Birthday Invites

My son's birthday was this past weekend. He loves football and always has a bunch of friends over for his birthday party. Needless to say, all they do is play football. It makes for an easy event for me! Here is the invitation that I created for his party. Since it is a bunch of kids, AND boys, to save a little paper (since you know they just get thrown away) the invitation is sort of a postcard.

I found this idea from Tanya Boser on Stampin' Connection.

The base is Crumb Cake. I used the 'Go Team' image from the retired set Sporting and stamped it in Crumb Cake to create a background. I used the football image from the retired set Just Football. These are two sets that I cannot part with for obvious reasons! I traced around the base and the football with my Basic Black marker. On the back of the card is all the birthday party information. He was pleased.  :)

WOW! It sure has been a while since I last posted. Sorry!  :(  This time of year is really busy for my family. My husband coaches 7th and 8th grade football and helps with my son's team also. That means practice for him 4 nights a week with two of those nights lasting until 7:00, unless there is a game which means a MUCH later night! Then, my daughter plays basketball at 2 different places, so that is 2 nights a week of basketball. All of that equals not very much time for me or stamping. {sad face} But....... 7th and 8th grade football is over, my son's football is over, and my daughter is down to basketball one night a week. YAY! That means more family time and hopefully more stamping time!! WHOO HOO!

Anyway, here is a card that I made at an event held a while back by my awesome upline Tiffany Bauer.

I really like this card and decided to use the design and recreate it with different DSP. Here is my version:

I just love the bright, bold colors of this card! I miss this DSP.
