Balloon Bouquet Punch

Hey there...GOSH IS IT HOT!! Are you staying HYDRATED?!?!?! Sorry to be blogging so late today...I hung out with my kiddos today.  We had some chores to do this morning while it was cool, then some a trip to town for an ice cream and now I'm at my computer...which is right by the air conditioner!  I am so grateful!  I can't complain too much though...I have a son in Phoenix where it is 119 degrees and two sons in Woodland where it is 107 degrees...and all of my friends down in Redding where it is 108 degrees! CRAZY hot...and it came on so quickly, I'm just not ready for it. Even my husband, who LOVES the heat, says he's having a hard time with it because it hit so quickly! The nice thing about the little mountain town that I live in is that is cools down almost every evening...into the high 50's or low 60's...that helps with sleeping and gives me time to get outside chores or walks done before it gets hot! Well...ENOUGH about the weather! I have a workshop down the mountain tomorrow which I have been busy getting ready for.  I'm so excited to be sharing new products with my ladies! 

Today, however I have some more birthday cards to share with you!  I have some retired birthday paper that I wanted to use to put some quick and easy cards together...here goes!

The SUPER FESTIVE cards came together so quickly! The background paper is from the RETIRED...It's My Party designer paper pack. I can't wait to make these with some current designer paper...my order came in last night! I used my Balloon Bouquet punch (which is available in the NEW CATALOG) to punch several different balloons and dry embossed them with my Softly Falling embossing folder.  

After layering my designer paper onto Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Whisper White and Sahara Sand cardstock, I attached the balloons with dimensionals.  I also attached a piece of matching Bakers Twine. Some I let hang freely, tying a bow around the lip of the balloon.  Some I tied a bow at the bottom and adhered with Multipurpose Glue. They all have a birthday sentiment on the inside! FUN!

Tomorrow I have my workshop so I will be gone all morning! I'm gonna miss a lot of excitement at my house...don't miss the details...come back tomorrow to see what's up!

Thanks SO VERY MUCH for stopping by today!  I LOVE sharing my creations with you!
