FEBRUARY is Paper Smooches Anniversary month, They are celebrating 6 years!  Be prepared for a TON of fun all through the month of February!


For my project, I used the brand new Celebrate Balloons Dies. Balloons are always a go-to for any celebratory card, so their versatility is a big win! Plus, I super love the big balloons. πŸ™‚

For this card, I die cut a bunch of balloons, and blended a little ink on each. Then I piled them on and added this cute little Bee from Courteous Cuties with the sentiment from Courteous Cuties 2 (and their dies). I think this Bee is ridiculously cute! Buzzzzz! πŸ™‚

I thought it would be fun to make another project for today. I kept this one simple by just using my favorite balloon from the new Celebrate Balloon dies and the You Are Loved die.
