Birthday Thanks

So that happened.  On Tuesday, I crossed over into the next decade.  I'm looking forward to the 40s - they seem like the decade where you can celebrate because you are stable.  I look at my life and feel honored.  I have my family, my health, my financial security, my home.  I have my friends and my business and my mind.  I have aspirations that I can see strive for and successes each time I look at my kids.  I am honored and grateful.

For my birthday, I went to the spa and used the gift certificate my wonderful husband gave me last year for a massage, pedicure, and manicure.  It was heavenly.  I wanted to send a thank you card to the folks that helped make my birthday so happy and memorable and lucky me, I sell a stamp set just for that.  Plus I can use the same one for my family!

For this card, I used the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack.  This card is super simple and fast to make because I wanted to leave time to write a heartfelt note on the inside.  I love that you can use the larger images to punch out smaller images like the balloon.  Can you tell it's a Ferris wheel?  I also love that you can flip the string in the Balloon Adventures stamp set and get two different looking strings from the same stamp!



Supplies:
  • Cardstock/DSP: Very Vanilla, Pool Party, So Saffron, Cupcakes and Carousels DSP Stack
  • Ink: Early Espresso
  • Stamp Set: Balloon Adventures, All Things Thanks
  • Accessories: Balloon Punch, Triple Banner Punch, Dimensionals, Adhesive

WHAT IS PAPER PUMPKIN?


They tell you to sell what you love and I love Paper Pumpkin.  It lets me show people that I am thinking of them while taking much needed time for myself to do something I love.  I'd love to see if it's the crafting solution for you as well!
