Sunshine and Blue Skies -- for SVG Attic

Hello, and happy Tuesday!  This is my last post for SVG Attic.  My time, this term, is nearly over. I have LOVED being on this team -- watching the company grow, working with the fantastic designs, and experiencing the friendships have been awesome.  I want to thank the owners, designers, design team leader, and design team.  I've loved every minute.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I am sending you all off with 2 wishes from one of the newest kits in the SVG Attic store.  I made two very similar cards from the JGW Above It All kit. Soooo many cute things in this kit!

I used the hot air balloon from the kit, sized it to fit on the front of a card, and cut it three times on my Silhouette.  Then, I scored them and glued them together.  The card will lay flat for mailing.

I used a Joy's Life stamp set for the sentiments, as I thought they were very fitting for the cards, and for the message I wanted to leave with you all today.  
Papers are from Close To My Heart.  They retired long ago, but I keep hoarding this cloud paper, using it in little bits. On the second card, I used a We R Memory Keepers Cloud Corner Chomper. The Aqua Blue Timeless Twine finishes off the card.
My wish for all of you today and everyday -- sunshine and blue skies!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
