Up, up and away....

Hello there...well we've made it...it's finally Friday evening!

Its been a long week...I had a meeting in Reading on Monday morning and I spent all day Wednesday in Cardiff at another meeting. I'm so pleased that the weekend is finally here and I can stay in one place for a while! I'm quite excited actually as I am going to see the Russell Kane perform his new comedy act in Aldershot this evening with Joe, my sister Lorna and her hubbie. I'm cooking us all dinner and then off to the show, then they are staying with us in Farnham.
 
Anyway, before they all arrive I had a little time to make a quick card.....

 
Its not my usual type of card I know....there is no pink or purple....or cupcakes to be seen! I was quite pleased with it until I coloured the stamped image (I think it looked better in black and white) and I added the orange bunting (I'm not very good at bunting!!).
 
The layout is inspired by the fab sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week....
 
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Top Tip Tuesday - up, up and away
