I am sharing the card I made for my great nephew with Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration link up if you have time stop by and check out all the other blog postings.

It has already gone out in the mail but after looking at it now I wish I would have popped up the balloons too, that would have been cute.  This little scene just brings a smile to my face.

Penny Black -- Let's party stamp, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- A2 Distressed Edges dies
Fiskars -- Cloud punches
Inkadinkado -- Greetings/Salutations sentiment stamp
Queen & co. -- Jellies Gold

I just sponged the sky a bit with some tunbled glass distress inks.

Here is a close up of these little guys celebrating.

We had a bit of freezing rain this morning but they are saying we may hit 50 today so the 6 inches of snow we had this weekend may start melting quite a bit.  Peanut will be happy, she doesn't like having to hang out on the deck, she misses roaming around the yard.

Hope your week is off to a good start,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and share your thoughts,
