Up Up and Away Birthday Balloons

Well I may have thought I was getting back to normal but with holiday washings and the kids off on hols, crafting time has been limited.  

This is a card for my cousin's baby boy who will be one soon.  It doesn't seem that long ago i was telling you that I had some baby boy cards to make!

I've followed the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays which this week is to use the colours - Lime, Aqua and Navy.  Perfect for a little boy I thought.

The number one and letters are cut using Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Sizzlits.  The balloons are from Up Up and Away with the middle balloon popped up on Dimensionals.  I've drawn string using my Stampin' Write Marker to tether the balloons to the number 1.  The panel is matted onto Night of Navy before attaching to the Pool Party card base.

I must admit my thoughts are turning to Christmas.  Why you might ask when we've had a gorgeous sunny day today?  Well because as a Demonstrator I received my copy of the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue today.  It's full of gorgeous seasonal goodies.  You'll love it I'm sure.  

It's one of the perks of being a Demo to receive your copies of the new catalogues early and you have the opportunity to pre order before anyone else.  It's very easy to sign up and as of the 1st August it can all be done on line.  Have a look at my side bar and click on the picture "Join the Coffee Morning Stampers" for more details.

Must get this posted so I can sit back and watch the Olympics opening ceremony.  Are you watching it too?
