Birthday Balloons!

Hi everyone!

I'm back with a very simple birthday card today.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and I liked it for its plain and simple design and its quickness, lol!!

I made this card a while back for my son's girlfriend.  The colours and theme of the card are based on the USA flag as her gift was the screenplay 'Hamilton'.  

It was very quick and easy to put together, with the help of my MS balloon and bow punches.  Finished it off with some sequins and stamped the sentiment.

Some challenges I'm entering:-

Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Moving Along with the Times - Something in the Air

Thanks for stopping in and saying hi.  Off to get ready for work.  Until next time ... happy crafting!!

Happy New Year!

Hello folks!

Belated Christmas & New Year wishes to you all!  I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season and whilst we did, we had our fair share of stressful events!  My father fell & fractured his tibia just before Christmas, leaving him needing surgery to put two screws in his leg.  Living on the other side of the world is hugely stressful at times like these, especially with aging parents.  And then, New Years Eve our hot water tank burst and flooded our basement!  Thankfully my husband caught it early and damage was minimal but you can imagine the mess & clean up!  Ugh!  Thank goodness we're in a new year!!  LOL

Anyways, onto my card which I have to show you today.  I've been making some fun "spinner" cards and this is one of them.  It's also a new set of stamps of MFT and they are so darn cute!  When you pull the front kitty with the tab happy birthday fully appears and reveals itself.  These are such fun cards to make!

I coloured the kitties with Prisma pencils, fussy cut them and created the scene using MS grass border punch and distressed ink for the sky & clouds.

Hope you enjoyed your visit here today.  Please let me know you've stopped by with a comment and I will in turn try and visit you back!
