Are you a blue lover as much as I am? I have always loved BLUE! Well, this challenge is the perfect way to satisfy that wonderful craving. There are many ways to make this palette beautiful, so you should really give it a try.

The Pals Paper Arts challenge using Island Indigo, Pool Party and Soft Sky was a great one for the card I needed to make – a baby card for a friend having a baby any day! That is one of the wonderful advantages of me having children ranging in age from 35 to 17. My friends are all ages! I will never get tired of little babies and making a card for someone else’s? Well, it ranks right up there with becoming a grandparent! My friend is having a little boy and her two older boys are 15 and 17, so she has a chance to do it all over again. I certainly enjoyed raising my second set of kids, having a more experienced perspective and I know that she will as well. Anyway… here is my card:

Balloon Framelits, Celebrate Today

I couldn’t wait to find a use for this fantastic bundle of Stampin’ Up! products! This coordinating stamp set and framelit bundle makes this card very fast and easy to make. I was so excited to finally have a balloon framelit! Don’t forget that bundles are always priced with a 15% discount, making this a great bargain as well!!
