These cards are made with the awesome Stampin’ Up 2016-17 In Colors! Do you have a favorite? I thought Emerald Envy was going to be my favorite, but Peekaboo Peach is really pretty in real life. I want to make a birthday card set for a friend and I am having trouble deciding which balloon and which type of string I like the best. My thought is to make all five cards with the same design, but each with a different color. Do you have time to help me? If so, do you like the balloon being cut off on the edges (like the Sugarplum, Flamingo and Denim) or do you prefer the entire balloon being on the card (Emerald and Peach.) Do you like the balloon plain like Flamingo, dotted like Peach, dotted with silver embossing like Emerald, speckled like Sugarplum or swirly and white embossed like Denim? Only one more question… Do you like the Emerald cardstock string, Sugarplum and Denim curved string, Peach straight string or Flamingo Baker’s Twine string? OK I forgot the very last question… what do you think of the tassel on the bottom of the Sugarplum balloon?
I appreciate any help you can give me. Here’s a close up look at the cards:
Can’t wait to hear your favorite color and also any design advice you can give me. Yep, Abby was at work tonight so I’m depending on you!
I picked Sean up at the airport this morning and we went to La Mie Bakery for breakfast. I think it’s his favorite place for breakfast because we seem to go there every time he comes to visit. He did make a bee line for the strawberry patch when we got home, but most of the strawberries need a couple more days. Superman, the kids and I are so happy when Sean comes home. I took the pups, Maya and Molly to the airport and they were besides themselves with joy when they saw him. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Molly so happy! Whoever said a dog forgets people after two weeks, forgot to tell our pups. They haven’t seen Sean in 5 months and they knew their “boy” was home. We always say it’s a party when Sean comes home!
