I'm Back!...and Birthday Invitations's been three long years since I've posted! When I decided to start posting again, I couldn't believe it had been that long!! A lot has changed in those three years. I got married in May 2011, started a new job in July 2011 and just had a baby in February 2012! I've still been stamping and making cards/invitations though. I'm really trying to grow my little business and right now they only advertising I've been doing is on Facebook where I have an album dedicated to my cards. I wanted to start blogging again so I can refer people who aren't on Facebook to it and hopefully continue to spread the word! I love mass weddings, showers, birthday parties, you name it and I can make an invite for it. Just shoot me an email and we can go over details.

For my first post back I'm going to share with you invitations I made for my friend, Shakira's, daughter's first birthday (which was today). I used digital scrapbook paper for most of it (I can't remember where I downloaded it from...I got it several months ago). The ladybug wings were created by punching a scalloped circle, drawing black spots, folding them in half and placing them over a clipart ladybug. I was really pleased with how they turned out. And how could they not be cute with that picture on the front?!

I also thought I'd share the card that I made for her. It's cased pretty much 100% off this card I found on Pinterest. I used the 1 3/8 circle punch to make the lollipop pieces and I pulled paper from my bag of scraps, so I'm not even sure which all colors I used :) The sentiment is from the Crazy for Cupcakes set.

That's all for now! I have lots of projects to share that I've made over the past three years, plus I have some I'm working on now. I'm going to aim to post 3-4 times per week, so watch out for more frequent posting!
