For the kids..

Today's Stamp With Us challenge is to make a children's birthday card - I paper pieced the balloons from Crazy for Cupcakes with papers from the Junior Varsity set and used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the sentiment.

The men's Wimbledon final has just started so that's me out of here! Sadly with no Mr Murray but I'm a big Federer fan so fingers crossed for him (not that he'll need it!).

Thanks for visiting - don't forget to check out the other Design Team's samples at the Stamp With Us blog and details about how to enter!

Really love the fresh feel to this card Kate, and these papers just happen to be my favourites at the mo!!

Fabby card Kate! Love your sentiment lined up along the edge of the balloon - very clever!
As for Wimbledon - I feel completely emotionally exhausted after that final! So glad Federer won but what a fight Roddick put up!

Love it Kate! Stunning

Just about recovering from the tennis - what a match! Hope you enjoyed it.

Great card for those (slightly) difficult boys! Love how you put the sentiment around the baloon, may have to have a go at something similar, thanks for the inspiration, Hope you enjoyed the tennis :0)

Love the simplicity of this and the cute argyle balloons you paper pieced. Woohoo....Federer did it again! What a marathon.

Have a great day!

Hello Kate,
Just to say I have used this fab card as inspiration for a card for a class, I will link it to this and I hope this is O.K. with you? Take care,
Hugs S.J. xx
