For the first time ever, First Born is getting to have a birthday party! I don't recall what brought it about but I think she asked for a party and we did not recoil from the thought. I feverishly worked on making invitations so she could bring them to school last Friday, only to find out that it was yet another day off for the kids!
No doubt, you could suggest that I simply use store bought invitations, but my gosh, with a room full of stuff, how could I resort to something else? At a minimum, I had to make a simple card (many times) if just to say that this hobby has some use outside of being creative and having fun!
Yep, I used Birthday Bash, my most beloved and most frequently used cartridge in my collection. I would like to share a tip with you. Instead of cutting the beige cheek + ears and the black eyes + nose, I drew them using markers. It is very difficult to get a really good cut of these small pieces, so I color them in to make life simpler. This issue is not exclusive to the Cricut machine, cutting a dot is challenging with Cameo as well.
Now it's time to relax after a very exhausting (as usual) cardio kick this morning. Tomorrow will be spent at the pool waiting and waiting for First Born to swim her races. I just might miss most of the Superbowl activities tomorrow! I still need to figure out who I would like to see win.
