Baby Shower Invites

My good friend Diana is having a baby and she asked me to make the invites! Her theme was a prince and her dad created the little crowns on the computer, which I hand-cut. I went with pocket cards, and this is what I came up with. Originally I had done a star in the circle, but we changed it to fit the theme. There are three different stars stamped on the yellow, so saffron, craft ink Whisper white and a shimmery Versamark. She loved them, and I am very proud of how they came out! All supplies are from Stampin Up except the ribbon. Features Whisper White, So Saffron and Bashful Blue. I borrowed the sentiment from my friend, I'll have to try to see what set it is from. The stars are from the now retired "seeing stars" set.
Note to self though.....don't hand-cut 80 little crowns all in one night!!!! I lost the feeling in my fingers for about 4 days, ( I switch sometimes when cutting with scissors between my pointer finger and middle finger) and in my thumb for about a month! But it was worth it!

I sent you a Liebster Blog Award

Liebster BLOG Award

I got an email bright and early today that someone had commented on my blog. Odd because I havent posted anything in a while, so I was eager to check it out! Low and behold, I had been awarded the Liebster Blog Award.

The award is for blogs who have less than 200 followers and helps promote thier greatness! I want to thank Kimmi at Impressively Yours Gifts for the award! THANKS KIMMI!

The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are unclear but "the word translates from German as "darling" or "beloved". It's given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to generate some traffic for them.

Here are the guidelines for the Liebster Blog Award
1. Acknowledge the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2.Give this award to 5 other bloggers, who must have less than 200 followers, and let them know through a comment on their blog.

3. Post the award on your blog

4. Best of all- bask in the glory, have fun, and share the love!

Okay, now to the best part! Here are the Five blogs I have chosen to receive this award:
1. Breshevia (SheShe) at Lets get Sketchy.
2. Tracy at Owl Be Craftin
3. Gina at Ginas' Stamping Creations
4. Karen at Karens' Creative Outlet
and last but not least

Please share this award, as it was shared with you. The idea is to promote blogs with less than 200 followers, which I think is a wonderful idea. There is so much talent out there that may go un-noticed without awards like this.
