Aloha. How’re you this Thursday? It’s already in the mid-60’s this late morning. The east bay is expecting high 70’s today during this week of warm temperatures. Mahalo plenty for your drop-ins. I have had no mojo to knit in the past, two weeks which is why it’s been quiet around here, but it’s slowly coming back.
Today is a quickie. You already read about my second nephew’s red egg and ginger party here.
Side Note: I just realized in the last post or so that WP does present the word(s) of a link in a blue color, so I won’t be purposely changing the color of text to do so anymore.
I had a small contribution to A’s party. You see here one of the six table cards.
I had originally wanted to make something a little fancy with 3-D die-cuts but there’s not much out there for monkeys and bananas; one stamp company had a set of Chinese Zodiac animals but I figured they weren’t worth it for a one time use.
So instead, I decided to make a fancier style of card that would be creative and have some oomph for my nephew’s party. I used this great, simple tutorial as my guide as I had figured out my own dimensions.

I was pleased at how these table cards came out. They were fresh and modern in shades of blue for a baby boy. I hope you’re having a good day. Mahalo for visiting. Until our next chat, TTYL. Aloha.
