South Hill Designs – Purples and Blue Balloons
Hello hello! Happy Sunday everyone! Are you having a cozy day in today? We’ve had more flooding up here in North Wales for the last few days, so the boys and I are planning a day at home, in the warm, with the heating turned up.
We don’t get snow round here, although I can see it on the mountains, but that means we just get the dreary drudgy wet. Yuck!
So I did struggle a little today with the card for my South Hill Designs and Stampin’ Up! mash up, but I went with some fun of balloons and celebrations. Not because we have any up in our house, but I feel that when the Christmas decorations come down, it can feel a bit blue around here, so we try and do stuff to cheer ourselves up.
I love the Balloon Celebration stamp set, and while we mostly think of bright colours for balloons, Sara Douglass (Acting CEO of Stampin’ Up!) told us in November at Centre Stage that the stamp set was thought of for softer paler colours rather than the brights of say kid’s party balloons.
I took her literally hence my soft Wisteria Wonder and the stamped-off Bermuda Bay.
So today, with a little Wink of Stella to accent the card, my boys and I shall be having a day of playing board games, watching movies and celebrating the coming year and changing times. And of course, we shall eat cake too. Although I do have to make it first..!
Happy Sunday everyone, no matter what you’re doing.
