Birthday Bonanza Suite

I seriously love these little guys…introducing the adorable Bonanza Buddies!
Bonanza-Buddies-5And seeing as I’m in Australia right now, I thought it would be fitting to show you some adorable koala bear cards.

I received this card sample from Lisa Althouse before I left. She used the little pompom image to create a background…Smoky Slate ink on Smoky Slate cardstock.  And the tag is a die that comes in the Bonanza Dies. Isn’t it sweet?
Bonanza-Buddies-3And we made this one at our team meeting in January. (The design is Bronwyn Eastley’s.) How cute is this??!! Mini easel cards!
Bonanza-Buddies-1This is what the card base looks like.
Bonanza-Buddies-2You can make so many different easel cards using these Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Before I go, maybe you want to see some REAL koala bears :) This was from our last trip to Australia. My husband took these! To see koalas in the wild is pretty rare. We were thrilled to say the least.

That’s all for today. I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Balloon Adventures

Don’t you just love the fun fonts used in the Balloon Adventures stamp set? And it’s always better when there are coordinating thinlits dies to cut the images out. Balloon-Adventures-1                                                      Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Bundle
                                                                               Price: $68.25

I recently received these beautiful cards in a leader swap I participated in.  This first one was created by Mimi Hemwood. I love the color combo…and the black overlay makes them POP so nicely. Balloon-Adventures-2Our family is definitely in for a year of adventures. First a grand baby…then we are traveling to visit our daughter and son-in-law in Australia at the end of March…and then we will be going to Thailand with Stampin’ Up! in July! Whoa. That’s A LOT of flying hours for a gal who doesn’t love flying…

This second card is cut out with the largest piece in the thinlits set. It cuts the balloons, frame, and banner out all in one piece. Brilliant! Karina Chin used Tip Top Taupe and Crushed Curry colors  for her design.Balloon-Adventures-3By purchasing this bundle, you will qualify for a free Sale-a-bration item.

And finally…a little updated picture from Huxley Gordon this week:) You see his little braced feet in this picture. Because he was a breach baby, he had loose hip joints. As a result he is in a soft body brace to keep especially his right hip joint in place. We are hoping he will only have to wear it for 6 weeks….we are almost half way there:) He doesn’t mind it at all. It was put on the day after he was born, so he doesn’t know anything different. Don’t you just love those eyes though?!Huxley Gordon 9Thanks for checking in today…
