Today, my granddaughter turns 8 and she was very excited about her birthday party when I talked to her this morning. She lives on the West Coast, so we are unable to join in on the festivities, but we've been thinking about her and wishing her a happy, happy day.
Here's the card I made for her:
Patchwork Kit, and I colored it with my ProMarkers. I added a couple of Precious Hearts die-cuts by Memory Box. The circular stamp on the lower right was a freebie that I got a long time ago, and this is the first time I've used it. I cut the 8 with my Cricut, but I don't recall which cartridge I used.
My granddaughter told me this morning that she was having a sleep-over party. I remember those days! Sleep-overs usually mean a lot less sleep for the parents! Kids are always so excited that they stay up late and get up early. I'm hoping they can all get a nap tomorrow afternoon.
Even the ice sculptures had not yet been carved. We think they're waiting for colder weather so that they don't melt away. The Carnival continues for a few more days with the ice sculpture contest and a few more activities.
The first Winter Carnival took place in 1886 as a means of attracting people to Minnesota in the winter. Ha! I'm not sure it was all that affective. Thousands of Minnesotans continue to go to warmer climes at this time of year.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
