A Mickey Birthday

Today is my sister-in-law's birthday and she is a serious Disney fan.  She grew up in California and could see Disneyland from her home.  She, my brother, and their two sweet daughters are in California as I type this! They also have a three-week vacation planned in Florida later this year with Disney World and a Disney cruise on the list!  So when I saw these Mickey balloons at Frantic Stamper, it was a no-brainer that they belonged in my collection. (The set also comes with a trio of balloons and balloon strings.  If you love Disney there are a number of options at Frantic Stamper including a frame with Mickey peeking out of a corner, and a series of Disney princess dies).

A Mickey Birthday

I have to credit Debby Hughes at Lime Doodle Design for this card layout.  She uses tags in the bottom corner somewhat regularly and I love it every time that I see it!

  • Ink: Simon Says Smoke
  • Accessories: Frantic Stamper Helium Balloon die, Simon Says Happy Die, WPlus9 tag die, Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins, Stampin' Up Hello Honey ribbon

It's always nice when you can personalize a card. And I do recognize Debby's tag style. You do it well.

I've been to Disneyland twice, eons ago, and have my fingers crossed that a third trip - with my niece and nephew in tow - will happen soon! How fabulous it will be to see their excitement! Your Mickey-themed card is fabulous; your sister-in-law will love it, as do I!

This is so cute! I'm sure she loved her card! This would work for my daughter too. Her nick name growning up was Mickey...so she still likes getting things with "Mickey" or the Name "Mickey on it.

What a perfect card for a Disney fan Kim - the red spotty Mickie balloon is awesome! Love the big "happy" die too. Totally cool!

Love the layout of this! I always love how Debby uses tags on her cards, too. This card is so fun. I have a Disney-loving sister-in-law as well. She'd go crazy over this.
