Yes...another party

My sister's oldest, Abie and my sister's youngest all have birthdays within two weeks of each other.  To make it easy on us, and the rest of the family, we combine their birthday parties every year.  I'm usually in charge of the invitations, which can sometimes be a bit of a challenge as her to kids are boys.  I've done a pretty good job at keeping the invites non gender specific, at least up until this point.  This year I had A LOT of lime green and aqua paper left over, from all of the slumber party stuff I made, so I went with that.

I used my Birthday Bash cartridge (again) and cut out the card base, which is a 5" circle.  The I popped up those presents.  How cute are they?  I feel like maybe they need something else, but I'm going to just let them be.
Someone the other day was talking about showing the insides of our cards.  I can't remember who it was though.  I feel like I'm showing you my underwear though when I show you the inside of the card.  I feel so exposed!  :)

The party isn't for a couple of weeks.  I have intentions of making a very simple Happy Birthday banner, but I'm not sure if I'll get to that or not.  Abie's birthday is Thursday and I have treats to make for her to take to school and a some other things to get to so we'll see.

I hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Cute invitation cards! How fun to throw a party! I wish the kids the best of birthdays! :)

  2. another cute invitation!
    i love to decorate the insides of my cards

  3. being in your underwear is better than being in one of those new airport scanners! LOL! I never show the inside of my cards (yours is great BTW). But that is because they are just ordinary (like granny panties to the cool girl's Victoria Secret).

  4. I never thought about showing the insides of my cards that way before...LOL. I'm not sure that I've ever shown mine either...not that I make a lot of cards. These invites are really cute - love the bright colors.

  5. Those are so cool! They definitely go either way :0) As far as the inside of the card showing, I sometimes feel the same way :0) Love the colors of the invites!

  6. Your underwear....I mean your inside of you card is lovely ;)
    Love your invite. Love those colours as well.
