watercolor balloon thank you card








These cards are a simple and personal way to say thank you for a birthday gift. You can download a free printable of my type design here, then use watercolors to paint in the balloon.

I find it very satisfying to step away from the computer a bit and make something (if only partially) with your hands. If Rowan was a bit older, I would have him make these. I think I child's touch would make the super special.

  1. I wish I had half your talent Lisa! These cards are STUNNING. Now, I can't promise you I am going to be able to "color in the lines" but I am going to try and let you know how I get on.... ;)

    1. thank you! Glad you like them. I am a terrible artist but it was easy to just draw a circle and it doesn't really matter if it is not perfect, actually I think it is better.

  6. I think a child's touch makes things even more special too. These are great, and something I would consider doing w/my middle gal who loves to decorate and create things.

  9. I agree on stepping away from the computer. I like that I have a mix in the day of sewing and designing, and then all of my computer tasks, including writing. It's a good blend:)
