...and September has left the building

September is one of the busiest months we have around here. Around the first the kids were still getting acclimated to school life (as was I), we had to run out and get additional school supplies based on the teachers needs for certain classes...middle school is still somewhat of an anomaly. Anyhow we get that under our belts and it's party planning central!!!

Two of our three girls were born in
September and one of them shares her b-day with my husband. There is also a niece and one of my three brother-in-laws named David (yes I have 3 BIL's named David)! lol In addition to our girls having parties there was a "Roe family" celebration, and I also have couple of dear friends that invited us out to celebrate them as well! September is exhausting!!! I always try to photograph the cards that I make, but I was lucky to make cards this month let alone capture everything that crossed my craft table.
My 5 year-old's party invite was made with the fun stamp set called Pony Party. Sadly I gave them all away thinking I would whip up one more "perfect" one to post here and save for the hasn't happened yet! BUT I did make a cute card for her that coordinates...too bad I didn't use my Stamp-a-Ma-jig to get the party hat centered just right, but it is a pretty pony nonetheless!

PAPER: Taken with Teal, Pink Passion, Summer Sun, Whisper White
INK: Encore Gold, Black StazOn, Bermuda Bay,
Pixie Pink
STAMPS: Friends Rock, Medallion, Pony Party

My daughter Sydney's party invite was inspired by my need to use up some things that I can no longer order or demonstrate with. I had this cute paper lying around that I knew I could work around and I came up with this sparkly creation that was easy to duplicate. Sadly I never followed though and gave her a card with her gift, but in my own defense I did endure a sleepover with EIGHT eight year-old girls which included a mini pedicure for each of them...good thing I had my 12 year old assistant! :)
Sorry about the crooked photo....I'm a mess!

PAPER: Misc patterned paper, Pink Pirouette, Apricot Appeal, Pink Passion
INK: Lavender Lace

STAMPS: Seriously Sassy

The card I made for my husband was fun to do. I love to distress things, and I really went to town edging this paper! I also busted out with my paper crimper, I should use it more often!
