Today I have some very exciting news to share and my news was the inspiration for this card...
If you are thinking my exciting news is that today is the first day of Sale-a-Bration and the Occasions catalog...you would only be partially right. While that IS exciting news, my news is even better than that! (for me and my family anyways!) Yesterday, January 3rd, we welcomed our first grandchild...a GIRL and she is HEALTHY and BEAUTIFUL!
It was love at first sight! Yesterday was truly one of the most incredible, emotional & memorable days of my life! I was blessed to be in the delivery room to witness the birth of our precious grand-daughter. Seeing my sons pride as he looked upon the face of his beautiful baby girl for the first time is a moment I will never forget. Baby Madelyn Ann came into the world at 3:55 PM weighing a whopping 9 pounds! Being the mother of two sons, it's going to be so much fun having a little girl to love and spoil...and turn into my little stampin' buddy!
I used the Lift Me Up Bundle - Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits, to create this card. I stamped the background balloons right onto a piece of Falling In Love DSP. I thought this DSP was perfect as it looks like its covered with tiny floating hearts. During Sale-A-Bration, if you purchase the Lift Me Up Bundle and one other small item...such as the DSP used here, you would qualify to choose one SAB item...such as the Any Occasion stamp set for FREE!
The Any Occasion stamp set works well with the large hot air balloon die cuts, to add banners to the balloon for, you guessed it...Any Occasion! Along with the sentiments in this set, there are many little stamps included to decorate the stamped banners in this 20 pc photopolymer set. I also used another great SAB set to decorate the balloon...the scallop and dot border stamped on the Calypso Coral portion of the balloon is from the Delicate Details stamp set. Other colors used are: Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and Peekaboo Peach.
