Wild About Saffron....PPA130



My daughter has already received a few sweet baby gifts from friends so I have been working on some thank you cards.  The Pals Paper Arts challenge this week  is to use Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke and any other color. I finally settled on So Saffron.  I thought it toned down the Limeade and brightened up the Artichoke.  

Now I am off to Florida.  My daughter, my son, his girlfriend and I will be driving to Florida to visit my mother in Cocoa Beach.  My daughter's husband is away for 6 weeks of flight school so this trip should be a good diversion for her.  As for my son and his girlfriend - every day is an adventure for those two!  They never sit still and love to travel.  And me?  I'm Saffron..........

I would love to know what was used to make these adorable bubbles. Since Linda may have already left for Fl, can anyone help me?
Thanks

Hi Sue - The bubbles are parts from Button Buddies - the rattle, the cherries and the pumpkin. I stamped them and punched them out with circle punches......linda
