I've been a little busy....

making my son's birthday invites, but I am very pleased how they turned out!

Here is the pile of Edwin's and Tilda's that I colored with Copics and hand cut. I made 20 in all - boy was my hand tired after I finished these! I just got these new stamps from Magnolia-licious last week!

Here is the invite for the boys in his class: I printed the invite on Vintage Cream, cut notches around the edges and inked it with tea dye distress ink as well as some Basic Black. The "x" stamp is from a SU set. I got my inspiration for this invite from the current Magnolia Ink Magazine. We have this awesome Pirate Ship park in our neighborhood, so it is a perfect setting. Needless to say, Carson is very excited! :) Here is the version for the girls in my son's class.

Thanks for stopping by! ~Tori

This is so adorable. I can't imagine cutting out all those pirates. The children are going to love those invites. What a lovely Mother you are. I think Carson is one lucky little boy. It couldn't be better for you having a pirate theme park near by.

I take my hat off to you! You are a super mom to have stamped, colored and cut out these 20 images and on top of that, look at that wonderful invitation you have made for you son. You'd better scrapbook this invite so he can see what a fantastic mom you are years from now! It is just awesome! Hugs, Cami
