Balloon make a wish.....

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
Is it really a Happy Monday? Not sure yet! LOL
I have some running around to do before
I head off to work - Hoping this week I'll 
get my work groove back, since I took a nice long break... :)

I did however have some fun on the weekend....
Took the Family out to dinner & a little shopping on
Saturday, then on Sunday I spent the day in my kitchen
Making Breakfast (French Toast with Bacon) YUMMY
Then got dinner in the crock pot (Garlic Chicken & Red Potatoes)
Then I decided to make some Almond Joy cookies -
Which turned out AWESOME! - Then thought hummmm
Let's make some Ice Cream - and then I did that! 
Of course the Ice Cream will be for tonight! (Salted Caramel) 
I actually made my own Salted Caramel - It turned out soooo GOOD!
Can't wait til tonight for some of that ice cream! LOL 

After all that fun baking/cooking I realized, I needed
to re-organize my spice cabinet! UGH! I got it done
& it looks good! hahaha -- I even managed to work on a puzzle
as well... I tell ya... I think I like the laid back me - not
in a hurry to get on my computer to do blogging stuff or
Facebook stuff.... I'm going to try & do it more often.... :)

Well.... after ALL that Rambling, I thought I would share
another Birthday card I made for the School Staff --

This was super Quick & Easy to make since I used a 
file in the Silhouette Store (#134645) - The Designer Paper
& Embellishments are from Simple Stories (Let's Party) Paper Collection
I added Dimensional Layers, so the Balloons would pop up
The Cardstock is Stampin' Up, Bazzill, & American Crafts &
I used a Stitched Card Mat Die from My Favorite Things

I wanted this to be a universal type of card, so the Teacher
in charge of giving out the Birthday cards, didn't have to worry if
it was to masculine or feminine to give too someone - :)

I do love the balloons with the assorted papers - Just
feels like a HAPPY Card! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
