I'm supposed to be getting ready for Cheyenne's 7th Birthday party with her friends, but I wanted to share this with you all first. These were the invitations we made for her family party. She wanted to do a theme party rather then a character party. Fine with me, we can make the decorations! So these are the invitations we came up with. We used my favorite bug to cut the cone and scoops of ice cream. As I sat there looking at them, they were lacking something. So I pulled out my sponges and ink pads and distressed the edges of the scoops. Then I ran the cones through my embossing machine using the Moasiacs folder. I distressed and inked the cones. Much better! It's true, it is all in the details!!!! Then I distressed the background piece, and typed the sentiment on the computer. Cute, and fun invitations! Oh and can we say cheap? All of the materials used were things I had on hand. Cheyenne picked out the colors she wanted to use. Oh and by the way, we found a cute Ice Cream cone pinata!! Perfect! I have lots of cards to post, maybe I will get time when we get back from the party! Hopefully Mr Sun will keep on shining!
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

Sweet Smell of Summer

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
