ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Celebrate The Occasion

Challenge #31

Welcome this weeks Celebrate The Occasion Challenge. We are asking you to join the design team in creating a Birthday Card with a balloon. I decided to use a Hot Air Balloon and created a card that can be both Masculine and Feminine. 

Card Recipe:
Red cardstock base
K&Company Hopscotch Boy paper
Clouds cut from Create a Critter
Hot Air Balloon Stamp & Sentiment from Pink By Design
Red Grosgrain Ribbon

I really love how the Pink by Design Balloon stamp turned out on this card and was inspired to make another card. So here is my Bonus project - a "Wish you were here..." card.

Card Recipe:
Craft cardstock base
Best of K&Company pattern paper
Clouds cut from Create a Critter
Hot Air Balloon Stamp from Pink By Design
I trimmed the flags from the hot air balloon for this card.
Sentiment Stamp from My Creative Time
Green Satin Ribbon

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you stop by Celebrate the Occasion and play along with this weeks challenge!
