Birthday Balloons

I had mentioned in this post "Its a Mouse Thing" about this fun kit I had purchased from Crop & Create last year.
I tried to use up as much as the kit as I could, so with the extra's I put together some cards.
The papers came with some cut a-parts, I cut them up and used them as focal points on my cards.
Check out this post "Say Cheese" for another one of my cards from these cut aparts.
I don't do Project Life so these are a great way to use up these types of elements.
One thing I did with every project with this kit was to back the papers on black cardstock.
I just love the how the colours pop off of the black!!
I also backed the tags with the black.

Here is the inside of this card.
I usually add an index card or a grid card to the inside of my cards to stamp or write my note on, but with this light yellow polk a dot paper I may just write directly on the paper.

Onto My Day:
My youngest daughter is going on a trip to Italy tomorrow!
We all wanted to spend time with her today, so Ashley, Tyler and Sawyer spent the day with us.
I ran to Applebees to pick us all up supper as we wanted to have a nice quiet dinner at home, just the 6 of us.

Kristy is traveling with her boyfriend and his family.
I am so excited for her, but also nervous.
She will be gone for 14 days...14 days!!!
I have never not seen any of my girls for this long.
Because this is her first trip without us, I have come up with every possible thing that can go wrong.
I have even thought of things that could probably never happen, but in my mind they could.
I guess you never stop worrying about your children no matter their age.
I know she is going to have a great time and will be happy when I stop sending her videos of how to not get mugged when traveling, lol.

I hope you have a very Creative day :)

  1. Beautiful card!! You never stop worrying about your kids even if they don't live with you anymore.. Know the feeling!

  2. This card is lovely...especially like the inside too!

    My girls are 42 and 43 and I still worry about them my heart, they will always be my babies!

  3. Ugh, I am the same way! I am freaking out right now about my girly going off to live in college dorms this fall. She will be home on weekends but ack!!! I keep obsessing over the 'what ifs'. I can't imagine it will change much even when she is 30. LOL

  4. Nothing is more cheerful for birthday celebrations that balloons. Of course you are going to worry about Kristy (& the boyfriend & family too)-that's what Mothers do ... & do well :)

  5. Great card! Love the way you put the tags behind the square frame!
