Celebrate You!!

Sorry I've been away so long. Things have been a little crazy over the past couple weeks. My full time job has gotten quite busy (which is a good thing!) and I'm coming home just exhausted. I haven't crafted for weeks and I think I was getting cranky because of it! ;) It actually felt good to get in my craft room, turn on the music and craft. I made a few cards.

This is my take on the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge. I love this sketch, I didn't think I would at first but I'm happy with the end result. I made this card for a friend to give to her nephew. The colours are perfect for a boy or a girl, that's what I love about them. I'm sad that this paper is going, it's just too cute!

It's hard to tell but I used Crystal Effects on the balloons to make them POP! And because I'm a numpty and
forgot to put brads in before I glued
everything together, I punched out circles and put Crystal Effects on them to make them look like little brads.

Hopefully you can see more with this angled picture.
