Hi everyone! Happy Sunday---it’s time for another Paper Players challenge, and I am the hostess today! Today, August 17, is a very special day—it’s Cassidy’s fourth birthday! So in honor of her, my challenge is a clean and simple child’s birthday card:
Isn’t that graphic awesome?! Thanks, Nance, for such a fun one to inspire us! I chose to make a one-layer card using a retired image from Turtle & Company:
I know that children don’t really care too much about their cards, unless they’re older kids and then they only care about what’s inside their cards! So, the simpler, the better! I stamped Mr. Turtle in Stazon black ink and colored him with various markers….quick and easy!
I did add some googly eyes from the Halloween kit that was in last year’s holiday mini…..it just adds a little whimsy to the card; I finished it off with a sentiment from Four You! And now, check out what the others created with my challenge:
And we hope you’ll play along too! You can find all the details as well as the samples at the Paper Players blog!
Here’s a little walk down memory lane:

And my daughter found this picture of the two of us, one of my favorites, taken when she was three months old:
Thanks for indulging me!
