I wouldn't mine being woken up by the balloon going over if I was in Florida right now with the warm Florida sunshine.. We've had frost this morning & sleet & snow shower this afternoon.
Love your atc's . Jill #4

Happy WOYWW . . . the girl on your first ATC looks like how I felt this morning! LOL!

Both ATCs are fab and it's a great sentiment.

Hope you manage to get MORE sleep tonight!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Oh my - 24degrees!!! I think it's slightly more than 8 degrees here - but not a lot. There is a huge amount of snow on the mountains again - and it had almost all melted!
I like the idea of the desk photo being a challenge! - great fun. Well done on the art work, too.
Take care. God bless.

Fantastic ATCs Kathy!
Thanks for playing along with us at Shopping Our Stash for our "Think Ink" challenge this week!

Cara said...

Great ATCs, love the sentiment. It's been sunny here in Lancashire, but a random heavy hail storm has just started! Good old British weather! Have a good week, Cara X

I love your ATCs - so artsy. I have ideas of how I want mine to look but whether I can get them there is another story.

Hot air balloons can be quite noisy. You wouldn't think so but they are. Very nice to look at though.

Hi Kathy, thanks for the visit to mine. I'm on catch-up today as we were out walking most of the day. The weather in the UK is all over the place. Loving your ATCs, I need to get started on mine for the anniversary. Have a great week and belated WOYWW, Angela x 21

Marit said...

Thanks for your visit... I'm even much later with my visits! Your photo brings back memories... balloons like that sailed over my former house often, sometimes even three or four at once, and now I realize that I haven't seen them in this region yet (I live here for 2 years now...) I always liked the sound of the gas and all the different colors that they have. I hope you still have nice weather, it became Spring-like in the Netherlands this weekend and I LOVE seeing the sun now! Hug from Holland, Marit #39

Sharon Madson said...

Thanks for your visit. Sorry, I am so late to get back to you. I don't think I have been here before. Nice post, and I really like the shot of the hot air balloon. I like the jorunal in your fave proects. That is a neat little slide show! #61

What a great ATC that you shared with us at ATSM. I love the colour combination, the design and surely the sentiment. Thank you for playing with us. Creative regards from stempelfrida
