Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers for our humour challenge. Thanks also for bearing with us with the link moderating thing. Sadly it became necessary because of the large number of people who appeared to not have bothered to read our challenge requirements.

Love the sentiment. You just get the feeling that old grumpasaurus there will HATE having a glittery balloon! Fab design, love the colour palette, and your colouring is gorgeous.

Good luck!
