Hello again, my friends. I have a quick post to show off a card I made for my niece's 11th birthday party Saturday. Her birthday theme this year is "Paris".
My sister-in-law called me earlier this week and asked me to try and find a game or two for the girls to play at her party. I spent over 4 hours searching online to try and find some Parisian games for them to play. I couldn't find anything other than matching up the French word with the English word or famous people and places of France. I knew those wouldn't work so I wracked my brain and the only thing I could come up with was Pin the Tail on the Poodle. Yeah, kinda childish right? Well, when my SIL told my niece what I had found, she was absolutely thrilled. I couldn't believe it. She actually wants to play this game. Yeah auntie..lol So, I Googled "Digital Images of Poodles" and let me tell you, you had better be prepared for what comes up. I was totally shocked at some of the images that were displayed. X-rated for sure. Be careful what you Google. So, I looked through some of the digital stamp companies and found this cute little image from Meljen's.
This is the card I made for Trinity. I used Recollections All Girl paper pad for the DP and added some black pearls. The sentiment is my own and I used my Crayolas to color it in. I used Coordinations card stock for the mats and the card base. For the game, I enlarged the image to 8x11 and printed it out onto white card stock and pink card stock. I cut around all the areas that are pink on the card and paper pieced them onto the game board. I then cut out some black tail poms and numbered them for the girls. I can't wait to see them play it. Being as large as it is, if Trinity decides to keep it, she can frame it and hang it on her wall.
Here's a picture of the game board:
I sure hope they have a great time playing tomorrow.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope y'all have a great day! God bless y'all.
