Always needing inspiration, when it comes to cards for men - sometimes the ideas are there with plenty of time to get the card finished, but most of the times it is last minute work.

This one was for one not last minute call, but inspired by a freebie from AiFactory.

I travelled with the recipient last year during the ash cloud, that suspended the majority of flights in Europe - we has to travel  long way by car to reach an open airport. During the car ride, we spotted several air balloons as they were not restricted by the closure of the airspace.

Paperpieced the stamp and used foam tape to attach it to the card aiming for a little 3D-effect

The recipient does not care much about sentiments, but this strip of destinations will trigger his travel memories :o)

Ooh! you made me so happy by using an AiFactory image! It looks wonderful! I find it so hard not to bling up my cards, I don't know where you gals find the restraint :)
