Happy Birthday! - Wee Memories #60 Entry #2

Happy Wednesday everyone! Well, I think I've finally (for now) moved past my creative funk. I've been playing with my new Lawn Fawn stamps all this week and having tons of fun!

I made this card last night:

I popped up the balloons with American Crafts' foamies for dimension and, well, fun!

and thought it'd actually be a good entry (my 2nd) for the Wee Memories #60 challenge, which is still open ;).
I used Lawn Fawn's Admit One Stamps for the paper-pieced Balloons, then Sophie's Sentiments, & Bannerific for the Happy Birthday banner. All of this cool paper is from a 6x6 pad of Basic Grey's Lauderdale which I won off Kathy's The Daily Marker Blog a few weeks ago - THANK YOU KATHY!!! The bakers twine is by Divine Twine ;).

The colors are so bright and fun, perfect for a birthday! Well, that's all folks! I hope the rest of your week is amazing! I'm super excited for the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hope scheduled for Friday!!!
I'm participating - my 1st blog hop - YAY!!! It starts this Friday HERE. I have a super cool (if I say so myself) project to share, with a tutorial ;). I'm super excited about it, and I can't wait to hop along too!!! I've seen the line-up of fabulous girls participating & I can't wait to see what everyone has up their sleeves.

Until next time my friends!


  1. I love the patterned paper balloons! I am going to have to try this sometime. Can't wait to see your creation for the Blog Hop Friday, it will be my first Blog Hop too! So glad Britta and Marie got it together. :)

  2. Love the balloons. What a cute card. I have that paper collection and love the bright colors in it!

  3. What a fun card, the green background really sets off the other colors! I'll be participating in the hop too, I just have to make my project yet. Yikes!
