1st Birthday

I have made a 1st Birthday card today.  I usually go for bright colours but I wanted to use some pastel shades for this card so I got out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers today.

I added some Glossy Accents to the '1' after I had taken this photo as I was afraid I would blob it all over the balloon & ruin it, but I managed not to.
Baby's First Birthday made using WPlus9 Unforgettable
My niece's baby won't be one until November and I will have to make another card for that occasion as I know she reads my blog and Instagram feed!  So as I don't know any other babies who will be having their first birthday soon, I will have to hang onto it until someone I know needs one.
My craft room ended up looking like a tornado had whirled through it after I had finished 'being creative'  Funnily enough my husbean who was 'being creative' with wood out in the garage said the same tornado whizzed through there too!  We have both had to have a good tidy up. :-)  And it was so nice seeing that the amazing Jennifer McGuire posted a photo on Instagram the other day showing how messy her craft room gets when she creates - I often wondered!
