So, I told you guys that I have a 6 bday cards to make in January. 5 of our 9 nieces and nephews have a birthday in January. Don't know what magic April must have LOL!
So I worked on these cards today.

I do not have anything else I can use for boys cards. I desperately need something!!!
So I used the retired KIDS AT PLAY SU set. The balloons are from a different retired SU set, which I don't have a name for. The Sentiment is a clear G Studio stamp. I have not used clear stamps much yet. I seem to have trouble with them using SU classic ink. So I used a COLORBOX pigment ink with it, which seemed to work okay. Glad it worked, but I'm not sure what ink I will use if I want to use a different color. Just happened to have this color that worked for me.
I'm kind of glad that these cards are for boys. I just was not able to come up with anything to embellish them. Seems like when PMS hits, it hits hard and takes any mojo I have with it.
I used the SCS sketch challenge 158 for the card layout. When I first saw the layout, I didn't think I would be able to work with it, but I decided to try it today.
Have a great weekend everybody!!
