My projects for you today include the following events: January 4th - Trivia Day. For my card, I went to the internet and googled "trivia" which gave me the front of my card. Background paper is cut from Generation Tech Stack. The inside of the card, I added some scrappies along with giving the information regarding trivia day!!!!
My second card for you is Martin Luther King Jr. Day which is January 16th. I stamped a butterfly from Jenni Bowlin Studio and then colored with my Prisma pencils. I also added the word "Dream" from Studio 112 which was inspired from Martin Luther King's speech, "I have a Dream" but it was made into a notecard for a special friend!!!
My third card is for National Popcorn Day is January 19th - what a great date night, movie and a box of popcorn to share! The background was cut from The Snack Stack. Doesn't the popcorn look yummy, extra butter just as I like it!! The popcorn box was cut using Make the Cut and placed on a black background as a pop-up card with pieces of the popcorn cut from the scraps around the popcorn box!
My fourth and final card is for Opposite Day on January 24th which is a fun event where everything you say is the opposite of what you mean!!! The front of my card, I did various Cricut cuts for night/day, ying/yang, up/down, black/white. The inside of the card, I have wished you a "unhappy opposite day" with big/little and circle/square! This is a fun event/holiday for kids as they really get into this!!!
Now, how cute would it be to send any of these cards to an adorable youngster or set up a special date night theme?
