Lemonade Birthday Invitation

Hello. I am excited to share my next project with you.

My daughter turns 10 next week (double digits!). Her favorite drink is lemonade, and believe me when I say it's no small exaggeration that she may have more lemonade running through her veins than the obvious. LOL We went back and forth, for a month, on the theme. Would it be unicorns or mermaids...but then one day, Izzy spotted some paper on my craft desk. She fell in love with it. But it was pastel and didn't really fit mermaid or unicorn, so after thinking about it for a day, I remembered that I had a new stamp set that I'd ordered the week before. It had invitation sentiments on it, and that pretty much sealed the deal.

So here's the invitation I created.

I blurred out our personal information, but you get the idea. I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest. You can find it here.

So I printed the information out on my printer, leaving appropriate spacing, and was able to print 6 out on 1 sheet of letter-sized cardstock. Then, I stamped the mason jar around the sentiment area and trimmed out with my fabulous micro-tip scissors. The straw, lemons and leaves were also stamped and fussy cut. I pulled some retired ribbon from my stash (I'll be honest...I was hoarding it). Turns out, I had just enough for 10 invitations!

The response I got was wonderful. Izzy nearly cried...she was so happy. So this Saturday, I will likely have a bunch of screaming girls running through the house. Stay tuned for other party projects I created. You won't want to miss them. So fun!

I would like to enter this into the current Sieze the Birthday challenge. It is only open for another 5 days, so hurry if you want to participate.

Happy crafting!
