Birthday Wishes

Well I'm having a pretty slow start to the year crafting wise and it took me ages to come up with this card for my Daughter's birthday. I used a Bugaboo image coloured with Promarkers and the paper is a freebie I found from The Coffee ShopBlog. Dies are Paper Smooches 'big balloons' Poppystamps 'general store tag' and Joanna Sheen 'tied ribbon' which were cut from snippets of card left over from matting the image. I haven't got a 'daughter' sentiment stamp so the tag was hand-written before I tied it to the balloons with some baker's twine

I'm hopping along to the following challlenges with this card

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use your snippets'

Double D challenge 'anything birthday / anniversary goes using moodboard'

Country View challenge 'anything goes'

Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'use patterned paper'

I'm off now to make a start on my granddaughter's card.... with a bit of luck I might just get it finished in time for her birthday in February! Thanks for popping by today and I hope you have a fun weekend whatever you're up to.

A lovely card Andrea and I really like the little tag that you’ve attached to the balloons, I love the colours too. I don’t know about you but I find it a real struggle making cards for the people who I’m closest to. It’s my youngest Grandson’s birthday next week and I haven’t started his card yet. I think that will be a job for tomorrow. I remember us both sharing our posts about our little ones being born and the year has flown by so quickly. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
