Good Morning! This is a special weekend in our household. We're celebrating my Luke's 6th Birthday! I can hardly believe my little man is already 6 years old! Where does the time go?
Unfortunately, we're still undergoing some disruptive home renovations (our new hardwood is being installed as I type this), so I was unable to throw Luke the usual HUGE Birthday bash. But that didn't stop us from having some Birthday fun. We had cards and presents, a special make-your-own-pizza night (as per the Birthday Boy's request), AND my sweet Abigail learned to play Happy Birthday on the piano (while singing along!) and she treated us to a performance of that AND It's a Small World. Luke was a happy boy. :)
For his card, I wanted to make something that was specifically for HIM. He's really into Mario Brothers lately (he even dressed as Mario for Halloween), so I went with it.
I made him an over-sized easel card. It's 8" x 5 1/2" - I needed to fit all those Mario characters in there! Unfortunately, Cricut does not have a cartridge with Mario and friends, and I was unable to find any digis either. SO, I found some clipart pictures here, printed them on my computer, and hand-cut them out. I tried to create a "Mario-like" scene like you would find on the video game. Apparently I succeeded because Luke LOVED it! :)
I'm entering this into the Birthday Sundaes Challenge (Anything Goes) and the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes).
Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful day!
