Going back to my series Death Has a Life Too, I offer you "Death Waits for a Hot Air Balloon Ride."

Riding in a hot air balloon is something Death has always dreamed of.

The details:
  1. Death stamp--from Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers Halloween UM set 3 at Stamp Francisco
  2. Hot air balloon and men on bicycle--from Balloons and Bicycles set by EZ Mount
  3. Faber Castell Gelatos
  4. KimberlyGeneral’s and Loew Cornell watercolor pencils
  5. Alphabet--Studio G alphabet stamp set
  6. Prima Marketing Chalk Ink Edgers
  7. Background trees--hand-drawn with Marvy Le Plume II markers
  8. Tsukineko Brilliance Dew Drop pigment ink


  1. ahahah this is a great card! Love Death and his adventures! Super coloring!~kim

  2. So have I, for a matter of fact, but you have to get up WAY early to go. This is so fun. wonder if the guys on the tandem are speeding away in fright. xxD

  3. Umm. He might want to put the sickle down - it might pierce the balloon and so long - but what if that is his plan after all. To kill the owner of said balloon ride.

  4. Agree with AJ's comment about the sickle! This really made me smile though to think of Death going in an air balloon...

  5. If there is one thing you can say about Death, he can be patient.
    I wonder if he made reservations?

  6. He is definitely not going to be able to get a ride. That thing will pop it.

  7. LOL, the sickle was my first thought too! Loving seeing Death enjoy his vacation!

  8. Can't help wondering if he has to share his ride? Wouldn't you love to get on a hot air balloon with a delightful chap like him and a very sharp object? Yeah.....next balloon please! Great background scenery and lovely layout! Love the guys on the bike!!

  9. Gorgeous page and image, great background.

  10. He's waiting so patiently. Wonderful journal page!

  11. Your creative mind is amazing! Who else would have placed the Grim reaper below a hot air balloon? LOL! Nice job!
