Amazing Birthday

Happy weekend! We spent last night out at our other property and then came back today to help with a fund raiser for The Teacher's Warehouse. Tom and I started volunteering there this week. The Teacher's Warehouse gathers materials for teachers in the surrounding 5 counties. The teachers can shop for free and take what they need for their classrooms. It's an awesome place. I wish there had been such a place when I was teaching.
Today I have a birthday card that I sent to a friend this morning.

The focal point is the sentiment from a retired stamp set from Simon Says Stamps (Happy Everyday from 2013). The flowers and heart are from the same stamp set. The balloons are from MFT Happy Hippos. The balloons were colored with Prismacolor pencils and accented with a white gel pen. The inks I used were all distress inks: Lucky Clover, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Mustard Seed. I was trying to match the MFT Sweet Celebrations paper that I used in the upper left corner.
I am entering these challenges:

Hope your weekend has been fun and relaxing and hopefully some creative time. We have the twins all day tomorrow so there won;t be any creative time for me tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by. I need more birthday cards this week so I'll be back! Thanks for stopping by.
