Hooray!

Hello everyone!
I’m back with a quick post...
When I saw Laurel Beard’s Shaker Card for this week’s Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp, I was inspired to open my new balloon dies, and give it a try. I used ‘hot pink’ for the background, and I also created a matching pink pencil case with my PTI Coin Purse Die (since it’s my sweet granddaughter Desi’s birthday this week and she LOVES pink!).




 
I used several dies for this project, so I would also like to link it up to Virginia’s View Current Challenge, to use Dies.

So, that’s it for me today...Thanks so much for stopping by ~
Barb
