Balloon Bunny Birthday Wishes

Pin It

Happy Saturday! Since I am sitting at my daughter’s fencing class for a couple of hours this morning, I thought I would take the time to post a card that I made for a friend’s (Scrap It Girl’s) birthday. (Stop by her blog to check out all her fabulous creations, her scrapping challenge, or to wish her a happy birthday.)

For this card, I inked up a new Lili of the Valley stamp that I got over Christmas. I love LOTV animal stamps. So, so cute!

It also gave me the chance to use one of the Christmas gifts my hubby gave me, one of the PTI Bloom Builders dies. Is he a good gift shopper or what?

If you like this stamp and would like one of your own, keep checking back. I bought 2 of these stamps so that I could give one away as blog candy on my blog. I’ll get the post up soon.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!


  • Stamps: Balloon Bunny from Lili of the Valley, Say It (In Pieces) (digikit) by Hero Arts
  • Inks: None
  • Papers: Neenah Crest solar white CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Bazzill Basics Aqua CS, October Afternoon Sidewalks paper pad
  • Tools: Martha Stewart edge punch, Big Shot, Papertrey Bloom Builders #3 die, Sewing machine, Copic markers, misc. pink CS from scrap pile

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
