Sweet Birthday!!!

 Well, I was running out of time this past week for making my card.  So much to do and not enough time. I almost took a week off. Went on a 3 day vacation and came home not feeling well. Still my card was not finished. I decided to go ahead and try to make my card. I was able to use a card that I had started a long time ago and never finished it. Everything was perfect except for the way it opened. But it works that way too. I just always do it the other way.

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo. I had not asked for an image so I used a freebee. I wanted something with a balloon and something that could go with green and red. What better than to use a turtle with balloons! Jodie, owner of Bugaboo, is giving away 7 digis for the prize this week. So if you want to win you'll want to go and play along at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

The design team has some really cute cards for you to look at. So bug on over and take a look. Hope you have a SWEET week ahead.

  2. I've gotta say, there's nothing worse than trying to be creative when you're not feeling well. Sure hope you're better soon. Your card is so sweet Arlana! Love the image and those wonderful bright colors!!! Take care.


  3. Arlana, your card turned out so cute. I can't believe how you can whip them out so fast even when you have no time and are not feeling well. I lolve the added balloon. It is a perfect addition to your card. And, I love that birthday present punch. How cute is that!! I hope you are doing better today. I am not coughing as quite as much now. It is still a bad cough, but better than it was.
    Love ya! Nancy
