Amazing Birthday Balloon Punch Art (& Fall Harvest Orchard Memories)

We've got several birthday's in October here at the Olchefske house.  This weekend the boys were over and we did a little card making after a day at the Apple Orchard.  They picked the colors (Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise) and I selected the stamp set...Amazing Birthday.  I wish I had gotten a picture of their cards before they sealed them in the envelopes, as they did an amazing job.  So today, you'll just get to see my card.

I think this would make a great basic layout for this stamp set.  Just switch out the balloons for a cupcake, party hat, triangle banner, etc.   I've put together a project sheet PDF for you (with supply list, measurements and instructions).  Feel free to print it out and use it to create your own Amazing Birthday Cards

A day at the Fall Harvest Orchard

Every fall we take Max and Sam to the local apple orchards.  There are many to choose from in MN.  But one of our favorites was the Fall Harvest Orchard in Delano.  This summer the owner past away and the family has decided to sell, so this will be the last season.




The orchard holds a special place in our hearts, as it was the first one we took Max to six years ago.   I remember him looking at the newborn baby chicks in awe.  We took the same picture of him every year.  Look how much he's grown.  We'll miss going there every fall.
