The Party Countdown

Well my first baby turns 10 next week -- where does the time go? Yesterday we tried to get the invitations JUST RIGHT -- :) My first draft was a no-go, but then I created this card & she loved it. YEAHHHH!!!!

She loves purple, so I went with Almost Amethyst :) and added a bit of So Saffron. I used the circle punches to create the '10' tag using the metallic silver paper. Next Saturday is going to be a full day/night with the girls, but SO MUCH fun too. Megan can hardly wait. She took her invitations to school today to hand them out. So fun. I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo, but for the flower centers I used some Platinum liquid pearls. Just adds a little sparkle & texture. Felt good to stamp up some cards -- been scrappin' like crazy the past while (ok, crazy is stretching it, but for me... a lot more than usual) :) LOL. Weekend is here - yeah!! I got my run in this morning even though my head cold seems to be winning the fight. I keep telling myself I'm NOT sick. Being a Mamma though & having your sick babies coughing & sneezing directly into your face is cause for concern :) Crossing my fingers I'll keep it at bay -- sounds like I could milk it for some extra sleep time though -- don't you think? ;-)

I LOVE it!!! I don't have that hostess set but everytime I see a card made with it I wonder why I don't just get it!

Your little/big girl is so lucky to have a mom that can "whip" these up for her.

Now don't forget to scrap a page using the invitation!
