No Girls Allowed!

Well.... I can't help myself. I have more cards with Melanie's set Sporty Accessories. This one started out as just a "room" design then with my son's birthday in sight, it quickly turned to a boy's birthday invite! HE loved it!! I wanted it to look like a "snapshot" of his room so I cut each stamp out and popped them up with Mini Pop Dots from Gina K Designs (these are the BEST pop dots I've ever used... the paper peels away so much easier than anything I've used in the past). I used a "wood" print DP for the floor and cut it so it looked like a corner of the room. On the inside I used the ball images from the Sporty Accessories set in a light blue so they didn't over power the invite writing. The invite words came from Melanie's Jumping for Joy set. I also used the new Bright Summer Grunge Paper from Emily Giovanni.... the color matched my card base so well. I have to tell you... my son's actual room color IS the color of the base of this card. You could land a plane by it WITH ALL the lights out in the house!! LOL Dad said they could pick their own room color and that's what he wanted. Lucky for me... my Emily ordered up lavender. I'm not sure if she truly likes purple or just knows that mom does... smart girl... brownie points are important. LOL The "Girls Keep Out" was something I free-handed because he said... "I hope we're not inviting girls!" LOL But... to his credit... he did say... "Well... except my sister... she can always come." Awww Have a great day... I know you're all sitting there trying to decide which NEW STAMPS to order today. I say, why ponder... get em all! Hee Hee Signature

Oh Tina...what a wonderful invitation. I just cracked up at the "no girls allowed" sign. How very clever and creative!
