Birthday Boy

I can't believe we are a week into July and I have yet to post a card. I am definitely behind the eight ball. And next week we are taking vacation so not much crafting going on then either. But tonight I finally have a card for a special birthday boy.


This is a Bugaboo image called Sign It Boy Balloons. I colored him with Bic markers. I added a sentiment from Create with TLC. I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches but I used this one too late to join in the challenge. I used some scraps from my scrap box for the patterned paper The cute party hats are from a W Plus 9 set called Unforgettable. I used the m atching dies to cut the hats. The balloons and hats are covered with Glossy Accents to give it some shine. The background embossing is a Caning embossing folder from Paper Studio.

I am entering these challenges:
That's it for me tonight. I hope your week is off to an awesome start. I had yesterday off but I spent most of it catching up with chores. I was really hoping to get more crafty time in. Nit to be though. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again very soon.

A fun image and beautifully coloured Donna. There are rather a lot of layers for a clean and simple card but it's super cute and thanks so much for sharing with us this week. Sarah (Less is More)

Really liking this shade of royal blue that you've used. So festive and cheerful with the other colors that you've combined. And I especially loved the birthday wish. Perfect for a young lad! Have fun on your vacation. I hear you about the 8-ball too! Just enjoy your time away...blogging & cardmaking is a _hobby_ not our real lives. I have to remember that myself from time to time.
