Clean & Simple Balloon Bash Men’s Card

Mens Cards_ CAS Balloon Bash (3)

Here is the third of my trio of Men’s cards using Balloon Bash.

So staying on the Crumb Cake, Night of Navy & Old Olive colour theme.

Clean & Simple with sprinkles on top! Yes it has seriously got sprinkles….love this little stamp in the Balloon Bash set….

And now time for  a personal update…..

As many of you know I have been REALLY struggling with doing anything on the PC or crafting since I was involved in a minor Road Traffic accident in December.

Bit of whiplash then has caused me major pain if I spent more than 5 minutes on a PC… which has made even simple blogging difficult – and the writing up of tutorials virtually impossible!! Think I have managed 2 in the last 5 months… and they took me about 2 weeks each!

Well this week has finally seen some improvement…. I have been up to almost 20 minutes on the PC at a time and I have managed to sit down to craft rather than having to stand up all the time….

And as of this afternoon – I have a new chair to trial and a new set up for my PC etc.. I won’t bore you with details ….! But I can already feel such a difference! So finally I now realistically hope to be able to “catch up” with the many tutorials I have been asked for over the past few months. Thank you for being patient & keeping with me in the meantime!

So I am plotting a new series of Fancy Fold Fridays (and maybe even some Make it Mondays!) – in order to finally share the details with you…

I have a list of projects I am plotting to do & the order in which I will do them…. but if you have been desperate to know how to do a project I have published over the past 4 months and would like to email me or comment – then maybe that project will move up the priority list…..! Or in some cases go onto the List!


  1. I would love to see the tutorial for the Something Borrowed Tri Fold Mini Album as I want to make this project as a gift for a friend! Great news that you are able to spend more time on papercrafting and are in less pain. laura j

    1. Pleased to report that that one is at the top of the list Laura.... So should be coming soon....
