I played with some more balloon shapes and arrangements this evening. This time I used some retired card stock - Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade, Not Quite Navy and Poppy Parade.
I found the easiest way to tie the strings and anchor them was to take another piece of twine and lay it under the balloon strings. Using a small piece of tape, anchor the ends below where you want to tie them. Tie the loose piece of twine around the balloon strings and make a bow. Remove the tape and use a mini glue dot to anchor the bow on the card front.
Another anniversary card. I used the Decorative Label punch for the tab with the sentiment.
On a couple of the cards I used a white gel pen to draw the strings for the balloons rather than using the twine.
Made these yummy veggies for supper tonight. Roasted Squash - zucchini, yellow squash, sweet red pepper and green onions. Topped with basil and mozzarella cheese.
Everyone else had spaghetti with the meatballs but I put some of the sauce on the roasted squash and had my meatballs on the side. Very good! Didn't miss the spaghetti or the carbs :-) The only bad thing was everyone liked the squash and there were not many leftovers. We will definitely have this again.
