My Boobah is turning THREE!

In October my daughter is turning three...I can't even believe it...I don't even know if I can process how fast it's all flying by!

But I set to work last night and I've just about finished her birthday invitations. She's girlie without being princessy, she's sassy without being snarky, she loves pink but she also loves brown and black! I love that she knows what she likes and what she doesn't. And she's just matter of fact about it!





Basic Instructions:
Cardstock: SU! Barely Banana - distresses around the edges with SU! Chocolate Chip ink, I used the ticket corner punch - the card measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/2
Pocket: SU! Bashful Blue stamped with Pocket Fun - wrinkled and distressed with Buckeroo Blue ink to make it look more like worn in denim. Making Memory brads in the corners.
Ticket: (this is where the party information will be going) Measuring at 1 3/4 x 3 1/2 - Heidi Grace - Heidi's cute cakes Designer Paper stamped with Rubber Soul - Please Join Us. SU! Chocolate Chip ink and hole punched at the top with 5" of SU! Chocolate 1/4 " grosgrain ribbon threaded through. Corners are done with the ticket punch from SU!. The back of the ticket has embossed flowers in pink, blue and brown. (so that there's a *little* girlie, girl displayed in the invitation) Some of the tickets have a flocked background so that rather than being embossed it's fuzzy to the touch. Very sweet.
Left Design: Background is SU! Bashful Blue cut at 4" x 2 1/4". Front piece is also Heidi Grace Cute Cakes DP cut at 2 and not quite 1/4 and it's 3 3/4" tall. Corners are done with the ticket punch.

Monogram: Done in SU! Barely Banana and circle punched with SU! 1 1/4" punch. Stamped with the new Wild West alphabet from the 2007-8 SU! catalog in Chocolate chip. This is mounted on a pop-dot for some extra dimension.
I hope you enjoy!!
Thanks for looking!!
