Free Animal Balloons Digi


I woke up this morning to SNOW! We've been having +17 degree temps...so it was a surprise! It's supposed to get sunny this afternoon so it will likely melt away. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

To help things along a bit, I thought I'd make some balloon animals, just to send the message that 

HEY, it's spring~
~enough with the snow already!

I did the balloon strings and balloons separately. It'll mean some fussy cutting, but it's fun to have creative license. Print the plain balloons on designer paper or book paper...for something different.

I drew in the face of one of the bunnies, but the other animals are all yours to play with! 

I have a couple of cards made, but I'll show you those later this week! 

Wishing you sunshine and smiles!


  1. Hey Carmen what a brilliant idea! I love the little dog! You often inspire me to go and creat something!

  2. Thanks for the cute balloons Carmen.
