What was your favourite toy?
My son is turning 9 next week (which is extremely hard to believe) and his favourite toys are Ninjago.
It's these little lego guys that (essentially) stand on tops and when you spin them you try to knock the other little Ninja off his top. They're pretty cool.
Anyhoo, of course with birthdays come... birthday parties. Woo Hoo! For parties to be fun you need people, and to get people you need...Invitations. I knew I wanted to make Ninjago invites for him, but suddently I realized that
it was only a week until the party - ACK! Stampin' Up comes to the rescue. Check these out:
It was a "good Mom day." Sometimes it's the little things, right? >sigh< >smile< >pat on back<
I designed, made, and delivered these so fast, you would not even believe it!
I used Real Red cardstock with the Chevron Embossing Folder for the background. For his head I used Daffodil Delight cardstock and the Apothecary Accent Framelit (then cut the ends off). His angry eyebrows are the wavy Bitty Banner Framelit (with the notches cut off either end). His eyes are just the 3/4" circle punch and the Itty bitty Shapes Circle Punch.
I had a lot of fun stepping out of my usual box and creating something unique just for my son. And, if it keeps me young...bonus :)
