Bugaboo Turns 4 Blog Hop

Hello all and welcome to the Bugaboo Stamps 4th Birthday Blog Hop!  If you came from
http://stampinvirgo5.blogspot.com/2014/01/bugaboo-4th-birthday-blog-hop.html
then you're in the right place.  If you're just visiting little ol' me, then let me encourage you to hop with us from the BEGINNING.  To kick things off, the first challenge this week is:
Let me share my birthday card with you (no designer paper, bling (earrings) and Bugaboo Image:
This is for Beanie who will be 7 years old this year (there are a total of 7 balloons on her card).  Crazy!  I know time goes by fast, but I didn't realize it was a light speed!!  My baby is growing up and no matter what I do, I can't stop it.  I've considered withholding food, but it seems that's frowned upon.
Bean won't actually receive this card until she's 18.  Inside I write my feelings, her accomplishments, any big adventures, and current likes in friends, music, and television.  Anyway, the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Itty Bitty Banners, the balloons are Cricut Cart George at 1 1/4", and the numbers are Mickey Font at 1".  My adorable image is: KIDZ Girl Balloon.

So, don't stop here!  Keep going:

Of course, blog hops are funner when prizes are involved.  You can get all the info at Catch the Bug, AND please leave me a comment for your chance to win the image I used on my card (I will pick one comment at random).

Thanks so much for hopping with us!!

I love to make fancy fold cards. This is so cute and meaningful with the 7 balloons, one for each year. I am expecting my first great granddaughter next month and your idea of holding the cards until she is older is pretty cool. Your daughter will so love them all. TFS your pretty card and this great idea.

My Baby turns 16 in May this year and my elder one is in her last year of school. They just grow up so fast! I love this idea of making a card each year and sharing it at age 18. Lovely step card - wish I could master these as well as you have done.
