It was so fun to make a summertime theme card for the challenge today. My nephew's birthday was this past week so I used this theme to make him a fun card to celebrate his 13th birthday. Doesn't this card just scream summertime? I think so...
I made this card last week before I left for my trip. I am really enjoying learning about Singapore. It is a beautiful city - full of many cultures and people groups. A few interesting facts. Did you know that in Singapore if you want to own a car you must bid (in an auction) for a permit? The sales director in Singapore told us he bid $60,000.00 for his permit. Once you win the bid, you can then go out and buy your car. And the Toyota Camry he drove cost him $120,000 when he bought it 3 years ago new. Wow, that's a lot of money!!! The permit is valid for 10 years. The money they collect for the car permits goes to improving the public transportation. And gas prices here in Singapore are about $8.00 a gallon. I think I would be very motivated to skip the car and use public transportation, wouldn't you?
Attached is a photo I took this morning while walking around the city. Isn't it so pretty with the lush floral and fauna? I have more photos on yesterday's post if you want to see them and I'll post more after my sightseeing day.
Enjoy your day. Stay cool!
