Good Morning everyone - I have some exciting news to tell you! 

I have been asked to join 4 Crafty Chicks Design Team - so every Thursday you will see a new challenge on the 4 Crafty Chicks Blog and my blog.

Woo hoo! I am so excited! From Millan.Net

This week the challenge is "Balloons" - use balloons, or a balloon or just somehow incorporate a balloon on your card or project.  Link it up to the 4 Crafty Chicks Blog making sure you only link to your one post - NOT your whole blog!!

So let's get down to business!

My card uses My Favorite Things stamp set called Party Balloons! I cut one out with the matching Die-namics Party Balloons and then stamped with it and the others with various ink.

The Celebrate word is also from MFT and is the Accent-It Celebrate Die-namic.  The Party Banner Die is also MFT - good stuff!

My patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink and came from one of the paper pads that we use to make the beads - cool eh?!

On the inside of the card, I stamped another balloon and die-cut the age 16 - this is for my niece! Happy Birthday Karly!

I hope you will join 4 Crafty Chicks for our Balloon challenge this week!
