Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



Hello, I hope you are doing well. It’s the fourth Thursday of the month and time for the next Topping over at Seize the Birthday. Vicki has chosen a fun one for us! All you need is to add a balloon or two on your card. Remember, our toppings are always optional any Birthday card will do too. I have had this balloon stencil for over a year or more and it’s the first time I have used it.

Card Details: Stencil is from Catherine Pooler and the greeting is all in one and from MFT.

Now before I go I want to say thanks to Hilary for being such a fabulous Surprise Party Guest over the past two months. We really enjoyed all your wonderful cards. I also want to say welcome to Claire, she is with us as a guest as well, as she was the overall winner of our last challenge. Welcome to you, Claire.

Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out all the cards featuring balloons by our talented team and guests! Take care, Nanc’

  14. This is fantastic! Love the colours and layout. Proud of you for using this stencil finally (same with the hot air balloon stamp I used on mine but I’ve had it for way longer than a year). You picked the perfect stamp to go with this stencil.
