Surprise . . . it's another Birthday!

Happy Sugar Nellie Monday, m'darlins! I've been busy working on lots and lots of art projects . . . sketching and watercolors and I'm even dabbling a bit with oil paints!! AND . . . I've been making cards, of course!! Soooo . . . I'm back with another cute DT project! Well . . . I think it's cute!! What do you think?
This week's card is for my daughter-in-law . . . who is mother to three of our five granddaughters! I've always loved this sweet little stamp . . .  it's called "Peek-a-Boo" and you can find it HERE at Funky Kits! Here's a close-up . . .
I wasn't quite sure how I was going to color those balloons . . . but that's the beauty of Copics . . . they're so sheer!! I really like how the balloons turned out!! Here's a side view . . .
