! I wanted to be first on the comment list but Rolph had his skates on and beat me to it:-( it was my only chance as i will never be up early enough for 6am, that's lovely Pams spot.
Great to see the second background for the snow globe, the hot air ballon is stunning and works really well with the clouds forming a picturesque backdrop.....i can now see that the clouds are going to be far more versatile than i had first imagined, i should never have doubted their usefulness......lovely card sample, the pixie powdered background really enhances the dies used.
Going to have a cup of mulled wine fruit tea and watch Escape to the Country....a poor substitute for attending Ally Pally but i will soldier on:-) Did you remember to bake some white choc fudge for Sue Yvonne? I have been consoling myself by having a breakfast of mango and passion fruit cheesecake....I don't know if Andrew would deem this nutritionally appropriate though Elaine, very tasty though!.....i found a new shop specialising in my favourite sweet treat and selling loads of different flavours, key lime, banofee, strawberry tart, baileys, white choc and Nutella , the list was endless and i bought eight just to road test them of course:-) who needs Yvonne's brownies when i have this one my doorstep?
Saba, have a lovely cruise, ive been to Croatia and the coastline is absolutely stunning. Enjoyxxx

Love and crafty hugs to all Sue's followers

Yorkie girl said...

Good afternoon Sue and everyone
Love the stamped image inside the globe Sue hot air balloon gorgeous your inspiration is always amazing.
I am terable with names but I hope the lady that introduced herself to June is reading this.
She said that she always reads the blog every day and follows some of our Wilsonetts like family and she feels like she knows us personally
And loves to read about June June do you remember her name ? .
She never ever comments although Sue tells her to so if you are reading this make a comment you lnow you want to then we can all get to know you better and you could win in the draws
Good luck to all when Sue makes her draw to win a set of dies
Take care folks

Donita Naylor said...

Oh, those clouds look so fine against a Pixie Powdered sky!

Helen Bell, thank you for the AP report. I bet your train trip went fast with a fellow Wilsonette to talk to.

Stephanie K., did the horses freak out when the sky fell into their pasture?

Littlelamb, I hope by dose you mean nap.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday

Love,
Donita

Pam Hartlepool said...

Love the hot air balloon, I can see this one being very popular. Love the clouds and the background on the card too.
Hope you are not getting too tired Sue, you have had a busy weekend. Lovely to read the stories from the ladies who visited.
Laine, not sure your breakfast would pass muster with your medical team but how delicious did it sound. Yum Yum, you deserve a treat.
Helen, rest up, you have managed very well this weekend.
June, sounds like a super day was had by all.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Another AP over for now, will you be able to take a rest ? Doubt it I really do !
I really don't do well with heights but always fancied treating my keeper to a hot air experience - maybe one day ☺ what on earth made you think of this subject ? Something you'd like to do I wonder ? Whatever the reason this sample and die is beautiful. One more to look forward to before the day is over, wonder what treat is in store. Going back to the subject of rest, how on earth do you keep your energy levels up, it beats me it really does, anyway enough rattling from me so I'll send our love and hope you find some R&R later xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love the hot air balloon scene, adaptable for several types of card. Yes, I noticed the pixie powdered background to the fairy and thought it most apt, nice to see where the rest of it went. Love the colours you have used.
I am way behind on all the comments because for once I have had both the time and the right weather to be able to do some gardening so I have spent most of the day outdoors only popping in for sustenance and to visit the blog. I will try reading through them all later this evening after I have cooked dinner and done some ironing.
