Celebrate with Balloons & Presents — PP138

Look what Anne Marie has for us today at the Paper Players — a fun sketch challenge!

I’ve been on a birthday card kick lately, so I pulled out a set I haven’t used in a while, Patterned Party.  I paper pieced the balloons and present, and pulled out my sewing machine to stitch around the edges of the card.

My L’il Peanut’s 8th Birthday

My l’il peanut turns eight tomorrow, so I made her this card for her birthday.  I used the Typeset Alphabet Bigz die to cut out the number 8, and then I covered it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

She is getting her first American Girl Doll for her birthday, and she invited three friends to have brunch with her at the American Girl Doll store bistro on Saturday to celebrate her birthday.  It should be a fun morning!

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!
