SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!

     Here is to the beginning of a lovely Memorial weekend.  Hope if you have big plans, that they go off without a hitch.  Mine is going to be a bit hectic, so I wanted to get a post up before I don't get back here.

     This is a birthday card that I created for my very best girlfriend's birthday, last week.  We have been friends for 41 years now.  If it were not for her and her DH, I would have never met my hubby!  She is the best, and is that person you can count on at the drop of a hat.

     This was made with all scraps of paper, and even the ribbon is a snip.  I used a small SB die for the sentiment panel and the sentiment is from D.O.T.S..  Do you remember them?  Probably one of the very first stamps I bought!  I outlined inside the die with a Marvy marker.  As for the balloons, they are SU! stamps from a set called Balloon Celebrations, and they were punched with the new balloon punch from SU.  I added a few coordinating sequins for sparkle.  I am truly in love with this color combo.

     I will be taking this over to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes.
Also to Pixie's Snippets Playground #230, where it is all snippets, all the time!

     Thanks for the visit, and have a great, safe holiday weekend.

Mary Anne,
This is so cheerful, those balloons look 3D. I love it. It's raining here today so no gardening. Maybe I can get my TH tag done or I will miss this month :(. This is really beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend no plans here, just a date the weeds. I have to tell you this took Bob to the nursery to get two bushes for the front which I had just uncover of weeds we found the two we were looking for. In the process ........ you guessed it the roses were on sale Bob picked out 5 different ones to now plant in back another garden to start. I can hear you laughing all the way here.

I really like that bunch of pretty balloons, and how you used leftover snippets to create the background! Good friends like yours are treasures and I'm sure she enjoyed this card. Happy Memorial Day weekend!
