It's a numbers game



Morning all, time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Wendy would like us to add numbers to our work. Our sponsor is Marianne Designs.

My apologies I've been a bit lacking on the blogging front, but I am knee deep in Tattered Lace work for several shows coming up the first couple of weeks of October. I am easily distracted into blogland so have to be firm with myself and stick with it otherwise I know I won't get my samples made in time. But promise I will be round as soon as I get caught up with everything.

It's a pretty simple card from me, bright design papers, a computer generated sentiment and some balloons cut on the Cricut and tied with twine. Not much more to say about it really.

Have a good weekend.

Better keep it simple and clean for the men... They don't seem to appreciate acres of lacy stuff for some reason! The design is good and the balloons with real string are perfect for a birthday card. Have a good (and productive) week end Brenda. xx

Great card Brenda. A perfect male card.
Hope the DT work is going well. I find blogland a huge distraction too. A quick look usually turns into a few hours with me.
Take care

Such a sweet card! Happy Birthday to Zachary! I would absolutely love to help out with Tattered Lace but I'm across the pond so it would be kind of hard to pop over and help you out. Hope you're feeling well. Hugs, Robin

Beautiful design with the balloons. I don't get around in blogland as much as I used to, partly because I'm not in front of my computer and I agree with you that I get distracted and time flies by with nothing done ! Goodluck with the prep for the Tattered Lace work, I'm sure they will be gorgeous :) xx
