JAI#147 - Just Add Balloons

Yay it's Friday ~

Over at Just Add Ink this week Trish has given us the challenge to add Balloons.  Gorgeous Kid goes to a few 'boy' birthdays so I decided to add birthday balloons.

This cutie pie guy is from Annabelle Stamps and his name is Li'l Monster.  I cheated a little with the image because normally he holds a really large sunflower.  I omitted that when inking him up.  I've used my copics to colour and heat embossed the balloons from the Party This Way stamp set with White ep.  The balloons have been fussy cut and raised on dimensionals.

Have a look over at JAI and check out the lovely design team inspiration this week.  You won't be disappointed.  I hope you find some time this weekend to get inky and join the challenge fun.  It could be just the break you need from all the Christmas preparations.

Wrist update - got my stitches out on Wednesday.  Hmmmm not so pleasant to have to look at my bruised and swollen wrist with the criss cross cuts in it.  It is nice to be able to wet it now though and I've been lathering on the moisturiser.  Dr hasn't cleared me to drive so I'm still house bound :(

Thanks for stopping by today.  Your comments cheer me up!


  1. He's sooooo cute! The balloons are such a clever addition and I just love that blue. Such a happy card. :)

  2. What a great idea to swap the sunflower for balloons!
    I'm glad that things are going well with your wrist - hopefully you'll be driving before you know it :)

  3. He is so cute, with his cap on sideways and that little tooth poking through, a fun stamp to use. Hope all is going well with your wrist, as long as it is healing good, in relation to being housebound, try and enjoy it, the roads are getting crazy now, as are the shops lol. Being home may be a blessing :) take care of yourself and try not to go stir crazy - hugs xx

  4. A lil monster for another lil monster how appropriate ;) Seriously now P, very cute! Love your embossed balloons particularly. Good to hear your wrist is making progress - you'll get there with the driving. xxx

  5. That image makes me smile everytime l see it P, the hat and eyes and of course the tooth are just so cheeky looking....great card!
    So glad you are a little more mobile, even though you can't use your pretty/sexy car...:0)xxx

  6. Wonderful happy birthday card. keep it up dear.

  7. The wee monster ALWAYS makes me smile the balloons, but I love more the way it makes me smile.....thanks. ooxx
