Cleared for Take Off!!


Happy Monday!  It's a clear and sunny day here in Michigan and we are clear for take off.   A new week is underway so please keep a smile on your face and operate in grace at all times. :-)   Today I would like to share a fun "boy's card' with you that I made with Carlos (my Silhouette Cameo). 

Here's our creation...

Cleared for take off!
I started this card off with a 6x6 scallop edge white cardbase.  I then designed and cut the clouds, plane, background landscape and banner using my Cameo.  I layered a yellow cardstock behind the black to make it appear that the lights were on in the buildings below.  The inspiration for this card came from the fact that my house is directly in the path of an airport.  I tell you sometimes I think they are going to land on my house.  I can wave at the pilot and I promise you he waves back. lol  I should have stuck a little pilot in the cockpit of this plane.  Oh well, maybe next time.  The FAB wordart came from Paulette over at Create with TLC.  I tell you ladies and gents if you are ever stuck for something to say, Paulette has it!  I wasn't going to put a sentiment on this card, because I couldn't think of what to say and sure enough...I looked through my stash of TLC wordart and found the perfect sentiment.  Thanks Paulette for saving the day again! 

Well, I hope that your week has an awesome start and that there will be very little turbulence during the course of it.

Thanks for looking and commenting!


Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
