  1. I am a little confused. Your Sunflower card is linked to your balloons card, and I would like to know how you created such uniform and wonderful petals for the Sunflowers. I really need to have a simple way to create these petals, as I teach a class at our local Senior Center, and having the pieces ready to go is a necessity. Could you please let me know what you did for this one?

    Sorry I’m so late, I had a busy day of track meets with our grandkids, but I didn’t want to pass up the chance to tell you this is a fabulous card Mary, good for boys and girls, just by changing the colors.
    This is a great bundle.

  7. Clean, simple and stunning. Truly a Mary Fish creation.

  8. Whwn using the balloon punch, what are the options for the strings?


    • Hi Robie: Excellent question. The Balloon Celebration stamp set has a single and multiple string image. I used the multiple string image on today’s card. You could use a marker to draw a gently curving line(s), too. I love the look of Baker’s Twine or Linen Thread for this purpose as an alternative. M

  9. Great suggestion, Frenchie. I hope to see the photos!
