Simply The Best!




Oh I'm busy, busy, busy. This week Melanie has had waterpolo practice everyday and has had two games, in one she got punched in the nose and got a nose bleed. She was pulled out of the pool until the bleeding stopped and back in she went and hasn't had any problems with it. Greg has had basketball practice and a game this week, there sports activities seem to fall on the same days. Thank goodness for the crock pot, I don't think we would eat without it!

Now on to the card. The balloons are from my set "Everyday Chat", they are stamped with VersaMark ink, heat set and colored in with pencils. Glitter glue is added for a little sparkle. To help fill up the space I added a strip of decorative paper to the edge. The sentiment is stamped with VersaMark ink on pink paper that was cut into a tag shape and layered onto light green and brown papers. Star tickers were added to the corners and walla, your done.
