Sad Morning 😔!
 Today sees my last day as a DT over at  QKR Stampede

I've decided to step down.  Hubby has a wish list of things he needs to do, and because it's a weekly
Challenge/Anything Goes... I  know I can't manage everything at the moment and my priorities are home ..To say I've had a 'blast' in an understatement!!! A really great set of girls,  such fun images too.
Karal you've been  one amazing 'boss'. ....Will miss you all  xx

 So my last DT card for this week Challenge is  Up, Up and Away/Anything Goes
Yikes! Now this made me laugh!!!! What a pun!

I choose digi8201 Floating Away.  Just thought this would be perfect for a shaker card! So I 'took' the balloon out with a Spellbinder die and made a shaker one instead..Coloured with Copics..  Distress Ink Broken China for the sky.....Sentiment computer generated....The little beads? Must admit there was a slight mark on the paper! So I had to put a few on so it looked okay lol.
