It's my party...

Happy Saturday everyone!

I hope you are getting a chance to enjoy some lovely spring weather this weekend. The apple trees are starting to blossom around here and I love to just go outside and take a few big breaths because the air really does smell sweeter this time of year... simple pleasures I'm tellin' ya! :)

So I made this special card for a dear blogging friend of mine who recently celebrated her birthday. And I totally colored up this brand spankin' new Balloon Kaylee to look like the birthday girl... hopefully she likes it! LOL
Did y'all see that the first release of clear stamps at Some Odd Girl are now available in the SOG store? Kristy has taken some fave digis and turned them into stamps but a couple of the new images are exclusive to the stamp line and Balloon Kaylee is one of those. I think she is such a fun looking party girl and I couldn't help but pair her up with a couple of very sweet friends. Seriously, I could totally go for a giant cotton candy like that... YUM! Both the papers and treat stamps are Basic Grey and the quirky, cute look of them seemed like such a great match to the Some Odd Girl vibe that I just couldn't resist putting the two together. Yep, I think they are crafty BFFs! ;)

Ok, time for me to scoot... I've got the weekend off and big plans to help my mom with her garden for Mother's Day.
Have a good one! :)

Hi Amy. This is so cute! I am sure your friend is going to love how sweet this is. I so agree with you on this time of year. Even though I love the summer for swimming spring is sooo sweet and I love the fact that you can go outside without a coat and not freeze or get heatstroke. lol... Wish your Mom a Happy Mother's Day from me. Have fun with the garden and enjoy your weekend off. Hugs, Lisa
