As we continue along the way at Path of Positivity, we are exploring Family Ties. We are creating projects that show one of our own family connections. I chose to create a card for my son who just happens to have a birthday TODAY!! I am also showing another one of the attributes that connects my family...
FOOD! Sweets in particular! We can't have a big family meal without dessert, and there are always twice as many desserts as there are side dishes!
Cake is a big one in our family for special occasions! If there is a birthday within weeks of a dinner, there's a big cake!
Yeah, we're all great eaters and food brings us together for all the holidays!
Come share your ideas of this theme at Path of Positivity!

This card was so fun to make for my son. Keith is in his late 20's, so making a card for him can be tough. This sentiment was just the ticket (hee hee) for a perfect card! I went with balloon stencils I cut on my Cricut and inked with Blues, Tans, and Greens. Then the 'oops' happened...
I was stamping another project in the middle of this one and my black ink lid went down on my balloons! UGH!! Breathe,,,,I can fix this...hmmmm. Of course, this is for Keith. This is a farm kid who works on cars, rides horses, and wears cowboy boots 7 out of 7 days. I'll just put a few grunge marks on there! Whew!
I colored the ticket sentiment from Scribbles Designs with Copic Markers, cut a couple of back up tickets, and embossed the kraft paper ticket. I inked that one to show off the embossing a bit more.
I added a metal eyelet and gold/tan ribbon.
