Happy Balloon Day!

Happy Balloon Day!  That is supposed to be for a birthday right?  Well, I think we will make it just "Happy Balloon Day" so if you have a balloon or two, blow them up and let's celebrate the day!  Sound fun?  Yes!

The two little balloon characters in my card today are from Bugaboo, and called Kidz, Boy Balloon and Heart Balloon.   Bugaboo is ONE of our sponsors at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #117 this week!  Our theme is "Stitching- Real or Faux."  As you will see, mine is Faux as I forgot the theme until I finished my card and had to add fake stitching AFTER it was all put together!  Boy, I need to get my head on straight! (My hubby would say, "Good Luck."  He is so funny! ) 

Here is my Penny's DT card, Kidz by Bugaboo:

It is a Twisted Easel CardA very fun card to make.  Colored with Prisma's, a little yellow glitter on the balloons and buttons all around.  The sentiment is from TLC.  It fit perfectly!

We do hope to see you at Penny's this week.  We are such a fun and friendly group.  Stop by, say hello, and enter your Stitching projects...we so love to see what you make!

Hmmmm, I wonder if there will be Bright Spots today.   Yes, probably, if I keep my eyes open for them!  I'll have to see through the balloons tho.  I hope you have many.
