Balloons, grass, fence and a boy

Hi everyone!

Weather is changing here, it was quite cool in the morning (very early morning) but then in the afternoon it was a typical DRY October. Yes chap sticks, Vaseline, lotions and especially cocoa butter cream are all on my dressing table now. That kind of month has started and I don’t like THIS kind of month because my skin is as dry as Sahara LOL. Is that even a comparison? Can I say that? Ha-ha. You know what I mean right?

The card that I have to show you today was made couple of weeks back. I have seen everyone making a belt around the card and decorating it with scalloped edges, ribbons and what not. This is my first attempt at the BELT card. LOL I hope this is what it is called! Hahaha

I have cut the circles out from a wrapping paper and as usual the flowers are hand drawn.

And this is the inside...
I am proud of the fence and the grass! It is the first time I have made them. I know that the fence is quite irregular, but then I have drawn it myself on a simple printer paper and pasted it on a card stock to make it a little stiff.
Bev sent me this stamped image :o)

I had to make it in a way to show as if a kid is giving the card to his mom. That is why I included balloons, grass etc... kid things...

Check out these balloons! LOL
The one at the top left, behind purple and green is way to oval!
The drawing was totally rough, I didn't do it neatly. My bad.

This card was made earlier otherwise I would have made the tree like Mel did HERE. Or almost like she did :-p
I am lovin my grass though! :o)

This is fabulous! And Erum, when things are imperfect, that's when they seem handmade!
I have the same image and I didn't know what to do with it.

Thanks for the inspiration!

There is no 'perfect' shape for a balloon ... they're all a little different ... just like yours. I love every single little detail ... another fabulous card.

It's all perfect! I love every last detail. You are so awesome! I'll have to try that belt card style sometime. It's adorable. I like your grass WAY better. It looks so real. And your tree is perfection too. SO cute! :O)

I forgot to tell you how grogeous the card above the little boy is. I love the flowers. All of you cards are always so perfectly designed.
