And here is the full set.

Birthday card set

Cardstock: Delightful Daffodils and Tempting Turquoise from SU

Accessories: Stripe Embossing folder from SU, Up Up and Away dies from Papertrey Ink, Buttons also from Papertrey Ink. String from stash.

Today is one of those concerned mother day! 
1.We rescued a baby bird last evening but the bird did not make it this morning :( Aditi, my daughter was crying when she found out. Dealt with that.
2. Then my son's friend is travelling by himself by train (6 hours journey) to stay with us for 3 days. First trip by himself and he was upset 10 minutes into the journey and wanted to get down! Frantic phone calls by the train crew!!!! Spoke to the boy and settled him. Poor thing he is only 12 years. He looks big and grown up but still kid at heart. 
3. Then Charlie my puppy had to go to creche today to get used to te environment as he has to stay there for 4 days end of this week and he was all stressed out. Poor thing, there were lots of big dogs barking and Charlie is not used to it. Finally got him his blanket, toys and one of my tee shirts. Then he settled.
  Now you can see why I said my day is a "concerned mother" day! Just too much to handle in a matter of 4 hours in the morning! Anyway, all is fine now. One more hour till the train arrives. Then I will have three tween boys to look after :) Food is all stocked, games to play, movies to see and trips planned. I am organised I think!
Thanks for visiting and listening too :)
Have a great day!

What a wonderful card set--so colorful. I never think to cut those hot air balloons out of patterned paper, but it is such a great idea. You know they say that as a mother, you are only as happy as your least happy child. I think it must be true for pets as well. Here's wishing happiness to all your family members and guests.

Gorgeous set of cards. Love those hot air balloons from pattern papers.
You sure have had a stressful morning. Hope your day improves.
Try to find some crafting time to destress. Might be impossible with the 3 boys. Hehe
