Curious George

Good Morning,

I hope everyone is having a great day. I am up early before the family, which gives me some quiet computer time. : ) I wanted to share this card I made for a co-worker. She asked for a birthday card for a 3 year old that loves Dora the Explorer and Curious George.

First, I thought about a backback (that song just sticks in your head), but I decided on Curious George (and the man in the yellow hat) because he in so much fun.

Everyday Paper Dolls ~ farmer hat cut at 3"
Celebrations ~ present
Hannah Montana ~ personalized name cut at 1/2"
embossed rainbow cardstock
speckled paper from Birthday Wishes paper pad
black, brown, yellow, and cream cardstock
yellow ribbon
wiggly eyes

My husband's 40th birthday was the other day ~ we are only 10 days apart and he loves to make jokes during that time. I knew he did not want a "cutesy" card, so...I turned to the 40's quote site.

The boys are camping this weekend, so my goal is to make cards, do some blog hops if there are any, and visit as many crafty friends I can. I will be by soon!

Enjoy your day,
