Colourful Balloons

birthday balloons

Need a bright and cheerful birthday card?  I think this one fits the bill, especially for the boys of this world.  I think I got those balloons as a dollar stamp from Michaels Craft store.  On that note, I really do need to avoid Michaels.  I can’t go in there without spending way more money than I had intended.. there are just too many fun things to see everywhere!

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
