Party Invites....

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone!
I hope your week is turning out pretty
darn good! Mine... well... Let's see...
I have a lot of projects to get done and I
really haven't put any effort into doing them.... :o(
That's pretty bad! I have to make some Birthday
cards for my oldest son who will be 18yrs. old Saturday
and I need to make some Birthday cards for my youngest
son who will be 8yrs. old May 4th... I also haven't made
my Mom's Mother's Day card and I have to make a bunch of
High school Graduation Invitations for my oldest son.... Plus
I have several Birthday's this next month that I haven't done....
May is truly my busiest month of the year next to Christmas! LOL
I think the stress is why I haven't done it yet.... although you
all know I will get it done... but I'm feeling like a slacker
right about now! I also had to get a couple of Birthday Invites done
for my youngest son as well... I did get those done last night!
He asked me when he was about 6yrs. old if he could have
a sleep over... and I was like... ummmmm well I think you
need to be 8yrs. old for that! Well guess what!!! YESSS
he remember that faithful day! Soooo... He is going
to have a sleepover Birthday party! I'm only letting him
invite 3 of his friends over for the sleepover because I've
been through this kind of thing with 2 other boys and
know better! hahaha  Anyway here is the invitation
that I made for him to give to his 3 little friends! :o)

Card Stock, Ink - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - MME Lemon Twist (Love It)
Embossing Folder - Polka Dots Small (Cuttlebug)
Cartridges - Beyond Birthdays (You're Invited)
Cut @ 1 3/4" Reg. Feature & Shadow
Boys will Be Boys - (Wii Remote)
Cut @ 3 3/4" (2x's)
(Boyz) Cut @ 2"  (letter O cut out 2x's)
(Circle) Cut @ 3 1/2"

I wanted to show you the dimension I did add... I popped
up the Wii remote and the grey buttons for it... and I
popped up the letter O only... I just wanted to make some
things stand out a little more... I pre-designed this in my DS...
and I also did the inside but because our private
info is on it I chose not to show it! Well??
What do you guys think? I'm lovin' the MME Lemon Twist
paper and thought it would be perfect for this card...
Anyway I guess I better get back to work! LOL
I hope you all have an AWESOME Week/Weekend
and I'll see ya again on Monday! :o)

That is just totally cute, Theresa. Sleepover...hmmm You know 3 little boys can seem like 10 very easily. lol It should be wonderful. You're a great mom to stand by what you promised on the spur of the moment 2 years ago. Hope you get everything done without too much stress.

Love this invite Theresa...very, very cool for the guys! You are a brave, brave woman! I remember the last "sleep over" (why do they call it that when NO sleeping takes place?) at my house....whew! Really, you are a great mom to do this and your son will have some wonderful memories to look back on!
