Happy Birthday Balloons

Nice & Easy Notes is such a great set for almost any occasion, isn't it? I love these balloons, which I had stamped a long time ago. I made a sheet of each image, so that when I was in need of a quick card, I could just color and go. These are colored with my watercolor pencils and water pen. The dp is from the dollar store, and the orange is stamped with Versamark using the stars from MFT Icing on the Cake. The layered ovals are the scalloped oval Giga Punch, and Curvy Cutter shapes. I doodled around the ovals with my gel pens. I traced over the tie on the balloon strings with my Spica glitter pen. "Celebrate" in the lower left corner is from Studio G, and the ribbon is Ribbons and Bows, Oh My!Inside, I put some white paper and stamped a nice sentiment, but forgot to take a pic of the inside before sending this card off to a birthday party yesterday. It said "Wishing you a day of smiles and laughter," which is from Hero Arts.

So this weekend, I did get a tiny bit of time in my stamp room. Mostly, I am working on images for a batch of cards I will show you later. Let me just say that my elbow hurts from all the coloring!! This week, I am expecting my shipment of Nestabilites Squares (yeah, I gave in and ordered the whole square set!), and a small order from All That Scraps.

I hope you all had a good weekend. I have decided to extend my scrap candy drawing until Tuesday to give more people time to enter. If you haven't seen it, go here to enter! Thanks for looking!
