This is my second great niece with a late September birthday, and she will be a GREAT big two-years old. I had the chance to spend a little time this spring getting acquainted with Addie, and she is a delight! She has such a funny little personality, and she is just as cute as she can be with her big blue eyes and her gigantic smile.
I just love making children's cards because they are so much fun, and it gives me a feeling of joyfulness during the entire process. It allows the years to slip away and brings back fun childhood memories. While in this nostalgic mood, I reminisced about how my brother and I used to look forward to Saturday morning cartoons, where one of our favorites was Mickey and Minnie Mouse and their adventures.
Thinking about Addie with her adventuresome personality, I thought it would be fun to make her a really cute, little, girly Minnie Mouse card, but I needed a little help getting my children's cardmaking mojo going after being on a sympathy card binge of late. I went on line to check out Minnie cards on Pinterest, but found there weren't a whole bunch to choose from. A few used embossing folder texturing and I like that idea, as it reminded me of my "happy birthday" embossing folder that I had used earlier this year on my young boy "Minion" card. With mojo arriving, I decided on a pink Minnie rather than the traditional red, adding to my desired girly look. Take a look below at my finished Minnie card inside and out! I think it will bring smiles and giggles of delight when viewed by its recipient.
