Travel by Hot Air Balloon

If you're counting, Baby Sodapop is now five days overdue.  Grr.

So as I was trying to get to sleep last night, I was thinking about card designs using this week's Freshly Made Sketch and my plan was to use the food truck from Tasty Trucks in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  And then I fell asleep and had a dream that hubs and I were traveling all over via hot air balloon, so instead this is the card I made today:


In the dream, we were traveling to Alaska, and I think a hot air balloon would really not be a great mode of transportation in the Great White North but since when do things make sense in dreams.  So here's the sketch:


And I paired it with the Color Throwdown:


I used Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Black for my card.  I like that cloudy pattern from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP for this card.

That's it for me today,  y'all.  Maybe the full moon tonight will convince Sodapop it's time to make his debut?  Cheers!
