Moriah likes to "do themes" for her children's birthdays -- and the theme for Preston's first birthday is "CIRCUS." I am sure, knowing her as I do, that the birthday decor will be PHENOMENAL!! (No, she didn't get her "over the top" party enthusiasm from her mother -- but I surely enjoy observing the PURE THRILL that her children feel at Party Time!)

I made a LARGE card for our lil guy -- and will likely have to use wrapping paper to construct an envelope to fit it. Preston's party is Monday night, so I'll make the envie tomorrow.

Grandpa and I will write our messages "in the grass," so I left some "sparse" area for that purpose. I used my PrintMaster software for the balloon sentiments and the banner on the front, then used a Sizzix die to cut the balloon shapes. After we sign, I may add some 3-D "circus animal" stickers to the inside. We'll see.


  1. Awww, what a fabulous card, Debbie! This is going to make little Preston so happy! Love the big size and love the personalized banner. And those balloons are just so, so perfect!

  2. Oh WOW, that did turn out great! I am sure that lil Preston will love his card. Happy Birthday Preston!
