Boy's Birthday card

Having only grandsons, I'm always looking for boyish stamps as flowery ones would get a resounding "yuck" from them!  For my Sunday share, here's a card I made my grandson who's celebrating his 5th birthday today.   May has been a particularly busy month for birthdays.  The stamp set I used for this card is one from my personal stash  and fitted the bill.  The birthday greeting is from Happiest Birthday Wishes - a Hostess set.

This is the inside of the card.  It is a little unusual to cover both the top and bottom panels, but I needed extra space for the balloons.  The Up, Up & Away stamp set (from our new summer mini) were stamped as party balloons rather than a hot air one - works a treat and the name was stamped with Perfect Alphabet which I think has retired.

I tend to hang on to all my alphabet sets - they come in useful for scrapbooking because I like different fonts for my layouts.  Come to think of it, I've hung on to too many stamps in general and ought to have a clear out soon, so a mammoth Stampfest Sale will be coming soon.  Watch this space!
