I can’t believe 2008 is almost over. I don’t think it went by fast, but it sure was a busy year to say the least. I reflected a little yesterday and reminded myself how thankful I am.
I was browsing through my Christmas pics and instantly fell in love with this image. It is peaceful, warm, and welcoming and became my favorite spot in my home this past month. Standing 10 feet tall, this years tree was my favorite (but I say that every year).
I always look forward to January. I love birthdays….and I still enjoy celebrating my own lol. My little Ethan will be turning the big “5” on the 10th. That’s a big one right? School is right around the corner. I even stated to John yesterday that Ethan’s looks are changing. I have a nice party planned already and have been asking what he wants for his birthday (I’ll just continue my search for some items I couldn’t find during the holidays). With a party fast approaching, I have to send out invites tomorrow. Here is what the guests will receive soon.
One of my favorite card samples in the current SU! catalog is on pg. 113. I used the card as my inspiration for Ethan’s invites (and had to change some things up a bit). I have NO NUMBER STAMPS…gasp! So, The main circle works well with the word “five” spelled out. The number 5 on the three smaller circles is actually from the Dec. 25 stamp from the set Winter Post. This is a time consuming invite, but I only had to make 10 total.
Thanks for all of the wonderful comments and support over this past year. Happy New Year!!!
