Cheers Card

Hi Stampers,

Boy this week has been a busy one . . . I'm sure life will slow down one day . . . right? :o)  Yesterday, on my lunch break, I finished designing Blake's birthday invites for his friends party.  This is the first year we are having a friends party and I am not sure who is more excited . . . me or Blake!  With preschool having spring break the first week in April I have to have all of the invites stamped and ready to go by Thursday!  Between prep work, two workshops this past week, family fun night at preschool and getting my basket swap all ready for the StampAttic's meeting on Saturday life has been crazy.

I am very please to announce that after Blake went to bed last night I got all of his invites stamped, and I only need to tie some hemp twine on them and print the inside before they are done.  Blake has been getting up early, so I am pretty sure I'll be able to finish them today before I head to the office.  I hope to get them done and share with you tomorrow.

Speaking of Blake's birthday party I do still need to design and stamp the invites for his family party.  The theme this year for both parties is pirates, so I ordered the Pirate Party kit from the catalog.  I plan on somehow using the invites that came with the kit for the family party, but I want to add to them.  My friend, Julia, was nice enough to let me borrow her retired stamp set, Ahoy Matey, so I have a cute little pirate to go with them.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for a picture of Blake's friends invite. . . until then I have a card sample to share with you from the Stampin' Up! website.
