Jenna's Party Invites
My friend's daughter call the other night to let me know that she had decided on a mini-golf birthday party for her upcoming birthday. I normally make the invites and other things for her and her sister whenever they need anything. Since their mom is not crafty and I don't have kids, it works out well for both of us! So I got a phone call on Saturday night from Jenna letting me know about the mini-golf and I asked if she had any other requests for the cards and she didn't. That's pretty rare for an almost 10 year old! She knows that I will make something that she will like, taking her likes and dislikes into consideration. This is version 1 of her invites. She hasn't seen them yet, so they may change a little. Jenna and Samantha both love Riley and that is what I normally use to make their things with. Since I am still in the month of my self challenge to use only stuff on hand, I decided to see if I could find enough coordinating papers to make all of her invites plus hopefully her thank you cards to send after the party. I found this DCWV paper and the matching card stock and it is perfect for her. Riley is colored with Copics and the scalloped piece was cut out with Nestabilities. "Join Us" and "Party" come from a Fiskars party set and the "Fore" is from a TAC set of the same name. The pink and green inks are both CTMH. Jenna is all about pink and shiny things so I used these metallic spots that I got from Jo-Ann's as a golf ball. Hopefully she will like them!
