Celebrate Sweet n' Sassy Style!

This is a card I created using the birthday set from Sweet n' Sassy. I paper pieced the balloons using new paper from Making Memories. I inked the edges and added glitter to them. I added "string" to the balloons! The polk a dot paper is also Making Memories. I machine stitched it. I added some black ribbon. The Celebrate metal sign was actually red, so I painted it white. I painted it several times, while the last coat was still wet, I sprinkled glitter on it.



On a personal note, Cort's chair is STILL not right! The back is coming off and completely loose! And to top it off, I called the wheelchair company last Thursday, yesterday and again today! No return call. So my daughter's therapist recommended that I threaten them and tell them that I will call the insurance company about this faulty chair. This is a huge liability for them and the wheelchair company if something happened. Hopefully tomorrow I will get a call back! So AGGRAVATING! UGH!

Enough venting........back to my "happy" place.......

Chele, call them and totally threaten them, this is long enough and way more grief than you should have to deal with!
Love that card (glitter and all)!
