Invitations decided!

After stressing for a couple of weeks about what I was going to do for invitations for my son's 2nd birthday in May I have finally decided on which one to mass produce as of last night! I'd love to hear what you think about them, please do not hesitate to leave constructive criticism as I have only been making cards for less than a year. I was super excited to buy a cuttlebug yesterday since I have wanted one for more months than I can count and am happy with my first result in using it.

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Pure Poppy, Enchanted Evening
Stamp: Tiger Fun (digital - Karen's Doodles)
Ink: None *gasp*
Other: Cuttlebug (Provocraft), Argyle embossing folder (Provocraft), Computer (for sentiment), Prismacolor Pencils, Odorless Mineral Spirits, Swan flocking powder (Martha Stewart)

Poppy Seed Challenge

I participated in Lisa Johnson's first ever Poppy Seed Challenge and am pretty satisfied with how it turned out. We had to use a flower stamp, light yellow, and crystals or rhinestones. I'm building up my stash of cards and am planning on sending this out to my best friend for her birthday. I'd love to know what you think!

Supplies (All PTI unless noted):
Cardstock: Spring Rain, Aqua Mist, Stamper's Select White
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms, Birthday Basics, All a Flutter (MTME)
Ink: Spring Rain, Aqua Mist

Doodle Dragon Challenge #2

My son's birthday is at the end of May and I am already starting to think of ideas for what to do for his birthday invitations. I decided that I would definitely be using the Party Giraffe by Dustin Pike and thought it'd be fun to play with his 2nd challenge and use the sketch provided as a possible idea for party invitations. Here's my take on the challenge:

Cardstock: blue (DCWV), Teal (from stash), Lemon Tart (PTI), White (from stash)
Patterned Paper: Gaga for Gingham (MTME)
Stamp: Party Giraffe (Dustin Pike) - digital
Other: Prismacolor Pencils, Odorless Mineral Spirits, Scalloped scissors (Fiskars), Cricut Expression, SCAL, Star brads (Craft Essentials), Computer (sentiment)
