Mo's Carnival..."It is Over"

Hi all. Once upon a time my nephew came to visit me and do all fun things "Texan". He went to see his grown-up Cousin Joshua March in at Texas A&M and suffered the heat to watch the Aggies play football.

Then off to the Texas State Fair-the inspiration for this card. I honestly have NEVER seen anyone eat as much as this kid did he tried it all from deep fried bacon to funnel cake. SO in honor of one of my favorite memories I give you Mo's challenge-Carnival an ode to BEN!

Ben at the Carnival-with FOOD!
I was really excited to try this card form-it felt festive to me. This was my plan from the start. I think you can incorporate several of the carnival characters Mo offers on her site to the levels of the card for something different. Carnival stickers all food themed (cotton candy, candy apples, corn dog) of course with orange flags and coordinating paper to finish it off. The birthday greeting makes this a great boy card. Never easy to come up with for me.

I really needed the creative outlet today so I am glad this card came out so well...and then for fun and because it's not over until the fat lady more for the road...I vow to get better at the photos of my cards.


  1. Not sure if my last comment went through so here goes again! I was saying that I thought both cards were brilliant, I love teh shape of the first one but the fat lady is my fave image of all. :-) Thanks so much for joining us at Mo’s Carnival this week!
