I'm Baaack!! :)

I can't believe it has been 3 weeks since my last post! December proved to be very busy & then very lazy! I had a big birthday party for my Mom on the 17th, so getting ready for that, the craft show, then Christmas, not to mention all the little celebrations in between, by the time it was all over...we didn't want to do anything!! I didn't craft for more than 2 weeks (GASP!!!) But on Tuesday I FINALLY stepped back in and crafted ALL DAY!! Boy did I miss it! And now I have a birthday party order (which I will get to in a minute...) a cork board & banner set, and our monthly stamp club is coming up! So there will be plenty to be posting about all that in the next few weeks!

I also took the month of December off from my DT's and am ready to jump back in full force! We have a blog hop coming up this weekend & it was just what I needed to get to get me back on track! So starting next week, be sure to look out for DT posts also! :)

Back to the birthday party invitations...She is having her sons (5 yrs old) party at Chuck E. Cheese, so of course I HAD to do pizza invites!! I truly love how they turned out! I have been sending pics to her to show her son & he just gets so excited to see them! They had come over before Christmas to pick up the Christmas orders and he asked when I would be starting his invites! Gotta love it! A 5 yr old wanting MY invites! :) And to know he is excited about them, makes me make sure every detail is perfect!

Here are the toppings all ready to go...I inked all the edges with a chestnut ink (in the pic the "peppers" & "pepperoni" aren't inked yet)

And here are the final invites! The invitation wording will be on the back...
I used "Simply Charmed" on my Gypsy and hid some of the features before cutting everything out at 4.75". I inked the "cheese" layer with Cranberry Crisp for the pizza sauce effect! I can't wait to make the party favors!! I have 2 ideas and will be finalizing them next week, so be sure to stay tuned for those!

I want to thank everyone for sticking it out over the holidays and coming back! I know everyone has been super busy and I know I for one am ready for the new year and all that it may bring! :)

Tomorrow I will be showing some more of my Pre-Christmas crafting and then on Sunday...BLOG HOP time!!

Until next time...
