My oldest daughter is turning seven. Seven. I swear she was just turning one. Where does the time go?
She’s not really into any characters these days so we some brainstormed together to come up with a theme. We both love to come up with party ideas and do so often. Thinking of all the different decorations and treats we can imagine for different party ideas while riding in the car is a fun game we like to do together. Sometimes my son likes to get in on it too. They impress me with some of the creative ideas they come up with. When we did this with Care Bears, both of us came up with lots of fun ideas so we went with the cute little cuddly residents from Care-a-Lot.
I used my beloved Cricut to make the invitations. The sun and cloud cuts are from the Create a Critter cartridge. I made the wording sun circle swivel so it can go behind the clouds. I thought first graders would get a kick out of that.
The ribbon rainbow isn’t as spectacular as I wanted it to be but I decided to save my funds and use supplies from my stash instead of buying new supplies to get the look I’d designed out.
I found the Care Bear images online and had them printed on a quality color printer then hand-cut them out. I was going to design my own bears but decided that you just don’t mess with an old-school icon.
