Smile Have to toot my own horn!

I don't usually do this - but I have to toot my own horn today. I made a card for my 4-year old granddaughter's birthday, and I think it turned out so cute.

She (and her brothers and sisters, too) just love Angry Birds. They play the game, they have the little stuffed birds, etc. Today little Gloria was carrying around a folder from the game with the birds' pictures on it, like it was a priceless treasure.

I found some Angry Birds stickers at Walmart, and made her this birthday card. I know she will love it.

You made her feel so special. That's the kind of things that kids remember all their lives. The card is cute.

We're heading off to the birthday party at McDonalds (where else for a 4-year-old, lol) with some presents and the Birdie card!

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments.

Thanks to all again. Yes, she did love it. She actually squealed when she opened the card and clutched it to her cute little chest, lol. Four years old is a really great age. They tend to love everything.

About using stickers - I don't do it too much either, but have found they are great for making kids' cards. You can find popular themes in stickers that kids love for the moment, that you wouldn't want to buy a stamp for, if you could even find it in the first place.

We had a great party, and nobody cried. That's my criteria for kids parties - if no one cries, it's a great party.
