DLS's B'day Card

So my DLS (darling little sister...little because she is 11 years younger and 4' 11 3/4" {that 3/4" is VERY important lol} of loveliness..) had her birthday August 26 and before you all give your screen the knowing 'bet she was late' look I'd like to say I was NOT fact I was EARLY!! Get the balloons and confetti out lol!!! I'm just late posting her card on here so without further ado here's her card...

I stamped Lily and the balloons from the Add On set to create this little scene. My idea was Lily and Magnum were walking carrying balloons and Magnum fell into the hole thus having Lily getting one up on Magnum yet again lol. I probably should have had magnum's head poking out of the hole but I need to get my card done quickly and I thought of it after it was winging it's way across the pond safely tucked in my friend Sharon's suitcase. 

The Add On set is just fab ... you can intermix the images with other stamps. For this one I've stamped Lily then the balloon so it looks like she's holding it. I removed the # on the balloon by placing a piece of tape over it before tapping it in my ink pad, removing the tape then stamping the balloon. Because the stamps are clear it's easy to place the images exactly where you want 
them :-D

I've a long way to get my bunting like the Bunting Queen Julie but I think it's better than my first couple of attempts. I've added little pink nailheads (soon to be added to the store) in between the flags.

Glamour Dust to the balloons makes the card sparklicious!

My baby is coming home tomorrow for good. Steven's 4 month of 'work' in Spain is finished so it will be great to have him back though not looking forward to all the washing. Think it's high time I start delegating and washing just might be the first on the list lol.

Hope you have a great week

Catch ya later x

I just love how you've used the Add on set! I really should go and try some bunting myself. It looks so festive. BTW, I can totally relate to creating cards in time for a change and still post them late. When they are ready, I place them in the living room so that I can enjoy them myself and sometimes forget I should be sending them off like yesterday LOL.
Good idea to delegate certain tasks to a fully grown son, but then again, he'll always be your baby won't he?
