Todays Card - Cat With Balloons


Had a lovely morning today, my friend came round with her three children and we had a good chat and drank Earl Grey Tea while the children played together. It was really nice.
My mum phoned in the middle of it to say that she's got the star letter in "Simply Cards and Papercraft" magazine again! This is the third time she's won it. Good on her too, she makes some lovely cards!
The cat with the balloon card is the other one I started making yesterday. I finished it off this afternoon, after a disastrous trip to the park with the children but that's a whole other story!! I decorated a chipboard tag that my mum gave me when she came over on Friday. I have to say I do love chipboard - gives it that lovely 3D chunky effect. As you can see I'm still experimenting with colours, I'm well out of my comfort zone but enjoying the change, I have to say.

I love all the circular things on this card . . . the dotted paper, the colorful circle paper, the decorated chipboard tag . . . even the balloons are circles! This is cute and colorful!
