Balloon Madness


Well i'm officially a doughnut / muppet !!! - went to physio and she gave me some exercises to do, was supposed to have a massage on thursday, but it got cancelled by the woman at the last minute and i was so gutted, - well that evening i tripped over son's scooter and i went one way and guess what - yes my knee went the other way !!!, so it was a trip up to the local minor injuries clinic yesterday, they x-rayed it, there is nothing wrong with the bone or cartilage, so i have a ligament problem, so i'm now wearing a very sexy support !!!.

Today's card is for one of son's girly friends from school, who is having a party next week. I find this stamp is rather large, so i decided to stamp it and cut it out individually, then paper piece the spotty paper onto the balloons, added a sentiment and a 5 in the middle, finished off with purple gems- it is supposed to be Lilac, but the photo looks more blue, so i may have to take another photo tomorrow.

Hi Sam

I hope your leg is getting a bit better now .. .. the sexy support sounds like it is something you would hide under trousers!!!

Your card is gorgeous.

I have that sentiment stamp and have never thought of putting a number in the middle .. .. great idea .. .. thanks for the inspiration.

Love Jules xx
