Smile It's A Great Day!

CLICK HERE TO ENTER MY 500 FOLLOWER CRICUT CART GIVEAWAY!

Happy Friday, everyone! Wow, this week has flown by. I can't believe another weekend is almost upon us. Time flies when you are so busy you barely have time to craft. I need about five more hours in the day :) I do have a project for the Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #4 - Kid-Themed Birthday Party. For my project, I made a joint game/birthday card. I made one of these for my niece's birthday a couple of months ago but I used a dog since she loves dogs. For this party, I made a traditional donkey for the game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
I used Birthday Bash and cut the donkey at 9 1/4"  first on cardboard to make it sturdy, and then Core'dinations Core Couture. The stamps are from K Andrew's Food for Thought. These stamps are so awesome! They stamp perfectly, you can bend them to fit the design (I curved the bottom phrase) and she donates at least $1 from every single package to charity. How great is that?! Click HERE to learn more about these great stamps or to purchase your own set.
I added a blanket on the donkey that lifts up so you can write the message below. It's fastened closed with velcro. The tail attaches with re-positional tape so it can be used for Pin the Tail on the Donkey. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend! :D
