Good Morning one and all. Well it's official first day of summer break here at our home...all is quiet in the house not a teenager is stirring...ahhhhhh peace and quiet gotta love it.
The subject of my post this morning is celebrations, specifically Birthdays!! I love birthdays, not only for the cake, presents and such, but the recognition that a birthday is your special day given and created for you by God himself...it's your day., the WHOLE DAY. God made every second ,of every minute, of every hour just for us one day out of the year...HE gave each of us one day to call our own!! I'm always amazed at how detailed God is and how He took time to form me and give me life. Thank you Lord for loving me and thank you Lord for blessing me,thank you for making me whole and saving my soul, Amen.
Today I'm posting some examples of birthday invites that I have made for family. The first is one for my son's 18th birthday party. He wanted something different so we came up with our version of the WPT...MPTE ( Matt's Poker Tour Event) set up included three competition tables for Texas Hold'em, we had a game lounge set up in his room with XBox, and we had another section for checkers, chess, and dominoes. There was something for everyone, it was a great time :)This invite is another pre-cricut and all hand cut. The playing cards are left over misfits from games gone by.
Next is another 18th birthday invite made for "my oldest daughter". She is the epidemy of 80's style and movie fanatic. This one required the brighter the better and the guests were encouraged to come dressed up as some of her fav characters on film, stage, and screen. It was a Save the Date/ Invite combo with magnet on the back. Definitely original for her and only her.
The next one on the list was for a Casino party for my hubby and his best friend in Christ in 2007. Their birthdays are 3 days apart, so we combined them. It is a shaker card with the info background mimicing a large playing card. Items tossed inside are sequins, tiny clear beads, teeny tiny dice, and confetti in the suit shapes. This one was a labor of love and they were and still are worth it!!
Flash forward now to the present and there will be another party for them. A Retro Game Night Brithday Bash . The games requested by the honorees are Dominoes and Spoons. The photo is of a much simpler version then their previous one 3 years ago. Thank goodness for the cricut !!
The last one is definitely not least...in fact it is my fav type of birthday of all time, a baptism. I made this card to recognize a beautiful new baby sister in Christ, who's passion for learning and drinking up everything He has to offer is contagious!! The cross is triple layered and found on the wedding solutions cricut cartridge.
Time to get on with my day...gotta party to plan for the awesome men in our lives. Check back tomorrow for more. Thanks for droppin' by :)
