So first, St. Patrick's Day is coming up...so I have been busy filling orders for cards for St. Patty's Day. So far, I've only been able to finish 8 St. Patty's Day cards. Here they are...
Next, I've been working on my daughter's 1st birthday invitations! I'm having a blast with this! My husband originally wanted to buy pre-made invites, but I convinced him that people now expect me to make invites, thank yous, etc....and I really wanted to be able to tell my daughter that I made her invites for her 1st birthday. It's something special that I hope she loves when she is older. Her party is going to be a cupcake theme, and with the help of a friend by letting me borrow several of her Cricut cartridges and a couple stamp sets, I was able to make these adorable invites. I am really happy with the way they are turning out! I recently ran out of brown paper, so there was a little delay in finishing the rest of the invites. A quick trip to Michael's last night and I am ready to make the rest of the cards :)
|Hard to tell from the pic, but the paper is glittery :)|
A side note: When we were pregnant, my husband and I took a childbirth and parenting class through our local technical college. We met a lot of really nice couples and have stayed in touch with most of them, even after the babies were born. The babies are all about 8-11 months old now, and we get together often (sometimes weekly) and have play dates. The most enjoyed days are when we all meet up at the local Children's Museum. The kiddos have a blast playing with "new/different" toys and the mommas get a chance to get out of the house and talk to adults for once :) Well anyway...now that the babies 1st birthdays are coming up (my daughter's birthday is a month away....ahh!) ...I thought it would be fun to make birthday cards for all of the babies :)
I'm so glad I was able to take a moment, while my daughter is napping, to catch up with the cards I have been making. This was a pretty long post, but I hope you've enjoyed it! Thanks for reading!
