Simple balloon birthday card

My nephew's second child had a first birthday party a couple weeks ago and I went to the outdoor event and made this card. I free handed the balloon and raised it on foam squares and tied some twine to it.
The sentiment is from Stampin up.

For the inside, I used the small tag punch and free wrote O N E on each tag and taped it to string.
 I also added glitter glue to the balloon and random areas of the sentiment.

Best Wishes wedding card

My daughter asked me to create a card for her as she has a wedding next month.
Using SU bird punch and sentiment I came up with this, I used some glitter swirled wired ribbon.
The embossing on the teal layer and the heart are from Cuttlebug. I was trying to match the ribbon.

She asked thst I take off the extra leaves at tge top, ha I knew I went overboard!

Created clock from a charger plate

As soon as I saw this plate at Michael's Craft store, I knew I wanted to turn it into a clock for my kitchen.
The plate was 2.00 in which I used a coupon.
The clock kit was around 6.00

 I asked my son to drill out the center and added the clock assembly.
I didn't want numbers so I just cut 1" vinyl and turned them to look like diamonds.
