Balloon Cards

Happy Saturday everyone!! I'm on vacation and it's awesome. It's only a 3-day weekend vacation, but it sure puts a smile on my face having an extra day to play. Whee! We are having friends over this afternoon for a BBQ and the weather is wonderful right now. My kids are already bugging me about filling up water balloons!!

Speaking of balloons, I made these cards for a challenge over at Croppin' Paradise to make 2 similar cards using different sentiments.



I used the Man of the House papers by Bella Blvd and the Button Bit stamp set from Papertrey Ink. The sentiments are also from the same stamp set.


I cut the ballons with my Indie Art Cricut cartridge and added some stickles. Just to bling it up a bit!!



I think the sentiments are perfect for sending a card to someone you haven't seen in a while. I can think of a few people who will be getting these cards!!

I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend. Any big plans??? As long as the weather is nice for us, we will be spending it outside, BBQing, testing out my new cocktail recipe book and hopefully hitting the beach! Have a GREAT weekend everyone!
