Lots to Celebrate! FMS199






An on line friend left a comment on one of my posts recently saying that she liked how my cards reflect what's going on in my life.  I thought about her comment when I finished my card for today.  It is a bit busy and that is just how my life is these days!  

We will be celebrating at a wedding this weekend and Miss Emma is so excited to be the flower girl.......or as she says, "I'm the girl flower!"  She has been practicing but who knows what will happen on the wedding day!  In the meantime that girl flower had her first pedicure and she loved it!  Hope she doesn't stop to show everyone her new "toe paint" on the way down the aisle......





Karren Johnson my talented friend from the other hemisphere outlined a terrific sketch with lots of room for your own interpretation! I used a sentiment from Fabulous Four and balloons from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit on my card today. Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!


                 


And don't forget we will be celebrating our 200th sketch next week!  It is going to be fabulous!

What a cute card! Love all of the colorful balloons and the sentiment right in the middle of them. :) And the "toe paint" pictures are pretty awesome too! :D

Love your card! I really like the balloons that overlap; such a fun design! And Miss Emma? Well, she's the bees knees! I love watching her grow. I can see her taking a step down the aisle, and putting her little foot out for everyone to admire her toes. What a cutie pie. She'll steal the show for sure!

Your little girl flower is adorable getting her nails done!! Love it!

Love the card too. Simple and beautiful and the overlapping colors really makes it pop! Not to pop the balloons of course! :)

Nothing like balloons to stoke the party atmosphere! Version 1.0 of my card this week used balloons and I'm soooo glad I scrapped it because it would have looked like something a two year old made next to this! Looking forward to hearing about Miss Emma's adventures as she trips down the aisle!

I love everything about this card! The fun balloons are perfect for a celebration. Miss Emma will make a perfectly adorable girl flower. I hope she doesn't steal the show from the bride. :)

Love the multi colored balloons.... so cute and cheery. Speaking of cheery... little Emma is going to cheer everyone up when she steps down the aisle! So cute. Can't wait to see a photo. hugs.

Adorable card - I've got a thing for balloons at the moment and looking for the perfect stamp and die set, so this really appeals to me. And as for your girl flower, I'm sure she'll be fine and everyone won't be able to help but smile at how cute she is.
